New Office Lens app is a portable OneNote scanner

The new Office Lens app gives you a scanner in your pocket (or purse), making it easy to preserve meeting notes, handwritten to-do lists, sticky notes, business cards and receipts. The free Microsoft app uses the Windows Phone camera to capture and enhance pictures, then automatically syncs them to OneNote so you can get to them from any device.

If your photos include text, you can search for words or edit, copy and paste selected passages using optical character recognition (OCR). The app also cleans up the imperfections of what you snap. In Whiteboard mode, Office Lens trims and cleans up glares and shadows. In Document mode, Office Lens trims and colors them perfectly.

Office Lens requires logging in with your Microsoft Account, which must be the same as the one registered on your device.

Install Office Lens from the Windows Phone Store and read more about the app on Office Blogs.
