Back in 2011 Doo closed a $6.8 million round for its big play to attack the world of collaboration and documents. Basically they want to kill off paperwork and make everything digital. To that end they have released an Android app earlier this year and today they have launched their iPhone version, you can download it here.

We have also gained exclusive access to a preview of their upcoming iPad app, see below.

Essentially Doo wants to be the “The Document App” where you can find and edit every Document you have, whether it is stored in Dropbox, Google Drive, Evernote, you name it. As well as working with documents you can use the apps to scan with OCR, which also comes with auto-tagging, creating searchable PDFs and sending them to your preferred storage location. Doo also has apps for OS X, Windows 8 and Windows Desktop will follow.

It’s ompetitors include Evernote and more recently Quip.
