The standalone Apparent Doxie One is an easy-to-use portable scanner that saves scanned files to an SD card. You can connect the SD card to your computer or iPad directly via a card reader or use Doxie One's USB port to transfer data without removing it from the scanner.
The Doxie One is 10.5 x 2.2 x 1.7 inches in size and weighs just over 13 ounces, small and light enough to store in a laptop bag or tuck away in a desk drawer. The unit uses AC or battery power and comes with a worldwide power adapter. If you want to use the Doxie One where no is power available, you'll need to purchase four AAA NiMH rechargeable batteries.
This portable scanner has a 300 dpi resolution and scans in color only. It saves all images to a standard SD memory card, and it comes with a 2GB card that has an estimated 2,400-page capacity. The Doxie One has a single-sheet paper feed that automatically senses page size. It can handle letter-sized and smaller documents, and it comes with a photo-scanning sleeve to protect delicate photographs while they're being scanned. The Doxie One can process a letter-sized page in about 8 seconds. It has no multi-sheet paper handling capability.
The Doxie One portable scanner comes with custom software to edit and manage your scanned files. This application is available for Windows XP or OS X 10.7 or newer computers, or iPad iOS 5 or newer tablets. You'll also need either a USB connection or an SD card reader. An SD-to-lightning cable is available at extra cost for newer iPads. Once your SD card is connected, the application treats it as an easy-to-use inbox. You can rotate, crop or adjust captured documents, combine individual files into a single PDF document or process them with optical character recognition software, creating text-searchable files. Once you're satisfied with your new documents, you can upload them to a cloud service or save them to local storage. The application has built-in support for saving files to Evernote, Dropbox, OneNote and many other cloud services. Mac users can also send scanned files via iMessage and AirDrop.
Apparent's Doxie One portable scanner combines easy-to-use standalone document capture with a user-friendly application for document processing and management. The scanner uses an AC wall adapter, but you can use batteries to operate it in areas without electricity. All scans are saved to a standard SD card, so it's easy to transfer files to your home computer or the cloud.
