  1. Select onedrive folder

    • Please add black and white enhancement option.

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

        • Auto correct contrast and colors

          mainly for ocr purposes, like black and white document scanners do.make it so that a photo of a printed document can be converted from grayscale to pure black and white

            • 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

                • Two sides business card support

                  Many international business cards are two sided with different information on each side. It would be great to be able to capture both sides at once.

                      • Tag the photos and documents with key words for easy retrieval

                        For organizational purpose it would be great to tag the documents with keywords and have folders within the app to organize. And when making documents it would be great to change the order in which the photos are combined to make documents

                        • Allow multiple pages to be scanned into one pdf file.

                          Allow multiple pages to be scanned into one pdf
                          Current option is to scan and save each page separately

                            • Better conversion to text

                              Currently the conversion is poor.

                              • Automatically save to Dropbox

                                Most pictures will automatically go to my camera uploads in Dropbox, but these do not. Would be nice if they automatically saved (without me having to name them) and if they saved to a location that Dropbox could pick them up automatically.

                                      • Fix authentication error for Office Lens.

                                        Saving an image is stuck because of an authentication error. Put in the code for work account and now it just spins. Rebooting or relaunching finds the image still there. Can't figure out what the problem is. Just stuck.

                                        • Manually adjust focus area

                                          The option to manually adjust the focus area of the shot. The focus area tends to jump between area to area. Its hard to get perfect shot, this should help when doing either top of document or bottom. Possible options: Pre-set sizes for top of page and bottom, and full. Plus manual size adjustments pre-shoot. Less retakes!
