CamScanner was one of the most popular and useful Chinese Apps in India, certainly the most popular document scanning and organizing App. But after the recent Chinese Apps ban incident in India many Apps have been barred from operating in India.
To take on the opportunity a couple of IIT students have developed an App called DocStack, which is also a document scanning and organizing App, but have a slight edge over CamScanner.
DocStack offers you multiple features on the go like saving your documents, scanning and taking a picture or the ability of importing files directly from your photo library. Other notable features includes cloud storage options and sharing feature via AirDrop.
“It not only lets users create high-quality scans on the go, but the universal search feature lets you find them easily when you need them the most”, say the developers.
The only drawback we found was that the App is only available on App Store for iPhone users, an Android version is not developed yet.
According to the developers, limiting the app only for iPhone users was an intentional move as XCode, the platform in which the application is coded makes an app more efficient for users.
Whatever the scenario is, I believe we need to be happy and proud that we have a better looking alternative for a industry leading Chinese App. Lets hope DocStack can also replicate the success of CamScanner.
