You need a good scanner so you get the best quality saved. Forget about using your phone for that.

Tiny Scanner for the phone but not for archiving photos.

Go get a scanner. I had a flat bed and a local museum likes it so much I gave it to them.

As Michael Jacobs might say...it depends...

It depends on whether you want the best quality and the easiest way of doing this.

If that's the case - might I suggest this flatbed scanner

I have a scanner I paid under a $100 for and it works so well. I do not think you can do better Gita.

GET A SCANNER!!!!!   I cannot stress that highly enough!  Either buy a good scanner or go to some place like Costco, Walmart or most office stores (Office Depot/Kinkos) that offer a digital conversion service.  The quality will be far superior and you'll be able to do more with them (as far as printing and mounting options) than if you had taken a picture of them.

Many multifunction printers also include very good scanners.  That's what I currently do.

Pinter/scanners are now very inexpensive. They make their money on ink.

CNET has a good list of "Best Scanning Apps for Android and iPhones"

For photos, I would do as others have suggested... use a flatbed scanner to get higher quality images.

I've had good experiences with Tiny Scanner and it has phenomenal reviews. Scanned images can be saved in folders and/or shared to dropbox, Drive, email, etc. It scans to PDF though, so if you are only scanning pictures and nothing else might not be best for you. If you also want to scan documents at some point then I would highly recommend it.
