The @Doxie Go Wi-Fi Review

I've been a big fan of Doxie for many years now. I've been striving to be free of paper more and more and Doxie has helped me fight that battle. Now, there is a new Doxie Go Wi-Fi that allows me to scan on the go and connect directly to my mobile device. 

The Doxie Go Wi-Fi was simple to use and easy to set up. I was scanning within minutes of downloading the iOS app on my phone and iPad. The free app allows users to connect to the Doxie Go Wi-Fi and access all of the scans on their device. From there, the user can send those to their favorite cloud storage system.

The Doxie Go Wi-Fi has it's own Wi-Fi that you connect your device to so that you can grab the scans from the scanner. Once the connection has been made, the PDFs can be added to your device and shared in many different ways. For me, I send my scans to Evernote for my personal work and I send my school scans to Google Drive. I could text them or email to others if it something quick. 

The Doxie Go Wi-Fi sill can connect to your computer and the Doxie software is still great for quick edits to the scanned documents. The flexibility of being able to scan and connect to my mobile device when I'm traveling and still make scans when I'm home and connected to my computer is priceless. 
Some try to say that taking pictures with your phone is "good enough" for scanning documents and I just do not buy it. Doxie Go Wi-Fi will scan in full color up to 600 dpi. That makes for very crisp photos and documents. I have been scanning old family photos using my Doxie and it works great. I can keep scanning and saving my work as I go. I can sit comfortably on the couch and scan away and connect to my computer when I'm ready. The portability of the scanner is a nice feature that should not be understated. 

The Doxie Go Wi-Fi is listed at $229, but there is special education pricing that is worth checking out. The Doxie Go Wi-Fi has been an excellent addition to my backpack as I travel to conferences and have more of a mobile work station in my life. The Doxie Go Wi-Fi is worth adding to your educational space and personal life. 

Doxie sent me a Doxie Go Wi-Fi for the purpose of this review, but I still love it because it is awesome.
