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!

- 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.

- 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.

Gute Lösung für unterwegs

Ich benutze die App regelmäßig zum Einscannen von einzelnen Seiten. Die Erkennung funktioniert mit meinen iPhone 11 und iPad Pro 11 zuverlässig. Mit Hilfe der Filteroptionen (S/W, Farbe, usw.) kann kann ich direkt auf dem Gerät ein brauchbares Ergebnis bekommen. Die Export-Formate PDF und als Bild reichen mir persönlich.

Warum nur 4 Sterne? Die App ist noch immer nicht an das Displayformat des iPad Pro 11 von 2018 angepasst. Das ist zwar nicht tragisch, aber von einer Firma wie Microsoft kann man das nach über einem Jahr am Markt erwarten.

Die Digitalisierung kann kommen

Unglaublich praktisch um Dokumente und Fotos schnell und einfach zu digitalisieren, um sie z.B. am Rechner in intelligenter Ordnerstruktur zu archivieren.

Schnell, intuitiv

So sollten alle Apps sein!
