Sending GlobalGiving your stories

You may deliver paper stories to GlobalGiving in one of three ways. We prefer the first or second way: 

Some apps we have tested are: 

★★ Scan to PDF (free on android) - Okay, but not ideal

★★★★★ Genius Scan (free on iPhone) - Awesome, easy to use, and high quality images generated without messing around with camera settings

★★★★ Genius Scan for android ($2) - all around best one, but "blocked" if you have a phone in a developing country where the google Play Store doesn't let you spend money for apps!

★★★★ MDScan ($1) - If you can pay a few dollars for an android app, this one will work well even with cheap camera phones. The free version is limited to 4 pages per PDF generated

★★★★★ Dictadroid Lite - simple to use, free to download, and makes emailing the recording very easy. 

★★★★★ iTalk recorder for iPhone - simple dictation app for iPhone. Record and email the file to us. We'll do the rest.


File size / image quality should be similar to these examples (downloadable, but too big for web-pages):
