Why Buy Flip-Pal

Scanner Comparison

Once you’ve decided that the Flip-Pal mobile scanner suits your needs better than other types of scanners like sheetfeeds, wands, All-in-Ones, and desktop flatbeds, there are many reasons to buy our Flip-Pal – the world’s original mobile scanner.


Our amazing EasyStitch software automatically stitches together multiple scans of large photos, documents, artwork, quilts, maps and more. Like a jigsaw puzzle. Our engineering team took a wide variety of sample images and optimized EasyStitch to handle even the most complex and large on computers with regular amounts of internal memory. Other solutions failed to stitch these.

VERY IMPORTANT! Imagine your disappointment if you were to travel to a library, genealogy site, or to a family gathering, for a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to capture a vintage document or photo, and then return home and was unable to stitch it. Or, require you to purchase a new computer with more memory in order to stitch large originals.

Another reason is our exclusive StoryScans talking images software. For the first time, you can record voice and merge it with the scan to create an image that speaks.  Since the StoryScans files combine sight and sound in a High Definition (HD) industry-standard mp4 file, you can share it over the internet (email, social media, cloud sharing sites) without a separate player, and the voice never gets separated from the image.  That file is also small, and therefore faster to send over Wi-Fi or 3G and takes up less space on the hard drive.

Toolbox software is pre-installed. Download not required

Our Toolbox software is pre-installed on the SD card and doesn’t require a time-consuming download.  It has an intuitive interface with web-like navigation providing Stitching, Editing, Recording, Sharing to cloud, File operations, and informative documents. We make it available for all customers as a free update from our website. We provide the ScanTools app for iOS and Android mobile devices for free.
