For certain good reasons, Office Lens has become one of the Top 5 iPhone apps. The app gained popularity from Windows phones and now it features in iPhone and Android as well. The free app helps scanning documents, photos, and even whiteboards, easy.
The Office Lens allows you to trim, enhance and make pictures of documents and whiteboards readable. Along with this, it can convert images to Word and PowerPoint files that can be edited. It works like a magic pocket scanner as it digitalizes notes on blackboards as well as whiteboards.
One can easily find important documents, receipts, stray sticky notes or business cards. In addition to this, you can sketch ideas, and snap a picture for later.
This new app is built as a feature of Microsoft Office OneNote and to have OneNote you need to have office setup which you can easily get from office.com/setup or www.office.com/setup
Few reasons why people love Office Lens-
Works like a pro: Makes scanning as easy as taking a picture. Lens finds the edges of the scanned documents and automatically crops the unwanted space. If you do not want it to crop for you, you can do it for yourself. With Document mode, Office Lens trims and colors images perfectly. The scanned copy can be saved and shared in multiple places and in multiple formats.
Share with multiple programs: Another reason for its popularity is its ability to share and save our scanned documents with programs that we are already using like OneNote, OneDrive, MS Word, PowerPoint and mail. It serves as a great help for saving meeting notes.
With lens you can scan the notes and points that are discussed during a meeting or lecture and access them anywhere, export them directly to OneNote, share them through email or any other media. Business Card mode allows you to extract contact information and save it into your address book and OneNote.
Reduces the need of a physical scanner in case you want to scan fewer documents: Though, Office lens is not going to replace your scanning machine if the large part of your work requires scanning a lot of documents, it definitely helps when you want to scan fewer documents. Choose to convert images to Word (.docx), PowerPoint (.pptx), or PDF (.pdf) files that are automatically saved to OneDrive.
The people from every corner of the world love this app because it is something that is making their work day more productive and easy. Don’t waste another second looking for another scanning app as Office Lens has got you covered.
