Building bank deposit functionality in FMGo app. User will take pictures of front and back of check. At the time of taking the picture, I want ability to auto-crop and square up the image of the check.


Essentially, just like your personal bank deposit app works.


Two avenues as far as I know...

1. use URL scheme with a separate app, like Scannable (Evernote)

2. use a javascript library


My preference is a javascript library as I would not be beholden to another app.


I've done some looking but cannot find an option for either. I can find plenty of image cropping apps but none where I'm certain of the the type of auto-cropping I want or whether a URL scheme is available. I can find js libraries for cropping but not sure if any are the type of auto-cropping such as would be used for a bank check (rectangular box).


Before I spent more time just wanted to check and see if anyone has tackled this as well.
