I have been using this application called Camscanner. Document's text is clearly visible!
And I can sync across all my mobile devices

Camscanner is a really good one, then there is also Mobile Doc Scanner Lite which I find to work well.

You can also scan using the Google Drive app. when opening up the app, open the menu and tap on Add new. Here oyu will choose the scan option. You can even add a Drive widget to your home screen and tap on the camera icon to make it open quickly to the scan interface.

What's great about it is that Drive will also extract the document part from the rest of the photo to be saved separately in a PDF file, which you can then rotate and crop at will.

Evernote is good too.

Thanks for the great share. I use Google drive everyday.
Is it working with iOS devices like iPhone 5?

YouSnap is what I use at work especially after meetings to capture what's been written on the board. It lets me export to PDF so that I can share the stuff with my colleagues straight away. I've even found myself using it on weekends, to take pictures of hiking maps before setting out for a long walk. You can find it on Play Store.

Have you tried ScanWritr? It is a fairly new app that made a lot of progress in almost no time. Been using the Pro version for half a year now and don't want to switch. I love the real-time paper detection and ability to sign documents. I probably signed like 15 documents for my bank transactions, stored around 30 important bills... Call me old fashioned, but I even sent fax once :D
