Neat Brings the Paperless Lifestyle to Android with NeatMobile

    One of the most difficult things about getting into a paperless lifestyle is dealing with the incoming paper items that happen to show up throughout our day. Our receipts, important information that someone wrote down, printouts from meetings, and more usually don’t make it into our digital filing system until we collect them, put them in an inbox, and process and scan them later.

    There are plenty of options out there that will help you go paperless, but today The Neat Company took another big step forward in releasing NeatMobile for Android, allowing Android users that use Neat’s Digital Filing System the option of collecting all of that information on the go with their Android phone.

    NeatMobile

    Neat has announced and made available their brand new app, NeatMobile for Android. This app allows Neat Digital Filing System users to quickly capture all of the things that they may need or want to file while on the go. The app then can sync all of that data from the phone down to the user’s Neat Digital Filing System either through a WiFi connection to the software or with access to the NeatCloud.

    Capture on the go

    One of the best things about NeatMobile is simply that NeatMobile can be with you anywhere and everywhere. Because of this, users that are tying to take the paperless lifestyle to its ultimate end don’t have to worry about even collecting paper to scan for later while on the go. Now they can simply pull out their Android phone, scan the item, and save it for later filing or instant filing through Neat’s NeatCloud.

    NeatMobile reminds me of other apps for iPhone and Android like JotNot Pro or Document Scanner in that they can easily scan documents and make a very readable image. The only big difference between those types of apps and NeatMobile is that NeatMobile is contained within the Neat Digital Filing System ecosystem, which makes the experience that much more complete.

    It’s cool to see Neat quickly move to the forefront of the personal paperless revolution with NeatMobile and their suite of related digital filing products. Here at Lifehack, we are staunch proponents of going paperless — we have talked about going paperless a lot in the past — and it looks like using The Neat Company’s products is one of the best ways to dive in.

    Can Technology have Biases Like Humans?

    Can Technology have Biases Like Humans?

    Technology has taken a vantage leap in providing solutions for man. Before now, technology used to appear complex and would require a great deal of expertise to handle solutions available. Today, we have technology applicable in the simplest human activities as smart products with intelligent algorithms powering them as they make error-free judgments and provide intelligent and analytic solutions.

    Does technology have all the answers?

    This article from Credit Suisse, tells us that technology does not have all the answers because it has been found to exhibit “similar biases,” as humans. No one can discredit the impact of technology, but it is not totally free of human input and this is the reason we experience these biases in many areas we have technology holding foot.

    Creating technological solutions transparently

    This article suggests that the process of creating technological solutions be made transparent and subject to contribution from many people who would end up as users of the product – male, female, young, old, learned, unlearned and all other preferences as we have them. It also underscores the importance of having women on product development teams. This approach is not sure to eliminate all forms of bias, but it is a good way to start in order to appraise the full benefits of technology.

    Technology as the connecting tool

    Technology so far has been a major connecting tool amongst us humans. It is used and appreciated by all regardless of race, language and sex. In order to keep it less subjective to these arguments about human biases. I believe we should gather opinions on products and solutions before making them available to the public. This could be done by gathering input from intended target users and receiving feedback across the stages of production.

    “Recognizing the problem is a start…success will depend on inclusive technologies that meet this vast untapped market.” This cannot be more apt especially at a time when we look up to technology for solutions. We should not muzzle our progress with technology by battling algorithm bias. The first way to avoid this battle is by reading this article here.
