  1. 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.

  5. Remove page limit

    You can currently only append 10 images to each other in Lens. Please remove this limit. This would be good when you're trying to make PDFs.

    “the user credentials are needed to obtain access token.Please call the non-silent acquireTokenWithResource methods.” Why do I get this message every time I try to use the app? It’s been happening since the last update.

  15. 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.

  17. Choose one note location

    I very much would like to choose where my picture goes in OneNote it's annoying having to constantly move my data back and forth in my notebooks trying to keep them organised and the quick notes section clean

  20. 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!
