The best app

This app is the best, it crops all the photos you capture in a very nice manner itself. It doesn’t just crop with straight borders, it is borders can be of any angle. You get to edit that after the app has done it fully according to it. I never had an issue with this app. Personally, this the best app to submit school work and documents. You can submit it in any format. Be it a pdf or from the device’s storage. There is a bunch of options in this app which are totally free and easy to use. Personally, this is a very good app.

Please let me switch to document from business card without having to discard all media

The new update isn’t very well thought out. It’s introduced a new “actions” option between document and business card. For some reason, whenever I open the app, it’s in business card mode. I don’t notice, and click pictures of all my content. Then when I go to save it as a pdf file, I don’t see that option because- surprise, surprise! It’s been in business card mode this whole time. Okay, no issues, let me just change it to document mode. Wait, why is it not letting me switch modes without DISCARDING ALL MY MEDIA? BECAUSE there’s a brand new shiny “actions” mode in between. Please just move this actions button somewhere else Please Please For The Love Of God Make It Go Away Or Fix It Some Other Way

The storage given is the differentiating factor for Lens.

I consider both Adobe Scan and Microsoft Lens to be the same for myself.

But at the same time, Adobe Scan gives only 2 GB of free storage, while Lens is free to use the free 5 GB you get with your outlook account with OneDrive. And if need be, OneDrige is actually really affordable than Adobe Scan.

I am a student, I need to do the scanning of books heavily. The files are big in size. Lens is the only one for me. As 2 GB can get filled up like that.
