Have you found yourself needing a scanner where none was present? Maybe you have to scan in your receipts for expense reports, but you’re always losing one somehow rendering parts of it unreadable. Maybe you’d like a copy of the notes left on the whiteboard from the meeting you’ve just attended and you don’t have paper or enough time to jot them all down. Perhaps you find it a hassle having to type all those details from business cards you receive into your contacts file.
Sound like a problem you’ve had? Have a smart phone in your pocket? Then let me introduce you to Microsoft’s Office Lens.
With this free app, you can snap a picture of those receipts, business cards, documents, white boards and flip boards and convert them into editable PDFs, Word documents, or PowerPoint files that can be saved on your device or directly into OneNote or OneDrive. Office Lens will even help clean those images up for you to make them easier to read!
