Expensify: I am loving using your app and only wish I could go back in time and start using it five years ago.

An idea to make it even more convenient:

A widget for the home screen that opens the Expensify camera to take a picture of a receipt. It would be great to get a receipt and scan it in one click instead of having to open the app first. What do you think?

It's unlikely a full widget would be possible due to differences in Android and iOS systems. However, the solutions below detail how to snap a photo of your receipt on both Android and iOS without having to open the app. Cheers!
