What's Cool in Tech: Office Lens

Have you ever wanted to convert your notes or brainstorming ideas from a whiteboard or blackboard and save them to your phone?  Well, Office Lens via Windows allows you to do just that!

Office Lens trims, enhances and makes pictures of whiteboards and docs readable, and saves them to OneNote. You can use Office Lens to convert images to PDF, Word and PowerPoint files too. Office Lens is like having a scanner in your pocket. Like magic, it will digitalize notes on whiteboards or blackboards.

Additionally you can:

  • Clean up any glares and shadows from the original image
  • Have the option of saving to PDF, Word, or PowerPoint
  • In Business Card Mode, extract information from business cards you've snapped a photo of
The app is free to download on Windows Phones 8 and 8.1, with a Microsoft Account.
