    Hey there,

    I had an idea today for an app that would make my life much easier over the next few months. I'll need to be at a library, finding journal articles relevant to my masters project.

    Now, normally, when I find something I need, I would have to get photocopies of each page of the article (because you can't take periodicals out of a library). But, I wondered if I could just take photos of each page with my phone, but then I'm left with a huge mess of photos (since these articles are 20-100+ pages long).

    NOW, I had an idea for an app that could help with this. You open it up, give a name to a new project file, and began taking photos. The program would then tack these images together into a PDF, page by page. When you're done taking pictures, you just click "done," and the program generates the PDF file, with the project name.

    This would save me from using a lot of quarters on the dang photocopier!

    It shouldn't be too complex a program. The hardest part may be figuring out a way to get it to integrate with a PDF generating utility of some sort.

    Try the "CamScanner" app - it does exactly what you're looking for. Although the free version only lets you create PDF's up to 10 pages long, so you'll have to buy the full version for $5.
