After putting in the faxnumber (you can of course access your contacts with the "+"-button), the software is already sending the fax.

  • Faxing stored documents

  • Sending and receiving faxes, SMS, and even proper letters in the post while on the move
    are all easy with the latest mobile technologies, especially the iPad and iPhone.
    The easy-to-use Apple-based Fax.de Customer Center offers you a bridge to traditional
    office communication technology. Faxes have significant advantages over e-mails.

    advantage is that the information is immediately available on paper, can be slid into one's
    briefcase, and put directly in a customer's hands. And printed documents can be read
    anywhere, even without electricity and computer access.

  • How do I upload a document to my mobile device?

    We worked a long time on meeting this challenge and offer you three truly practical ways to upload documents to be sent by fax:

    • Photo Fax
      You photograph the document with your mobile device's camera (if you have one) and the CustomerCenter converts the photo into a black and white fax page.
    • iCloud, Dropbox, GoogleDocs
      Previously prepared documents can be uploaded to an Internet-based cloud server. The CustomerCenter then access the documents directly.
    • iTunes or File-Server
      Your documents can also be viewed via iTunes or you can turn your mobile device into a file server. Then you can view your document on any browser on your mobile device.
  • Photo Fax

    When using Photo Fax, make sure the lighting is sufficient for the document so the fax can be read. In the fax menu, click on "Send New Photo Fax" (the fax must be highlighted below). After the camera window opens, focus the camera on the document to be sent.

    After photographing the document, the app will display the document grid which allows you to check and edit the document margins.

  • After clicking "Continue," the app converts the photo into a black/white fax format and displays the fax-ready document.

    You now can send this page by clicking "Send as Fax."

    If you have additional pages to insert, click on "Insert" to create a multi-page fax.
    To send all document pages by fax, click on the action arrow and select "Send."

    Alternative:
    You can now send the two document pages by e-mail (as a pdf attachment) or save the pdf file for future sending. Enter in the recipient's fax number. You can also retrieve the fax number from the contact list if it has been entered.

  • Faxing Documents

    When the "Documents" field is clicked, the left frame will display the documents saved in the app.

    These documents can be saved by iTunes or a server upload to the iPad.

    If you have connected a cloud server such as Dropbox or GoogleDocs (see Settings), the cloud server will display its folders and clicking on the directory will change to the corresponding cloud server.

  • The following document types can be sent as a fax:

    • Adobe PDF format (.pdf)
    • Microsoft Word (.doc / .docx)
    • Microsoft Excel (.xls / .xlsx)
    • .jpg and .tif graphic files
    • .txt files

    If one of these formats is clicked in the left field, this document will be displayed in the viewing window.

    The action button gives you the option to send the document by fax or e-mail.

  • Text-Fax

    The third fax alternative is a simple text fax with the text directly entered on the iPad keyboard.

    Enter in the recipient's fax number. You can also retrieve the fax number from the contact list if it has been entered.

    For example, a German fax number 040-646545 would be entered as +4940646545.

  • Receiving Faxes

    You can apply for a number to receive faxes when you register or later. Your fax number will be a local landline number if at all possible.

    Now you are able to receive faxes round the clock. You can receive up to sixty faxes at a time, sent either to your e-mail as pdf files or viewed and edited in the fax viewing window on your iPad.

  • When you select the document on the left overview, the received fax will be displayed in the right window. You can see additional pages of the fax by turning the page with your finger. The action button offers the following options:

  • (More) Account

  • Sending SMS (or Voicemail)

    When you click on the SMS tab, you can send SMS directly from your iPad to one of your contacts or any other mobile number.

    The layout is that same as with the fax page. The SMS sent box contains all the SMS you have sent as long as you have not deleted them from the app.

  • As soon as you click on "Send SMS," the SMS dialogue box appears. When you enter a mobile number, that mobile will receive an SMS.

    If you have entered a landline number, the recipient will receive a voice mail! This is a great option you ought to use. This will help expand your use of SMS.

  • While sending, the sending history will be displayed in the bottom of the page. With your finger, you can maximize or minimize the history window.

  • iLetters: Send Post Online

    When you click on iLetter in the lower tab, you can send a proper letter online from your iPad.

    Note:
    At this time, this function is only available in Germany at this time.

  • Only the empty page will be displayed and you can enter the recipient's address by clicking on the address window.

    After entering the address, it will be inserted in the right spot. This is important because window envelopes are normally used to send your letter. By clicking on the text token you can begin to write your letter.
