There are many great document-scanning apps but Microsoft’s Office Lens has some unique features that make it a valuable tool.

You can frame your shot from almost any angle and get “beautifully cropped results.”   But what’s really powerful is the ability to scan a whiteboard in meetings or classrooms, that isn’t directly in front of you. The app automatically clears any glare, flattens the image, trims it and enhances it for readability. You can convert the image to Word or PowerPoint for editing or save it to OneDrive or other cloud storage locations. If you are an office suite user, incorporating Office Lens into your Microsoft ecosystem is easy and powerful. The app is free and available on iOS and Android.
