Scanner Apps Make Digital Versions of Paper Documents - NYTimes.com

Excerpt from an overview of why you can probably retire your home fax machine; some of the scanning apps also integrate with Evernote (which includes optical character recognition for images) and/or Dropbox

[…] For the price you might pay to send a fax from the local copy shop, you can buy an app that scans documents, builds PDF files and exports them without all the hardware headaches.

Free apps like JotNot Scanner are a good entry point for cautious buyers, but on Apple, at least, paid apps like TurboScan ($2), Scanner Pro ($7) and JotNot Scanner Pro ($2) are worth the money.

On Android, CamScanner (free for limited version; $5 for unlimited version) offers similar functions, while Scan to PDF is a good free option.
