You get up in the morning with the mobile alarm, automatically, it goes into sound mode
You leave the house, the WiFi is deactivated automatically, the data is activated, and when you board your car, your favorite Spotify list is activated
You get to work, the phone automatically goes into sleep mode
Finish your day, when you get home the WiFi is activated again, the phone is put in sound mode, the most important news of the day have been sent to your Telegram account, and some of them have been shared in your Twitter account
The evening comes, automatically, the smart bulbs of your house turn on, in the tone and intensity that you have set
You go to bed, when you connect the mobile to the charger goes into silent mode and turns off the WiFi until the next day

Further, is able to change the tone of the documents we scan , I explain. If right now you take a photo of some document, because of the white balance of your mobile, it will be more bluish or yellowish. Camscanner is responsible for converting it to be completely white , so we can send it without anyone knowing it is a photograph.
