Microsoft’s Lens app that converts paper files into editable documents comes to iOS and Android
“paper” lying around your desk?
If you’re an an iPhone or Android user, Microsoft’s new Office Lens app will have you covered. If you’re not familiar with theWindows Phone version released almost a year ago, Office Lens basically turns your phone into a scanner.
It’s not just simple JPEGs though; Lens uses optical character recognition (OCR) to convert a document’s text into full-fledged Word, PowerPoint and PDF files, complete with editable text, tables and images.
It can also capture business cards to generate contacts from them, or help you insert plain old images into OneNote or OneDrive.
OneNote for iPhone is available today from theApp Store. OneNote for Android is still a preview, but you can sign up to try it out by joining the Office Lens for Android Previewcommunity, then selecting “Become a Tester” from the About section.
