Office Lens was released in April of last year. It is a fantastic app that can turn your phone into a portable scanner!
The way that Office Lens works is very clever. You simply take images of your notes, a whiteboard, a receipt, business cards and more. These pictures can be taken at different angles, Office Lens will still be able to grab all the information. Office Lens recognises the corners of the image and will then enhance and crop the image, then it will clean it up. This enables you to read these notes with ease.
The really great thing about Office Lens, is that you can convert these physical documents into Word Documents, PowerPoint Presentations and PDF’s! So you are able to continuously work on these scans. You can even upload your scans to OneNote or OneDrive. If you scan a business card the Optical Character Recognition (OCR) will create a contact in your phone and will automatically fill out the name, number, email address and address fields.
Customers love this app with 5* reviews on the app store!
