I concur with those of the opinion that the Windows app is nowhere near as useful as the Android app. Not only could I not get the picture to focus, but there was no option to export the scan as a PDF. Quite disappointing. Deleted it immediately.

Was hoping when I bought the app for my Surface 2 that it would have the same functions as my iPhone 6. I was wrong. If I could rate ZERO Stars, then I would. I use the app on my phone everyday for work

However, if you go their website, it claims to have seemly integration to MS OneNote. This is a complete exaggeration, or lie, or something. It seems like they put some guy who works for Microsoft in a chair and paid him 1k, to say a few words about how it synchronizes with one note. This may be the case, but only on Apple devices, iPhone and So on. Look, grow some, and speak the truth man, this is offered on the MS store, why would you claim to sync to OneNote, where the caveat is that you need an apple device? You should be fired, and your incumbent post and pay should be given to a college intern, along with your severance package. Is the code for synchronizing to hard for you bottle suckers to write? Give me my engineering degree already, and I'll show you how to write the code on C++, this is a scam. That's[

It's probably not the app's fault, but description should warn potential users that it won't work with 1.3 megapixel cameras like the one in the Surface Pro 2. That warning could have saved me a lot of time.

It works well at handling perspective adjustments but it isn't as robust as the iOS or Android versions.

It does what is supposed to but you cannot even grab your pictures after editing them and save them onto a device or upload to Instagram or Facebook it needs an update this feels like a forked version compared to apple and android.

I use this every day on android this a is just basic.... no delete no easy to email scanned stuff took me a little bit to figure it out you have to share it it has a long way before I will pay for this app I am glad they let me try it for free first

Have no idea how to get this to work with my XPS12. I cant configure the camera so there is no way to actually take a scan of the document unless I hold it in front of the screen

The only feature I am able to use is the capture. I cant edit or export docs. If I had known this, I wouldn't have purchased the app. Complete waste of money for Surface users.
