Point, Shoot, Fax With New eFax® Mobile App

eFax Puts a Fax Machine in the Palm of Your Hand

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - November 9, 2010) - eFax® today announced a new iPhone app which transforms the iPhone into a fully-functioning fax machine for mobile professionals and anyone on the go. The eFax iPhone app allows eFax account holders to send a fax by taking a picture of a document using the iPhone's high-resolution camera. Additionally, incoming or stored faxes can be easily received, searched, viewed, archived, or tagged on the iPhone. eFax is a brand of j2 Global Communications, Inc. (NASDAQ: JCOM) and is online at

The eFax iPhone app brings a host of new mobile faxing capabilities to the popular Apple device, including the ability to:

  • Create and send faxes: take photos of documents and the app will enhance the images, combine them, and fax them out just like a fax machine.
  • View and search faxes: quickly view and search all received faxes. Faxes are converted to searchable documents using optical character recognition technology, allowing them to be acted upon anywhere, anytime.
  • Use cover sheets and contact lists: create customized fax cover sheets and use the iPhone contact list to easily populate them.
  • Tag and archive faxes: add search tags to individual faxes and archive them for convenient access later.
  • Send documents by email: send enhanced documents created by the app as email attachments.

The eFax iPhone app is part of the company's recently launched eFax Next™ initiative, an orchestrated rollout of essential business solutions, technology integrations, and feature enhancements to the eFax service. The most recent eFax Next announcement was the integration of eFax into the new HP Photosmart eStation all-in-one printer. Lifetime fax storage and searchable fax capability were also added earlier.

"The eFax Next initiative is all about transforming the way documents do business and bringing increased productivity to busy professionals. This new app is just one example of how fax is evolving with today's business," said Mike Pugh, vice president, marketing for j2 Global Communications, Inc. "The eFax iPhone app gives mobile professionals the freedom to manage business critical documents anywhere, any time."
