OfficeDrop Releases Free Mac Scan-to-Cloud App and Updates Paid Mac App

Free ScanDrop Lite Lets Users Scan Paper Documents Directly to the Cloud or Local Disk, Improved Paid App Adds Document-Splitting and Features Unlimited Uploads

CAMBRIDGE, MA--(Marketwire - Aug 31, 2011) - OfficeDrop today announced a free addition to their ScanDrop for Mac app lineup, ScanDrop Lite. The company also introduced an update to the paid ScanDrop for Mac software. ScanDrop is a scanning software application that digitizes and organizes scanned documents directly to the cloud or to a Mac's local disc.

Here's what's new:

ScanDrop Lite is a brand new free app from OfficeDrop, available for download in the Mac App Store. Like the original version of ScanDrop, users can scan documents directly to the cloud with ease. With the lite app, users can:

  • Upload 15 pages per month to a variety of cloud programs including Google Docs, Gmail, Evernote and DropBox
  • Upload unlimited pages to OfficeDrop's cloud filing cabinet

ScanDrop for Mac ($9.99) has significant updates, including:

  • Unlimited uploads to either OfficeDrop or any of its cloud services integrations (Google Docs, Gmail, Evernote or DropBox)
  • Document splitting, which enables users to upload multiple pages at once, then split them into separate documents

For example, an HR administrator could upload a new hire's paperwork using ScanDrop, then easily separate it into multi-page documents, differentiating the employee's healthcare application from the W-4 form. These documents could then be tagged and sorted into appropriate folders. Pages also become text-searchable once scanned, so they can be easily found when needed.

Both ScanDrop Lite and ScanDrop for Mac now have:

  • Syncing of cloud tags, folders, collections and notebooks when scanning to Gmail and scanning to Evernote. Users can look up cloud metadata (like tags) that they have already created, and sort documents as they are scanned
  • Powerful tools to create better PDFs, including the ability to preview, rotate, crop, delete and drag-and-drop to reorder pages prior to upload
  • Automatic attachment of scanned documents to Gmail and other popular desktop email programs
  • OCR (optical character recognition) for Google Docs users, Premium Evernote users and users of OfficeDrop's digital filing system

"We are excited to bring a free version of our ScanDrop app to market, reaching new users and allowing them to scan and store unlimited documents in OfficeDrop's digital filing system," said OfficeDrop CEO Prasad Thammineni. "Additionally, the ability to separate pages from bulk scans into individual documents is a valuable tool that our users have requested, and we are pleased to provide that functionality in our paid ScanDrop app. We believe these developments will help us continue our mission to give paper new life in the cloud."

ScanDrop works with the majority of scanners currently on the market. The software can be installed and connected in minutes. Download ScanDrop Lite or ScanDrop for Mac at the Mac App Store. A limited lite version of ScanDrop for Windows is also available for free download on the OfficeDrop website.
