Office Lens user reviews :

Sweet app. The older versions were better and had more features and control. That’s modern development for you. A problem I’ve noticed: Whiteboard shots go too far and make purple and blue marker look like black. Again, use to look great. Now it looks like all the same color…

Among the other apps out there, this one feels stable and cleaner. Lot of options too for exporting the processed image. It earns 5 stars for this. That is until, before writing this, I decided to scan receipts for my recent trip. These were in PDF format, which gets stored to onedrive by default. After about 23 odd scans, the app decided to crash. At which point it will not show me my uploaded history. Are we looking at an app which is stable for few here and there uploads…? Not sure.

Works most of the time. Done good job when working. When it cannot define border of area, it does make a mess. Wish it supports more modes, like multiple documents, tac board, projector screen, etc.. I had it crashed once… and my camera could not work entirely. I had to restart my phone to get it working again.

Now, if this could scan business cards, and then import those contact details to outlook or to the device contacts…you’d got a killer app for business

Saving to office documents is a bless 4 stars just because I really miss the possibility to choose where to upload the files.

great start few issues 1) not clear where the scanned doc/image gets stored in one drive. the path should be visible in the page the shows one drive as destination and in details page for the scan 2) One drive, gallery are desitnations while word, power point adn pdf are formats. its very confusing to show all of them as a list. there should be 2 separte sections one to choose the type word, ppt, image, pdf and other to choose location on phone or onedrive.

Incredible I would love to know the algorithms behind this. Though one thing I noticed.. It preffers white background(does not recognize yellow paper on neutral background)

Great Works perfect, crops the document accurately and overall very useful. No longer need to carry documents with me to meeting. Just scan what’s needed and away I go.
