Office Lens trims, enhances and makes pictures of whiteboards and documents readable. Office Lens can convert images to editable Word and PowerPoint files too. Office Lens is like having a scanner in your pocket. Like magic, it will digitize 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! Scenarios: - 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 and handwritten text will be automatically recognized (using OCR), so you can search for words in images and then copy and edit them. Features: - With Whiteboard mode, Office Lens trims and cleans up glare and shadows. - With Document mode, Office Lens trims and colors images perfectly. - Pictures can be saved to OneNote, OneDrive or other cloud storage. - Business Card mode can extract contact information and save it into your address book and OneNote. This feature works best with the following business cards: English, German, Spanish and Simplified Chinese. Support for more languages is coming soon. - Choose to convert images to Word (.docx), PowerPoint (.pptx) or PDF (.pdf) files that are automatically saved to OneDrive.



  • Won’t log into my office 365 account

    By wsmorg25
    It redirects to the page and I sign in but the account doesn’t show up
  • Was a favorite app...

    By NoRadioForMe
    After being a user and fan of the app for years, the app recently began popping up a selection window for my current account and an old account that hasn’t been active in over a year and will not let me proceed unless I select one. Upon selection of either, the app crashes. Reinstall did not help. HELP!
  • Great for capturing

    By drewz$
    App works seamlessly. For a free app it’s good and gets job done. Integration with other apps also good.

  • Ap stopped working

    By bonstrat
    This used to be such a great app for catching meeting presentations and saving printed documents and even pictures. It simply stopped working. Photo files all show up as deleted. In fact I wasted several hours assuming I was saving a project that I now have to do over on some other ap. Using iPhone 10 IOS 12.3.1
  • Keeps crashing

    By nik.cys
    I was a fan of office lens. Helped me capture all my notes and whiteboarding discussions effectively. Moved to iOS and app keeps crashing over and over.
  • Love this app - but....

    By gr8.m9d
    Great app, simply works... If the developers are listening, here is my wish list to move this app from 4 stars to 5 : (1)IOS Camera integration (2) Output (file type) options. Not everything is compatable with PDF. If I want JPG I have to shoot whiteboard mode, but then it seams to loose formate sizing (letter, legal, tabloid) (3) watermarks. Would love to be able to watermark it as a copy and maybe ad my logo.
  • a small bug

    By chisiyuan
    works fine. But when save as image to nextcloud, the filename is with colon, which is not supported in Windows. As a result, the file cannot be syncd to my laptop. Hope the default filename can be changed.
  • They made it worse

    By Nj2348
    This was, even a few weeks ago, a reasonably good app. I think it was recently updated a couple times, and now it is garbage. It is crashing constantly. It’s also struggling to identify pages (I think it used to be better at this). I hope they fix it, but until then it’s pretty awful.
  • Horrible

    By SMXSteve
    Must be Microsoft people who like it but this is horrible. I copied a few pages with my iPhone, selected word doc, had to create a login then it said done. Where the hell is it?
