E-vault

30 May

I’m always looking for my papers: monthly pay slip, car insurance, electricity bill, … You never find it when you need it!

I still continue to sort them and store them in my blue file but it’s a pain to look for a specific document … maybe i’m a bit lazy.

my blue file

I found the trick, I scan the docs … not with my printer (too far) but with a super cool app on my iPhone! Then, I store it on my dropbox. So I always everything reachable in a split second, love it.

Here’s how to

1/ download the app Scanner For Me on the iTunes store, launch the app

2/ put the document on a different background colour than the document you want to scan

3/ hold the device still until a blue square captures the document

Then save it to the camera roll, send it by mail (if you scan more than one doc, it will build a pdf file instead of 3 pictures) or store it in the iCloud.

4/ little tip: smart-rename your files, or it will be a mess … Like in the blue folder in my closet …

Passbook anyone?

6 Oct

PassbookYes, you know what it is … it’s one of the app pre-installed on your iPhone. I event tried to erase it because I didn’t see its use but I couldn’t do it because it’s part of the Apple apps.
Lately, I’ve been traveling with Air France  (when they don’t strike …) and I checked in with the Air France app that’s how I discovered accidentally the use of Passbook.

Passbook Enjoy your flight with Passbook My e-ticket

Basically, Passbook gathers all your tickets (not only boarding passes but also you receipts, loyalty cards, coupons, …).

You can add your tickets to Passbook from
. emails,
. apps (check the list of apps working with Passbook)
. or by scanning the bare code.

Why can this be useful?
First of all,All my tix at the same location
. all your tickets are gathered at the same place (saving you time when you look for it in your phone and can’t find them and the crowd behind you is growing angry).
. the D-day, your ticket pops on your locked screen for you to show in only one little swipe to the smiling hostess or steward!
With Passbook, you’ll also keep a track of your purchases, tickets, coupons.

Definitively worth a try!

PS: Depending on your country of origin (the nationality of your bankcard recorded in iTunes, you’ll be proposed different list of companies that are collaborating with Apple).
