Genius Scan+ is an excellent application for when you're away on business and need to keep track of expenses, letting you quickly use your iPhone camera to scan receipts for your records. It also comes in handy for making quick copies of documents, shopping lists, or recipes, for example, but really any time you need a quick copy, Genius Scan+ does the job well.

Upon launch, you have the option to use a picture in your iPhone library or to create a new one using the iPhone camera. Once you have your scan, you can use Genius Scan+ to crop the image by means of a unique interface feature that lets you drag the corners of a grid around the area of the image you want for the perfect crop. Especially handy for business travelers, Genius Scan+ makes it possible to group several of your scans on one page, making for easy organization when it's time to report your expenses.

Though the app seems like a fairly straightforward way to make copies of documents, Genius Scan+ really shines with added features to make copying and managing documents much easier. The program supports popular apps like Dropbox, Elements, and Evernote, so you can sync up with other devices and computers for easy export. Along with automatic syncing with the apps listed above, Genius Scan lets you export your documents as JPEG and PDF file types, or you can simply send them via e-mail.

Among some of the other handy features, Genius Scan+ offers page frame detection, perspective correction, and scan post-processing, so you know your results will be readable and ready to attach to your expense reports.

Overall, if you're a frequent business traveler who wants a good way to track your many receipts or if you just want a way to scan documents (or classroom and meeting-room whiteboards) for later use quickly, Genius Scan+ has the right set of tools to make it easy.
