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.



  • 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?

    By mattdmrc
    App cannot even run for a minute. It’s keep crashing while you’re trying to take a picture or upload it. IOS 12.3.1. iPhone XS Max 256GB. Used with office 365 subscription. It takes 1 second to crash right after the application is launched.
  • Can’t save to Sharepoint. Can’t control file size

    By ebuhrendorf

  • Text box option disappearing

    By Mekaneck84
    This app used to be fine for my use case, which is taking pictures, annotating them, and then saving them directly to OneDrive. However, recently the app has eliminated the option to add a text box to an image. Now, the only option to mark up an image is the freehand pencil. Not great when trying to annotate my pictures. Which I do for literally every picture I take for my job. Now I have to find a new (not business approved) app and then transfer the pictures to OneDrive later. Thanks Microsoft.
  • No se puede escribir en la diapositiva como antes

    By Noelia Fraser
    Por qué motivo ahora no figura la opción de agregar un texto sobre la diapositiva? A mi me servía para captar la imagen y poder hacer reseñas sobre la misma en clases? Se puede volver a escribir?
  • Where did the text option go

    By localemployee
    Good morning Our corporation was using this app for in the field inspections with the ability to use the text option to add critical details to the photos or pdf creations. Now that the feature is gone the app is not useful as it is. Can we please have the feature text added back apart of the app and it will get 5 stars from me. Christian
  • Please bring back an old feature!

    By ,,,,,,,,.......Jack
    Please bring back the ability to change filter type after the picture is taken. It was mysteriously removed after an update a while ago. Edit: The feature is still not present. I am using a 9.7” iPad Pro, iOS 12.3.1, running OfficeLens v. 2.25.
  • Unusable now...

    By quanterous
    Loved this app, but now when I open the app it asks which Microsoft account I want to use and upon selection the app crashes. Can’t reset the app either.
  • Please change the app icon

    By Katsnelson
    The icon of this office app looks different from other office apps. Please design a new icon.
  • Was Great... Once

    By Left Angle
    Maybe it’s because my ancient 3 year old iPhone SE updates are interfering; maybe it’s because Microsoft’s updates are making bad things happen, but this once perfect app is no longer so wonderful. The orange outline disappears the moment the shutter button is pressed and the result is haphazard at best. The image captured may be what the entire viewfinder was showing, a portion of what was outlined the split second before the shot was taken or if you’re lucky, you got what you expected. It now takes at least 3 or 4 tries to make a usable image and more than once, I’ve discovered too late that an image I thought had covered the entire document was in fact, cut off at some random line of text. Time for me to start seeking another app. 2 stars because it kinda works... if you’re patient, willing to make several attempts and stay aware.
