Office Lens trims, enhances and makes pictures of whiteboards and docs readable, and saves them to OneNote.
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:
- Improved algorithm generates cleaner document images.
- Now you can select the OneNote location where a new page is created.
- Bug fixes: Now Office Lens is more stable.
- 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 in OneNote on your computer.
- 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.
Office Lens requires logging in with your Microsoft Account.
Your Microsoft Account must be same as the one registered on your device.

    Extremely handy! It took the usability of OneNote from useful to "what would I do without it". Auto document image clipping and whiteboard retouching is just an added bonus. You need this!

    Great app, just a recommendation, I want to replace the camera app in OneNote, so when you push the camera button on OneNote they should open the office lens app that's would be great feature

    The problem is when I import pictures, I can not select more than one. It takes me a lot of time to important many pictures. In addition, unable to share more than one by apps, I have to choose them one by one.
