Good OCR, but needs feature improvements

Just tried this app out scanning a couple older printed articles I wanted to digitally store. The OCR functionality worked very well and pretty simply. So far I haven't found any errors with it. Great job! But I couldn't give this app more than five stars, because I was disappointed with the lack of these features...
1-Easily adding multiple pages into one PDF file.
2-Simpler way to rename a file.
3-Would like to be able to email multiple scans at a time.
4-Would like to be able to organize my scans into folders.
Add these features and you'll have a 5 star app! Thank you

Best OCR app

I don't use the scanning feature because I tweak my document images on other apps but this is the most accurate OCR recognition app I've tried. It exports in every way I'll ever need and it will even remove line breaks if you want. It also lets you edit and rename after processing and keeps the file in its library. It's one of my favorite apps.

Poor formatting

OCR was pretty good based on two page document that was a list of names and phone numbers, Page 1 look good but page 1 came out as one column. All of the last names, followed by first names followed by phone numbers. I tried many croppings and scans and could not fix it.
