The Doxie One is the newest addition to the Doxie family. Now, it's easy to go paperless. Doxie is unlike any other scanner, it's small enough to tuck inside a drawer, and light enough to carry around with you. Take the Doxie One wherever you go, its small compact size makes it travel friendly, and allows scanning without the need of a laptop or a computer. This scanner is not tied down to your computer like other scanners are. Simply insert what you want to scan (a photo, a document, or a receipt), and push a button. Use the Doxie app to organize your way, and send your scans to Evernote, Dropbox, and even to friends or colleagues with iMessage on iPhone, iPad, and OS X. Plus this app comes with Auto Adjust™, which applies automatic contrast, rotation, and cropping to make every scan look amazing. Scanning is no longer a long process, share, back up, and access your paper everywhere you go. Set-up is always easy, it works much like a digital camera, simply insert the SD card (provided) and begin scanning away.
