  2. Email as PDF

    Would love the ability to email as of PDF instead of a JPG. I see when you use PDF it uploads it to convert and OCR, then you can email from there. Ability to email directly as an image PDF or do the OCR without uploading the image would be great.

  3. Save to existing OneNote page instead creating a new page each time

    If you export to OneNote, a new page is created. I would like to be able to add an image to an existing OneNote page.

  7. Please add black and white enhancement option.

    I see no obvious enhancement of the image taken. Autocrop works pretty well btw.

  14. Default save location

    Would be nice if we can set a default save location and just tap on save icon without having to tap the tick mark every time

  15. Save Images to "Office Lens" album instead of the "Camera roll" album

    Currently the temporary images and final good images are stored in the "Camera roll" album folder. This ruins the Photos App's Live Tile. It would be really great if a new album called "Office Lens" created and used for this purpose.

  19. Rotate images

    Ability to rotate images, to override the terrible auto-orientation.

    This feature was recently announced for iOS and Android versions, but not Windows Phone 8+.

    I'm embarrassed to be requesting this.

  20. QR Code Reader

    Please add a QR Code and Barcode Scanner that shows details about the item or for business cards since it is called "Office" lens and add more interoperability with the other "Office" apps. It doesn't necessarily need to capture the barcode or qr code too but can scan it then have the option to read barcodes in a picture. Also, please do fix the apps in Windows Phone. Don't forget. It really is a very important OS. It's just that people are still blinded by iOS and Android.
