Microsoft Released a New App Called “Office Lens”

Microsoft released a portable scanner for mobile devices called “Office Lens” and it is the one of Microsoft’s most impressive Office apps is available on the Google Play Store and iOS.

Office Lens trims, enhances, and makes pictures of whiteboards and docs readable. You can use Office Lens to convert images to PDF, Word and PowerPoint files, and you can even save images to OneNote or OneDrive.

The app lets users take a photo of “any rectangular media” and then converts it into an easily shareable, searchable document, in Word, PowerPoint, or PDF – similar to what other scanning apps already offer, although Microsoft includes tighter integration with Office, and is making the app available for free.
