Office Lens trims, enhances and makes pictures of whiteboards and documents readable. Office Lens can convert images to editable Word and PowerPoint files too. Office Lens is like having a scanner in your pocket. Like magic, it will digitize notes on whiteboards or blackboards. Always find important documents or business cards. Sketch your ideas and snap a picture for later. Don't lose receipts or stray sticky notes again! Scenarios: - Capture and crop a picture of a whiteboard or blackboard and share your meeting notes with co-workers. - Make digital copies of your printed documents, business cards or posters and trim them precisely. - Printed and handwritten text will be automatically recognized (using OCR), so you can search for words in images and then copy and edit them. Features: - With Whiteboard mode, Office Lens trims and cleans up glare and shadows. - With Document mode, Office Lens trims and colors images perfectly. - Pictures can be saved to OneNote, OneDrive or other cloud storage. - Business Card mode can extract contact information and save it into your address book and OneNote. This feature works best with the following business cards: English, German, Spanish and Simplified Chinese. Support for more languages is coming soon. - Choose to convert images to Word (.docx), PowerPoint (.pptx) or PDF (.pdf) files that are automatically saved to OneDrive.

    From the first item I scanned, I knew this would be a game changer for me. I have been using this for a couple years now and never had an issue.

  • Current version is broken

    By NeslyQuik
    Most recent version of the app (since feb 28 2020) is completely broken and crashes upon opening. Attempted reinstalling, clearing cache, all to no avail
  • Used to be awesome

    Not anymore after iOS 13 update and Microsoft hasn’t made the changes necessary to retain the expected UX. 1. Something about views displaying modally is causing problems. Now after I email a document, the last captured document is still shown on screen. Closing and opening the app doesn’t clear it. Hitting done again crashes the app. 2. Half of the time when I try to manually crop the image, the user defined edges just wouldn’t save.
  • Scans Always Angled

    By OffbeatChip9
    Every scan I take shows up perfect in the preview. Then when I look at the exported pdf it shows up skewed to the side and cut off. Same pages every time out of the 7 one or two will be messed up. Getting sick of it.
  • Won’t load to one drive

    When I scan from office lens, I can no longer load to one drive. I get message unable to upload. Really? Typical Microsoft.
  • NOT As Clean!!!

    By HirsuteJim
    With the latest update, I am now seeing a row of pictures of all my previous scans … IN THE MIDDLE OF DISPLAY, WHILE TRYING TO TAKE A NEW SCAN⁉️⁉️⁉️ WHY???? This new “feature”… ⦁ Is VERY Distracting ⦁ BLOCKS the view of my current subject ⦁ Is showing SENSITIVE Client Info to my current client ⦁ SERVES NO PURPOSE‼️ PLEASE allow one to TURN OFF this display row!!! My Previous Review Title: Clean & Simple My Previous Review: Does it's single task very well.
  • Fantastic scanning capabilities

    By MarkInPA
    I’ve tried a lot of different ones.... but this one is #1 by far. You can scan a whiteboard, document, screen at almost any angle and it corrects it. Plus the text in the scan is OCR and searchable. Integration with OneNote makes it a champ. I rarely rate anything 5 star. This one clearly deserves it.
