We have offices all over the place that we can stop in and scan or I can wait until I get home to do so. I don't need a portable one in my car. But, there are free apps if you don't have that luxury.

Google has an app for that ( PhotoScan). Scannable if you have Evernote ( IOS only), or Office Lens ( Android and IOS I think). Other option Flip Pal, or check and see what your local genealogy society uses. Portable scanner is a must have if you do genealogy research.

I got one several years ago and used it a few times before I learned I had an app for that. Love, love, love using my Genius Scan app with my iPhone. I even use it at home though I have a scanner in my home office. It is one of the basic tools in my Realtor toolbox.

I used to use the one from the Neat Company, but have not needed a scanner in years from the road, as I'm paperless and so are most of my service providers.
