      • rename

        LET US RENAME PDF FILES BEFORE SAVING!!!!!!!!

        Android already has this function, I've been naming my scanned PDF files according to the content within them for easy searching, when in-document search isn't enough to catch the keywords.

        I thought iOS apps were supposed to be better! This is such a basic functionality and this makes me want to move back to Android.

            • Office 365 on Android

              I want to use the app on Android (workshop for ophobe users) for my work, so it will be great if I can save it to OneDrive for Business.

                              I think its annoying that it is only possible to save to one drive and I want other places I can save to.

                                    • please add support for other cloud services e.g. dropbox

                                      Skew and colour correction work well though.

                                        • Multi-page documents

                                          It needs to support multi-page documents. I wouldn't even mind it as a swipe option in addition to document and whiteboard. Maybe swipe up, with document selected, and it changes between single page docs and multi-page docs?
