Mustek DockingScan-The Scanner For Your iPads

In my every day work, I use scanner fairly a lot when I need to "capture" documents for use. The conventional scanner that I have in my company is not only cumbersome, but also very rigid. Before this I thought all scanners are the same boring, uninspiring flatbed until I meet Mustek scanner made specifically for iPads! Introducing the unbelievable Mustek DockingScan for all generations of iPads (from 1st to the third reincarnation). Surely a lot of naysayers and skeptics will be saying, "Scanner for you iPad?" The tone of disbelief fills the air...I was equally doubtful as well...

It certainly doesn't look like your ordinary scanner right?

So metallic-ally classy!

I thought it was somewhat "redundant" for your iPad to have a scanner. How wrong was I when I started to have one. The moment I plug my iPad onto Mustek DockingScan, I knew immediately that it was the most awesome scanner I have ever used! Besides scanning photos and documents, Mustek DockingScan can also triple up a a docking cradle and charging station. So basically it is a 3-in-1 gadget! It is really a head-mover mind you. My DockingScan is an elegant white small candybar that exudes so much class to it, especially its round metallic edges.

Click on the i-Scan app and voila you can start scanning.

Before you can use the scanner, you need to install the i-Scan app in Apple Store. Once installed you can start to enjoy scanning virtually anything that can go "inside" the DockingScan. Ha :D Now apart from being aesthetically pleasing, Mustek DockingScan is surprisingly very, very pragmatic. It does its job like magic. I have never ever used such an intuitive scanner and this DockingScan really makes scanning fun, enjoyable and not to mention...classy! Yes. I just pop in a photo that I wanna scan, the photo will be pulled in and voila instantaneously it is being scanned in real-time! Do watch the videos included!

Cool aye!

Watch how I scan the document in 3 simple steps.

Mustek DockingScan can quickly scan your documents and photos into JPEG files and save them directly to your iPad. Easy~peasy! It is capable of full colour scanning up to legal size (8.5" x 14") at 300dpi. Like I have mentioned earlier, one of the coolest features about DockingScan is its real-time preview the moment you pop in a document or a photo. It really can't get any better than this. I think one of the most important reasons why I am so in love with DockingScan is because of its ultra simple and interactive user interface. It only takes you 3 "touches" to scan anything. Awesome right?

It's time to start "archiving" my family photos.

I am so in love with my DockingScan! 5-star rating from me :D

I have even brought my new scanner to my office for my own personal use because it is portable and lightweight. Of course I could not escape my colleagues envious stares. Ha :D Likewise, I have always wanted to scan all my old photos to back them up for future viewing, you preserve the film photos that my family snapped decades ago. I can't believe that Mustek DockingScan is finally making this wish of mine come true. I have thousands of old photos to be digitalized and my new DockingScan is making the "transition" a lot of simpler and fun. Who says scanning is boring. Haha :D

Guess where did I get this unique DockingScan for my iPad? At Lazada of course. You can get all your tech gadgets here at Lazada! Do check out all the special sales on Lazada like I always do. Ha :)
