  1. Its too slow

    If the processing of images could be bit faster, it would be a great help. Manually saving the pictures is too slow process. Though office lens is a very neatly designed app, it needs improvement over saving feature. If we can retouch photos from gallery, it would be a great help.

    Maybe add a book scan mode with 6 vertices for cropping instead of just 4, when scanning two pages at once

  8. Ability to scan multiple pages/documents with an auto shot functionality and with built-in OCR

    Ability to scan multiple pages/documents with an auto shot functionality, no need to touch a button. It is also an advantage if it has a built in OCR (Optical character recognition) which recognizes text. You may also include the ability to import files from the gallery.

  9. On Android, list office lens as a camera available to other apps.

    Android needs a device wide camera scanner. Make Office Lens indispensable by making it available to all Android apps which call for a camera app. That would keep MS apps on all my Android devices.

  12. Multiple pages in file

    As according to the request of an anonymous user , the office lens team has done improvements to support multiple page file feature but it is only available in Windows phone.
    This feature has to be brought in android phone so that more users can have better experience with office lens.
    Hope you look into the matter and come to a best suited solution.

  19. Add local storage for all file types after processing.

    Save as image is the only option that saves local. All other options save to cloud. Provide local storage capabilities for all save as file types.

  20. Better focus.

    Despite high resolution the app doesn't seem to focus for making crisp text.
