Best Practices

Be careful when using Scanner Pro to avoid generating blurry documents, as blurry documents can be aggravating to try and use. This is easily avoided by making sure that you are using a well-lit location and ensure that you hold the camera as steady as possible. Scanner Pro will wait for you to hold the iPad steady before scanning a document.
