Hi Luis.

Step1) To create a pdf based in different pictures taken from any mobile, I use SOS Notes app from Oxford. It's free and available for iOS and Android.
Step 2) After obtaining pdf (ilimited pages and pictures) you can attach it in odoo expense, send it by email or share it in dropbox as indicated by Nhomar, Eric and Antony.

There you can check administrator's today expense with attachment, created entirely from my android mobile.

Only requirement is to use an "Oxford SOS enabled" paper page in the back of your tickets. As you can see it uses some guides printed in page squares.
This is a small  disadvantage, but helps getting a quality document. And that's Oxford's business :-) 
And no, I don't work for them.
Maybe you could find another similar app without this requirement.

I hope it helps.
If it's possible, just let us know the solution you finally adopt.

Best regards.

It sound OK, but how to build a single file with all receipts? Imagine a week worth of traveling for a salesperson means 20 tickets/invoices or the like ...
Trying to clarify: 
The idea would be to have an app in the phone that collects a set of pictures (photographs of parking, restaurant, whatever...) in one file (PDF, most likely) and allows some type of upload into Odoo. 
Interim compromise: Build a single PDF file and email it to the user who downloads it to the computer and from there, yes, uploads it manually into Odoo.

Why not use the attachment system?

We are seriously considering using Odoo for employee expense reporting. 
The ease of use and administration by accounting (plus approval process) is a great point FOR such a way of handling them.
The main issue AGAINST is how to upload the receipts.
We used an iPhone based app that allowed us to take pictures and attach them directly to the expense report, bypassing the camera roll altogether.
We do not believe in messing up that personal area of the phone so we are looking for an existing extension that may allow direct picture upload.
Is anyone aware of such an extension? Free or for a fee?
Thank you in advance
