Select Canon MFPs Support New Android Version of Canon Mobile Scanning for Business App


Google-Android-Market-300x300Canon U.S.A. reports that its Canon Mobile Scanning for Business App for mobile devices supported by Android operating systems, including select tablets and smartphones. Canon Mobile Scanning for Business enables users in homes and offices to scan hardcopy documents over their wireless network from a supported imageCLASS, imageRUNNER or imageRUNNER ADVANCE MFP directly into their compatible Android device.

The Canon Mobile Scanning for Business App features the following tools:

Intuitive MFP Communication

The app can search for and identify compatible Canon MFPs within a wireless broadcast range and automatically save these devices for future use. If the Canon MFP cannot be found within a wireless broadcast range, users can manually enter the IP address of the compatible Canon device to list it as one of their available scan devices. Once discovered, users can toggle between compatible devices to initiate scan jobs from multiple MFPs.

The app supports Android Tablets and Smartphones running OS 4.0 – 4.4.2. A variety of built-in scanning options enable users to enhance control and performance. Users can tailor scan resolution, paper size, file format, color mode, and two-sided (duplex) scanning directly from the app.

Once an original is scanned from a compatible MFP, users can opt to save the file to built-in local application storage (Camera Roll, My Documents) for later retrieval, attach it to a pre-set email address for distribution to colleagues, or open it into the Canon Mobile Printing app to quickly print the file through a compatible device.

Device Management

Users can access detailed status information by linking to the device’s remote user interface (Web portal), which gives the user even greater accessibility and capability to manage the equipment.

The Canon Mobile Scanning for Business App for Android is available for free from Google Play or at (search for “Canon Mobile Scanning for Business”). For product specifications and the latest device information, visit the Canon U.S.A. Web site here.
