- Google has released a new app called Stack.
- Stack allows users to better scan, save, and organize critical physical documents.
- It’s only available in the US for now.
Google has a new useful app in its arsenal for those who want a complete way to scan, store, and organize important documents. Dubbed Stack, the app is developed by the company’s Area 120 division — the team behind old favorites like Reply and Grasshopper.
Stack is effectively a scanner app with an AI twist. It lets users scan important documents, receipts, or bills using the smartphone camera. The app also uses Google’s language recognition and optical character recognition smarts to name it and suggest its correct category automatically. These categories, obviously called “stacks,” are effectively virtual filing cabinets.
The app also extracts other vital details from documents, like account numbers, totals due from bills, and due dates. This feature makes the figures and text easier to copy across to other apps, messages, or mails. Integrated search also allows users to trawl through documents using keywords.
As for security, Stack can be locked with facial recognition or a fingerprint. The app can also save copies of the documents to Google Drive.
Stack is only available for those in the US at the moment. There’s no word from Google when the app will be available in other regions. As it’s an experimental app, there’s also no promise that Google will continue to support Stack well into the future. Nevertheless, you can grab it on the Google Play Store via the below button.
