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.

  • Terrible update. Don’t upgrade!

    By Former Lobster Mobster
    This used to an incredible app. The latest update removed half the filters including the very useful Black & White 2. This filter was crucial for scanning thin pages with text on both sides like an encyclopedia or bible. That filter cranked up the contrast and brightness to remove the noise of the text on the back of the page. Now, no matter which of the few remaining filters you use, Office Lens still picks up noise. If it doesn’t try to OCR an odd letter, then it inserts it as an image. The alternative is take photos manually, edit them individually, and then import them, but this triples the amount of time. So what’s the point of the app?
  • Awesome App and very simple UI - Fast and Ultra Functional

    Fast and Ultra functional App. Great job to the team at Microsoft
  • Recent Update ruined the app

    By windogexp
    The recent update completely overhauled the app and ruined it. I loved Office Lens since it was simple, reliable, and fast. With this new update, I need to delete old scans before starting a new one, and accessing filters is more difficult and tedious. It’s also more difficult to rotate and mark-up, and wastes a lot of time. I need the scans to be fast since I’m a college student and used this app to scan times exams. Guess I won’t be using it anymore :/
  • Glitches Galore

    By HGH2015
    This is just way too glitchy. It asked for my user name and password a dozen times whenever I took a document to scan into Word. It felt like I was being tortured. I could have just typed the information in the time it took to try and scan it.
  • Get Android

    By Gldwgzylwicz
    This app worked flawlessly on Android. Like a few of my goto apps, iOS versions get buggy. Office Lens images in iOS are lost when saved. It doesn’t matter which album you designate for saving - they are gone.
  • If it’s not perfect then it’s one star

    By Farkyfark
    This is a service that either works or doesn’t. You can’t have a transcription app that skips some info once in a while. It doesn’t transcribe some images even when the images are perfect, which means it’s only worth one or no stars.
  • Crashes when saving!

  • Recent update ruined this app for me

    By Dale Yeah 746289201537
    Whatever big update was done recently ruined this app. It used to be great. I have to manually delete each scan when I wan to start a new one. And now the app looks like it was meant for an old phone on my new iPhone. Big black space all all sides the the screen.
  • Was great

    By Mccutchphil
    This was a great app before the most recent update. Took it from being simple and reliable to being more complicated and less reliable. Hope they make it more simple and reliable with the next update. People do not need more features, they need reliability and simplicity.
