  2. Apply a default filter to the entire batch.

    I wish it had default filter setting that, if I set to B/W, always scanned and converted my entire batch to B/W. Currently, I have to apply filter one by one to each page in a 16 page pdf document—it’s tedious and annoying.
    Please add this feature.

  3. Aspect ratio scaling option

    Aspect ratio scaling option (specify paper size as A4 or 4:3) so when it de-skews it stays relative to original proportions

  4. Edit Business Cards after scanning

    It'd be great to have an easy way of editing business card contacts after scanning, so we can easily correct the mistakes before saving / exporting to VCF

  11. Add in faxing capabilities

    If we could be able to fax text email airdrop or any other sending method it would set this app apart and I would be able to get rid of 3apps and just have one

  12. Selecting more photos at once

    It would make life a lot easier if you could select more than one photo at a time, when importing.

  16. Fix issue where some images incorrectly rotate or display upside down when exporting as PDF

    I'll take 4 pictures of my document pages. Pages 1 and 2 may be correctly postioned but when page 3 will be upside down and page 4 will be rotated to the left.

    It's not always this exact situation but I very very rarely have a situation where all of my images are correctley oriented after I export my PDF.

    Note that the images are all correctly oriented on the screen before the export screen

  17. The App needs better resolution

    The resolution, when used with the iPad (the description in the App Store said it was compatibles!), needs to be higher. All of my scanned documents are at a very low quality; can't read the document.

  20. Please fix cropping and rotating

    Used to work rock solid before last update. Now cropping and rotating produce weird results. Parts are missing. Hav to save and verify to see if u got what u wanted. Trust level way down. Back to taking photos and cropping manually. Nice step backwards.
