PFU (EMEA) Limited today announces a major update to its mobile application for ScanSnap, ScanSnap Home (for mobile), marking the first step towards achieving seamless PC-free ScanSnap functionality.
This is the first in a series of planned updates, introducing support for individual cloud linkages and email transmission settings for ScanSnap models equipped with a touch screen as well as official support for Chromebook.
