Atalasoft's 31 Apps in 31 Days

Scan Documents to Scribd

Welcome to the 7th of 31 applications we will post (in addition to the contest participants' submissions). Make sure you add this blog to your RSS / Atom feed and check the gallery for summaries of all the apps as they are released.

Just in time for the Scribd "Most Interesting Hard Drive Contest", here's a free application that can scan documents and upload them to your Scribd account. You can choose to OCR them first, so that your scanned documents will show up in search queries (courtesy of the Google Tesseract OCR engine). Now you can try to win a MacBook Air from Scribd with the scraps of paper lying around your office.

Download the Scan To Scribd installer and run it.

Scan in a document, then Click the "Upload to Scribd..." icon and provide your API Account and Scribd login info (it will be saved for next time).

You can give your document a title and specify whether it's public or private. You can also choose to OCR the file before uploading it. When it's done, go to Scribd and view your document.

This application uses the amazing Scribd.Net, which makes it easy to interact with Scribd from .NET.

Download the application

Download the source

To build your own version from this source, you'll need to get an API Key from Scribd first. Sign in and then go to your platform account page (click on your own name in the upper right corner), your API Account information is on the right side. It will take a few minutes to become active.)  In the downloaded source, you can hardcode your own API Key.
