How easy is it to use the Flip-Pal mobile scanner with Wi-Fi enabled laptops and mobile devices like smartphones, pads, and tablets? Simply purchase the Flip-Pal wireless scanner (model 100D) or replace the conventional SD card that was included with the scanner model 100C with the FlashAir card in the Flip-Pal Wireless Upgrade! The FlashAir card stores the scans like a regular SD card, but unlike the others it includes built-in Wi-Fi that connects your scanner to mobile devices (smart phones, pads, tablets) and Windows or Mac computers. View your scans on your favorite device, with far superior image quality than can be captured by the mobile device’s built-in camera. You can review your scans on the device’s larger screen as well as the small LCD screen on the scanner. Don’t like what you see? You can immediately rescan your originals on the spot. Use your apps to send the scans via email or directly to Internet sites to connect, share, save and enjoy.
The Wireless Upgrade contains a 16GB Toshiba FlashAir SDHC card and a Quick Start Guide with its code. Keep the card for possible future use reinstalling the software – you may need the code. The Toshiba card converts a model 100C scanner to the model 100D.

The Keenai apps have been replaced by Toshiba’s. If you have an older Wireless Upgrade and have already installed the Keenai app, it will continue to wirelessly transfer the scan files from the scanner, but the upload to the Keenai online photo sharing service is no longer available.
One caution – don’t install the app on the iPad/iPhone and also the Desktop Mac Desktop software on your Mac computer. If you do, you might end up with some scans on the iPad/iPhone, and some on the Mac. Instead, choose one (probably the computer since it has more disc storage space) and have it sync via iCloud to the other one. If you are traveling without your computer, the 16GB will hold about 7,000 scans, more than enough to wait until you get home and transfer them to the computer.
