Microsoft has brought another amazing app, known as Office Lens, on iOS and Android yesterday. It is a document scanning app, which has been catering to Windows Phone since a year, but now it is available for iOS and Android as well. Office Lens is yet another Microsoft application, which has come to other operating systems, following the previously available apps such as Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Outlook apps.
Now, talking about the Office Lens, it is an app that enables the users to capture and crop photos of work (such as documents, sketches etc.) and share with others. The OCR text recognition function also lets users search for words and phrases within the photos and with the app users can also create digital copies of the documents and business cards.
Below, we have listed few main features of the app as stated on its App Store page:
- Pictures can be saved to OneNote, OneDrive, or your preferred cloud storage.
- Document mode, Office Lens trims and colors images perfectly.
- Whiteboard mode, Office Lens trims and cleans up glare and shadows.
- Convert images to Word (.docx), PowerPoint (.pptx), or PDF (.pdf) files that are automatically saved to OneDrive.
