DocScanner is a paid app for iOS and Android that allows you to scan documents on the go and safe them as PDFs. You can then email the PDF files, or save them to other apps such as Dropbox or Evernote. There is even a built in OCR (optical character recognition) function for converting the scanned image to text.
