    Auto focus is a necessity that requires unnecessary action compared to competitors. Whiteboard and document should be easy enough to automatically identify. Perhaps take batch photos in order to deal with focus. Finally, OCR should be standard and automatic. You have the best angle correction but the lack of focus and auto-OCR adds too many steps when one needs to retake photo because OCR is far from accurate. Perhaps add an OCR correction feature so you can gain data to improve similar situations and improve accuracy.

    Once document is identified, automatically capture image when the view is ideal. This way you can use both your hands to steady the phone and don't have to try to hit the shutter button.
