The best iOS app for annotating images »
A markup app can be used in many different ways, like showing design changes, pointing out something funny to your friends, or using it as an educational tool.

How to use Scanbot more efficiently »
Scanbot, the best scanning app for iOS, has several useful features that let you scan and process things faster. In this post, Bradley walks us through several of his favorite tips for scanning documents with Scanbot.
MacStories: Scanbot turns 6 »
Speaking of Scanbot, they released a major version (6.0) earlier this week that features some great new features. These new features allow you to manipulate scans after you’ve taken the initial scan, which is a huge improvement for those times when editing and adjusting a scan is necessary. Like John Voorhees (MacStories) mentions in his summary, I also miss the old icon, but at least the app is more powerful now.
Look for an update to our review of Scanbot soon.

They didn’t include any details in the media invites, but there’s a lot of speculation that we will see refreshed MacBooks across the board. Whatever they plan to announce, we’ll know for sure after the even on October 27 at 10am PDT. Jason Snell (Six Colors) will be at the event, so follow along next week to see what Apple announce.
