I've purchased this app and I really like it. It does exactly what it says. I'm pretty much gone paperless as far as receipts go. Being able to do multiple pages and crop images as a huge plus for me.

I would buy again, but I would recommend the following:
- be able to create folders and organize your scans.
- be able to sync with skydrive. I don't think there is an official API for this but there may be some possibilities here:

I also purchased it on its early days. Today it has improved a lot. The image optimization feature added recently just makes it perfect

nice app, purchased on day-1. Glad to see it's being updated/improved. One of the "must have" apps for any device.
