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.

There are reviews about how good those scanners are but Lens is way better than all of those—combined. Convenient, automatically cropped scans and very easy to use. Just install and begin your scan. No login necessary.

Honest review

It would be better if there is no maximum number of images that can be combined as a pdf. For now, the maximum no. is 10 images. Also, I wonder why the texts move away from the original place to where I inserted it when I saved the photo? I hope it could be resolved. Another suggestion is that if you could have pen option which can let us choose the thickness of the ink. Thank you!

Excellent App

It's an excellent app especially in digitizing documents into pdf files. I also often use this app together with OneNote app in digitizing my notes specifically taking my drawings in my notebook and transferring it into OneNote.
