Apple mentions an iPad running OS X El Capitan in the latest trademark filings

In Apple's latest trademark filing for OS X El Capitan, they now mention the possibility for “tablets” (read iPad) to run OS X.

Hidden in the dense verbiage of Apple’s latest trademark filing for OS X El Capitan is an intriguing detail not previously seen in similar filings for OS X Mavericks or Yosemite — revealing that Apple’s next-gen OS X could possibly be on its way to the iPad.

Yes of course that could also mean that Apple is just cautious and add everything they could think of to this filing. But the interesting part is that it wasn't there when they did the same filing for OS X Yosemite.

It could mean the possibility that the rumored iPad Pro could be able to run OS X El Capitan when docked to a keyboard, and runs iOS when not. As an example. That could be cool. And as I've been doing videos about before, Apple also has some patents for a kind of flat surface device that can run a virtual keyboard and touch pad using Force Touch. And in the patent drawings you can clearly see an iPad docked to such surface device. That could be for this solution with OS X El Capitan.

Scanner Pro 6 for iOS by Readdle

Scanner Pro 6 by Readdle is a really useful iOS app. It's an app to scan documents, receipts, bills and you name it.

Yes I know that Evernote has a free app called Scannable that basically do the same, and the feature is also built in directly into Evernote, but Scanner Pro can do so much more, especially when it comes to sharing.

And I think the scanning procedure works better with Scanner Pro than with Evernote's Scannable.

And one of the best new features in Scanner Pro 6 is Scan Radar. Scan Radar checks your Photo Library to see if their is documents, receipts, bills or whiteboards in photos you've taken. This means that you don't have to open the scanner pro app every time you need to scan a document. You can scan faster using your camera app from the lock screen. Scanner Pro will take care of the rest, so you will never miss a document or receipt again.

I use this app a lot because I don't like papers, I have a totally paperless office. I scan everything really. And both Scanner Pro and the new Scan Radar feature integrates perfectly with a lot of other Apps and services. For example Evernote, iCloud, Dropbox and Google Drive.

It would be cool if we could save scans directly to the Google Photos app too though.

I can highly recommend the app Scanner Pro by Readdle.

Check it out in the App Store here. It's on sale at the moment.
