  3. Save

    Firstly thank you for wonderful app..

    There should be provision to autosave without asking me to enter the file name. Sometimes, user may want to take multiple shots of scanning a 3-4 pager signed /printed document..

    Thanks

  4. Set a different default date format for the file name

    Sorting by date is better in yyyy-mm-dd.

  6. Allow to change the default storage location

    By default the app stores the captured image in the internal storage, need to change that to a secondary storage if available

  9. Default destination

    Please allow for setting a default destination in the setting menu. Right now, there are too many steps to capture a document. Especially when capturing multiples.

  10. Select "Save to" in the beginning and keep taking photos

    Instead of selecting "Save to" location each an every time we take photos, we should be able to select the location first, just like selecting 'Document','Photo' or 'White board'. And then we can keep taking photos with out pausing to select save location.
    UI should be like,
    Camera (take photo)» Crop(make changes and save button)» Camera

    On the first screen itself we should be able to set scanning document type and storage location.

  14. pdf or jpg fefaults

    Allow each scan type to be set to a default file type (pdf or jpg etc), which can be altered by user in settings. For example I want my 'documents' to save as pdf automatically, and my 'photos' to save as jpg. Another user might want to set different defaults in settings.

  18. Normalize the white balance to get decent white in any lighting condition

    Usually the background of documents is white, and lighting conditions indoors using tungsten lighting. Can officelens use a default to correct the white balance to to make all images taken have the same white as background colour?
