This is exactly the problem I was having, although have not found the need to reinstall the app. The problem comes and goes intermittently. I have learnt the hard way not to shred documents immediately after scanning . BTW, a good feature from my perspective would be the ability to restore deleted items (sort of like a trash bin).
A few months ago, I posted in this forum, indicating how much I liked Scannable, but suggesting a few features that would make my work with scannable even more productive. To date, this post has not got any response. Regardless, I have recently begun to rethink my opinion of Scannable. Working with it has become a frustrating exercise. Scanning is fine, but when I try to upload to Evernote, more often than not, the process fails. The typical behaviour is that the application is stuck at the share screen. Evidently, its doing something in the background, but there is no visual indication of this. I would expect some UI indication that the scan is being uploaded. Then, after a while (sometimes a minute), I will get a message that the process timed out at the Evernote was unable to upload the scan. Then, even more frustratingly, when I then reshare the scan, I will get a message indicating that the file already exists on Evernote. I have had ended up with duplicates, as well as quite a few lost scans. Clearly, the integration between Scannable and Evernote is not as seamless as it should be, which is surprising considering both are owned by the same company. Please fix this, or I will start looking for alternatives.
I am absolutely loving Scannable. I use it to scan my credit card receipts and it makes my life so much easier. Here are a couple of improvements for suggestions : 1. I tend to scan receipts in batches. This is easier than starting a new scan session for each receipt. However, I would like each receipt to end up in its own Evernote note, and currently the app combines all scans into a single note. I would like a 'split scans into separate notes' configuration option. 2. I would like a way to cancel the automatic rotation. I scan a lot of receipts in Hebrew, and they all end up being rotated upside down (I assume because the amounts are on the wrong side. I then have to manually rotate them back, which is pain. 3. The app workflow is somewhat confusing. In some case, you end up not being sure if a specific scan has already been uploaded, and then you have to delete it manually to start a new session.
