Scandrop Beams Desktop Documents To Your Cloud Storage Service

If you have ever wondered how you can get paper documents from your desktop into the cloud let me introduce you to Scandrop, a nifty little utility that uses your desktop scanner to capture an image of your documents and then uploads it to either Evernote, Google Docs or an OfficeDrop account. Simply download the software and install, scan your documents and then choose which service you want to store them in.

The video below shows you how it works with Evernote but the same principal works with Google Docs. If you prepare correspondence or whatever with Docs and get a snailmail response, just scan that in and upload it to Docs and link it to your original letter.
