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.



  • Cannot find exported photo

    By #MacJim!
    Weird. After I choose to export my photo to my photo library I cannot find it in the photos app. What’s going on?
  • Terrible app

    By Nexus jziabshsjbsjs
    Used to be awesome, I used to take pictures of my receipt after business trips. Now it only highlights part of the receipt and won’t let me change it, time to delete and use the camera app
  • Crashes on startup

    By TallReview
    I would give this a much higher rating based on using it over the past couple of years, if it wasn’t crashing when I start it Additional info: iPhone X, iOS 12.2 Still crashes on startup (5/9/2019). Note that when I go into App Switcher, I see the program there, but can’t maximize it
  • Dysfunctional

    By o l i v e
    I used to find this app useful, but it has stopped working entirely for me. When I try to convert an image to a word doc, it asks me to log in -> I put in my email and password -> I get sent back to the page asking what I’d like to convert my photo into. I select Word -> It asks me to log in. I’m stuck in this impossible loop because the app doesn’t allow me to do something as simple as log in. I tried making a new account and couldn’t log into that one either. I tried going into my settings, where there is different log in option, and that one didn’t work either. Please fix your most basic function.
  • What about the icon?

    By KrunchDown
    Works fine, but why did it get an update today without a new icon to make it consistent with the rest of the office apps?
  • A nice App, but can do better

    By 墨色之银
    Such as a icon like the NEW STYLE of OFFICE 365
  • Good enough for a free app

    By EmmaraldApple
    Considering its free it works well enough. However, apps like Scanner Pro are just better in every way. Microsoft should be setting the benchmark considering the size of the company.
  • I need clear all files button

    By freewill774784
    I need clear all files button, really need! Dislike to delete files one by one!
  • Crashes everytime

    By 0323748
    I really like Office Lens when it worked. But after a recent update it crashes everytime I launch the app.
  • OCR

    We need OCR
