Posted by Rahul Gupta
That time has gone when you needed a fax machine to send and receive fax. Now you can send fax with just an Android Smartphone. It really sounds great as no one want to purchase those expensive and large fax machines when there is a smarter, cheaper and convenient way available. Who could imagine that we'll be able to fax our documents with the help of a phone and Internet connection. But this era is of smartness. New technologies are keep on evolving and this is one of them.

Fax stands for facsimile or sometime telecopying or telefax. As you already know it's mainly used to send and receive scanned printed documents that can contain both text and image. Both side fax machines are connected to output device such as printer.

There are a couple of free fax apps available in the play store which claim to send and receive fax and the only thing needed by them is active Internet connection. That's it, you're done. No need to spend a single penny on those King Kong size fax machines. One can send photos, screen shots and pdf files too to any traditional fax machine. You just need fax number then just attach files and hit the send button. 

But frankly saying I didn't find many free fax apps for android. If they are free to download then require in-app purchases. You'll have to pay if you want to use all the services mentioned in the app. We've covered some of the best fax apps (both free and paid) here to send fax from cell phone. You can check them out below.
