When Apple developed iBooks, the first thing that I thought of was how one app could revolutionize the education market.

The free app can be used to send and receive faxes via your iPhone. To send faxes, though, you need to sign up for an eFax Plus account.

If you're someone still needing to fax in this age of email, this might be a good solution.
