Had used for years. Now Dark Programming App. MS auto logged me in from MS app that I recently "only" added a microsoft email to. Then, instead of allowing saving to my phone as a PDF like usual, you tried to upload the scanned document to the froze/deleted OneDrive associated with the account. Won't allow me to sign out until I restart the app & "update" my privacy settings to send you my data. Then you want me to pay you for OneDrive. Lastly, won't save to the phone as a single multipage PDF.

Update 2: Stopped working again. Update: the issue has finally been fixed, so I'm happy to change my review. Used to be great, but now it keeps giving an error anytime you try to extract text from a document or image. Reached out to the support team, but they're completely unresponsive. Too bad.
