Congratulations on launching the App. I should have returned my feedback earlier but I was expecting more functionality before it went live…
App version: 1.07
Phone: Google Pixel XL 1
Phone OS: Android 10
1) App opening
As mentioned elsewhere, the app is slow to start
2) Entering username & password
The on-screen keyboard covers the password field and the submit button so they cannot be seen at all and it is not possible to scroll the screen up.
Originally clicking the keyboard tick did not tab to the password field or submit button but now it does so this is fixed but probably not the best UI design for new users. ScreenShot-1
If you stay logged in then this is a minor issue anyway.
3) MFA Use
a) Google Authenicator is not password/fingerprint protected, and thus quite insecure, so I use Authy. It would be nice to be able to chose which authenicator to use
b) Tip: Using MFA on a phone is a pain of screen switching especially when racing against the 30 second timeout. I use the split screen functionality of Android to show both items. This works well with Authy so long as you have Authy in list mode at the top of the screen. ScreenShot-2
4) Scanning Functionality
This is the area that needs improvement
a) Lighting & Flash: It’s essential to get a good original photo ensuring the receipt is uniformly lit.
This should be rectified by using flash but forcing Android to use flash while in the app blacks out most of the image. Really not sure what’s going on here but other apps can use the flash without issue. QuickFile-App_Flash.pdf (219.9 KB)
b) Cropping & image enhancement: We don’t need the background area of the image, just the receipt. An auto-cropping function with final manual editing would be great. The ability to enhance the images (brighten, darken, sharpness, etc.) and turn into B&W would be a great addition to the app. The latter would also save QuickFile lots of storage space on S3
If you want an excellent example of what the scanning function should emulate then take a look at the CamScan app
5) Receipts Viewing
Largely works as expected and it’s great to be able to switch accounts quickly.
Again, when adding a new expense, there is limited scroll functionality but clicking the keyboard tick moves you on.
A great addition to the QuickFile offering. Personally, due to item 4, I’ll continue to use CamScan but would much rather use this app because multiple accounts on CamScam are a pain. I will however be using it for a minor account so I can monitor progress.
Many thanks for adding this app and ensuring the support from QF is second to none.
