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.



  • Amazing Photo App.

    By StealthMama
    USED TO BE 5 STARS AND: Takes photos on angles or of wrinkled paper and straightens out the pic in easy to read flat notes. NOW 1 STAR AND: Does not straighten, flatten etc. I worked with it for an hour today. And got ZERO usable pages.
  • Great, but serious obstacles...

    By Fatheroftheyear
    This app was a lifesaver for expense receipts when I first started using it a couple years ago. I still use it, but I have 2 major complaints: 1) Using it on an iPhone, the app does not stay logged into my Microsoft account, so almost every time I scan something, I have to retype my password to send to OneNote or OneDrive 2) Saving as PDF or to files is not easily accessible The above to problems make me look for a new app every month or so, but it still solves my needs better than others. I love how easily I captures docs for work and home. I just get annoyed at the extra steps I need to take because they can’t solve the login issues
  • Save as PDF is now Broken

    By Dano the Mano
    I saw another reviewer post this and I am here to confirm. I use the Save as PDF feature to my work drive account. Last night I tried uploading 3 different PDF receipts and it was not saving the first receipt and just duplicating that receipt over and over when I tried submitting the others. This is a big issue and that is the sole reason of why/how I use the app. Please help sort this out. It was working FLAWLESSLY before the update.
  • Save as PDF has been broken for some time with O365

    By Muishka
    I love this app...when it works. It hasn’t been working lately, at all. I need to have PDFs of images uploaded directly to my work OneDrive and I am unable to do so. With the latest update (as of 11/27/18) I can’t even get the app to do normal things - the app keeps freezing, and I am still unable to upload to my work OneDrive. Please, please, fix this app. It has such potential but it keeps breaking with every new feature, it seems. I love the direct integration possibilities.
  • By far the best, quickest scan app out there.

    And I’ve tried many!
  • Good start, but middle of the pack

    By Tap Fan 99
    The integration into Microsoft family is great. But he app is average at best. Is crashes with some regularity. Documents get stuck unable to upload, and when the retry also fails, then just sit there in my way to delete or retry upload. Lacks features to edit docs, add pages, or even save documents to be worked on later. It is ok overall, but needs to catch up to the other much more complete scanner apps available for iOS.
  • Scans half pages and when click discard ‘Discard All’ is not the best option

    By SKGorla
    Scans files in half page, and when scanning a series of documents when you want to discard a page it shows Discard All option , so you have to start over. Pathetic !!!
  • Add integration for Outlook

    By jwalkingtravels
    Please please please. It would be really great if the business card scanner could automatically add contacts to Outlook without having to manually go thru OneNote and one at a time open a vCard and add it to Outlook. So many extra steps! Not helpful for what I was hoping to use this app for... huge stack of business cards to scan and import.
  • UI not match iPhone XR and iPhone XS Max

    By 撒石
    Need update for UI problem.
  • Great, just needs an update for notch phones

    By indeed, it is so
    Updated review: Love this app and the various UI changes it has undergone. However i just upgraded to an iPhone XR and couldn't find the edit points button, until I realized it was under the notch. Please fix this and it will again be magical. Original review: This app is just incredible. It saves me so much time, and it never fails. I have introduced this app to most of my co-workers (the ones I like, anyway) and they all love it too!
