    Are there any android apps that allow you to receive faxes to your phone. I just got the HTC Inspire after having an iPhone for the past two years. There was an app called fax burner for the iPhone but I can't find that particular app nor a similar one for android.

    You'd need an app and service. No device has fax hardware so a service is required. There are threads on this topic that you should refer to. I just posted in one yesterday.

    Well, all I know is that I had fax burner, an app, and I was able to receive papers in a PDF form to my email inbox when sent from a fax machine. If it's not technically a "fax" than so be it. I'm not here to play semantics games. If anyone besides this guy knows of an APP that allows me to receive faxes, let me know. I know they exist for the iPhone because I had and used it.

    If you use any of the digital efax services, they can simply convert your faxes to pdf / email and send it to your gmail, no need for an app.
