  2. Please add black and white enhancement option.

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

  4. Auto correct contrast and colors

  6. 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

  8. 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.

  11. 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

  13. 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.

  18. Choose one note location

  19. Scans are stuck "waiting to transfer" even though connected to wifi, 4g, and msft account

    Even though i am connected to wifi, 4g, and msft account all scans never transfer. Internet access is good. Appears to be a major bug and I'm surprised it wasn't reported here as others have the same issue in the reviews.
