It is a terrific idea, and no, one does not need an iPhone. (This post is a description of yet another useful task to which one might apply an iPhone). Such scanning can be done with a cheap and cheerful flatbed scanner, or even a digital camera. Many digital cameras, in fact, have a "scene" or "program" setting for macro and/or documents. I have done it with various Canon and Olympus point-and-shoot cameras and Micro Four Thirds cameras. An iPhone is simply more convenient because it is always in your pocket wherever you are, and there are apps for it. I have used a free app with my iPhone for this purpose.
