Nifty app for turning pics into a pdf

I was looking for an app that would allow me to take pictures of book pages and then create a pdf file. Genius Scan is doing the job for me. I like that it can auto crop, auto take the picture and then afterward I can adjust cropping if needed. It seems to take some of the page distortion away also. I'm using it to create pdf files of my music books so I can view them on my iPad when I am away from home. Very cool.

Should mention that it's for your iPhone/iPad.

Preview will let you assemble a PDF from pics pretty quickly and easily on the Mac.

I rarely use it, but for some reason I switched from Genius Scan to Scanner Pro. It's good too.

Scannable is also very good. And fast!

"Apps," in terms of usage, is currently in transition, despite what our Overlords say.

Thanks for the app suggestions. Scanner Pro had better skew adjustments and it has built in OCR but it has terrible edge detection. Scannable was super fast but does not appear to have any skew adjustment at all. There doesn't seem to be one app to rule them all yet.
