Microsoft’s popular Office Lens app that turns a smartphone into a pocket scanner has been released for iPhone and Android smartphones.
It is used to take pictures of receipts, business cards, menus, whiteboards, sticky notes and more.
The app is so clever that it uses optical character recognition (OCR) to turn a document’s text into a Word, PowerPoint or PDF.
It can also convert images of business cards into database contacts.
Office Lens for iPhone is available for free at the Apple App Store.
Additionally, a preview of Office Lens for Android phones is available today, with features similar to Office Lens for iPhone, by clicking on the Become a Tester link and following the instructions.
