Paper to PDF

Hey yall!
Sorry I've been somewhat MIA lately.
I'm working on my gifted endorsement this summer and it is a ton of work!!!
But, to be honest, I don't have much to blog about lately, because I am not thinking about school at all. I'm just trying to keep my head above water with all this work, so come July, I'll be back on the bloggin' bandwagon :)
I did want to tell you a really cool app I discovered the other day. Its called Cam Scanner and it allows you to turn anything you take a picture of into a pdf file. Cool, right? The whole process takes about one minute and is way faster than scanning a document onto the computer.
I used it to take a picture of an assessment I needed for my classes. I took the pic, cropped it, and voila! It was a pdf file! Then I just emailed it to myself and now have a digital copy of the assessment.
I'm thinking this will really come in handy when trying to digitize some old teaching files. I mean, we all have those random papers that we file away and pull out to make copies of, right? Now all those papers can be stored digitally! I know that I have a whole file of papers that I keep on lock down, because those are the only copies I have. more!
It will also come in handy with all those receipts that pile up in the bottom of my purse. Now come on ladies, I know you do the same thing. Buy something, toss the receipt in your purse, and about 6 months later clean them out......right???
Now all those lovely receipts can be stored digitally! I'm not sure about you, but I try to keep all my receipts on purchases I make for my classroom, so I can write that stuff off at the end of the year. This app just made this task much simpler!
Also, I'm sure you all know by now, but Google Reader will be nonexistent come July 1st (along with Google Friend Connect). So, in order to keep up with all your favorite blogs, hop on over to Blog Lovin'. Just about every blog I follow is headed that way, including myself! Please, please, please come follow me on Blog Lovin'! I'd be super sad to lose any of you wonderful followers.


I LOVE reading your comments!!!
