Editors’ Notes

Brainstorm meetings can often be mayhem, but the notes don’t have to be. Along with capturing regular ol’ documents, this scanning app erases glare from shots of your meeting’s whiteboard. It also transforms your scans into editable Word and PowerPoint files. We see this mighty scanner tidying up other parts of our lives too—as an archival tool for jumbled receipts, handwritten recipes and our kids’ doodles.

More flash control please

It’s so annoying when you set the flash to aways light up, open the captured photos and when you go back scanning it resets to automatic. This should be changed so that it stays on the set mode, or there should be an option at least to start in the desired mode: always on, always off too, not just automatic.

App is crashing from PDF exports! Fix needed!

I use this app daily, really like the way it’s designed, but from the last update I’m not able to export scans to pdf. App crashes every time I want to export on the 13 Pro Max.
