Office Lens trims, enhances and makes pictures of whiteboards and docs readable, and saves them to OneNote. You can use Office Lens to convert images to Word and PowerPoint files too. 
Office Lens is like having a scanner in your pocket. Like magic, it will digitalize 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! 
What's new:
- Images are processed faster, especially on budget devices.
- 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 text will be automatically recognized (using OCR) so you can search for words in images and 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 are saved to your camera roll and also directly into OneNote, so you can see the images across all your devices.
- Choose to convert images to Word (.docx) or PowerPoint (.pptx) files that are automatically saved to OneDrive. 
Office Lens requires logging in with your Microsoft Account.
Your Microsoft Account must be same as the one registered on your device.

    Very clever... Conversion to word/note seems slow.. All I want to is save it as a photo??

    Pdf output would be nice

    Simple and easy to use, replaces the need for a scanner, and the ability to save as word doc is brilliant.

    Strange that I have been downloading all these other similar apps and getting frustrated with them and never bothered to really try this one. Well I did and hands down it's the best.

    Super useful!
  • by Sandu 19/11/2014
    Good app. One problem - there should be an option "to or not to" save the picture in OneNote.
