Works for me but could be better

It works for me but I have a few suggestions.

There should be more Send To or sharing options. Send to email whould be great. I often scan signed documents and would like to able easily send them back rather than saving to drive, attaching to email and deleting document. Share via iMessage would be great too. Why limit us to saving to disk?

I wonder who would print a document they just scanned. It would so much easier to just copy it.

Recommend adding button to start a new scan session. Would be easier than using the drop down menus.

Straighten option would be great. Why can’t printers reliabily scan documents without skewing them?


I scan as much as I print. Correction: I WOULD scan as much as i print, but I do not have a scanner: I have a printer that CLAIMS to be a scanner. It worked, fitfully, and after much fiddling, before. Now, it is invisible to the brand new update (this update above).
Again, printer works fine….. if one is able to look past that its default setting is COLOR, and, sometimes, 2-sided.
Am tempted to donate it to someone who needs only a printer — but why would I visit the headaches this machine has caused on a friend?!?

Works fine for me on High Sierra

Installed it. It found my OJ4650 right away, and worked as advertised.
Very convenient. Bundled pages together in one document.
Would be nice if it would also give you info on printer, such as ink levels…. making it look more like iOS version would be good!
