I have found that the key is holding the phone steady while you take the 
picture.  Here's what I do:
I place my elbow on a table or desktop 
and I'm balancing the phone on my thumb supporting it with my fingers.  The 
camera is facing down toward the page I want to scan.  I use my other hand to 
position the page so that the app says something like:  up up right or 
directions like that.  Then I take picture and hope it works.  It takes some 
practice It helps to line the page up with the edge of the phone where the 
camera is.
