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:
- Your pictures can be converted to Word or PowerPoint files and saved to OneDrive.
- For Word files, the document layout is preserved and the text in your picture is converted into editable text. 
- For PowerPoint files, handwritten strokes are transformed into drawing objects that can be recolored and edited. You can also remove the background of drawings. 
- 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.
- Skip the photo copier and take pictures of menus, shopping lists, or children's sketches so you never have to worry about forgetting or misplacing 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.

    Awesome app

    This app is one of the best regions to own a Windows phone. It died a hectic job of asking business cards to OneNote and then OCR'ing them for me. The only things I'm missing are a direct path to Outlook and the ability to directly help define the area that it should be scanning.

    Great app! I would love the ability to choose my own page and it seems that their is a limit on how many notebooks it can see when I chose where to save. I have 27 and guess its set to about 20.

    Really like this app and they seem to add features (like ability to edit suggests note name) regularly. If that continues I think it will be an indispensable business tool.

    Great for keeping track of receipts for business expenses.

    Cannot save more than 5 files at a time. We have to connect the network.

    Works as advertised. Easy to capture images - good auto fix process.

    This is a great app. It is going to put my scanner out of business. Great days collection tool.
