a small bug 4/5
works fine. But when save as image to nextcloud, the filename is with colon, which is not supported in Windows. As a result, the file cannot be syncd to my laptop. Hope the default filename can be changed.
They made it worse 1/5
This was, even a few weeks ago, a reasonably good app. I think it was recently updated a couple times, and now it is garbage. It is crashing constantly. It’s also struggling to identify pages (I think it used to be better at this). I hope they fix it, but until then it’s pretty awful.
Must be Microsoft people who like it but this is horrible. I copied a few pages with my iPhone, selected word doc, had to create a login then it said done. Where the hell is it?
Crashing as of now every single second!! 1/5
App cannot even run for a minute. It’s keep crashing while you’re trying to take a picture or upload it. IOS 12.3.1. iPhone XS Max 256GB. Used with office 365 subscription. It takes 1 second to crash right after the application is launched.
Can’t save to Sharepoint. Can’t control file size 1/5
This app and OneDrive can’t save files to sharepoint!!! Why???!!!
Cannot control image size either.
Text box option disappearing 1/5
This app used to be fine for my use case, which is taking pictures, annotating them, and then saving them directly to OneDrive. However, recently the app has eliminated the option to add a text box to an image. Now, the only option to mark up an image is the freehand pencil. Not great when trying to annotate my pictures. Which I do for literally every picture I take for my job.
Now I have to find a new (not business approved) app and then transfer the pictures to OneDrive later. Thanks Microsoft.
No se puede escribir en la diapositiva como antes 2/5
By Noelia Fraser
Por qué motivo ahora no figura la opción de agregar un texto sobre la diapositiva?
A mi me servía para captar la imagen y poder hacer reseñas sobre la misma en clases?
Se puede volver a escribir?
Where did the text option go 3/5
Our corporation was using this app for in the field inspections with the ability to use the text option to add critical details to the photos or pdf creations. Now that the feature is gone the app is not useful as it is. Can we please have the feature text added back apart of the app and it will get 5 stars from me.
Please bring back an old feature! 3/5
Please bring back the ability to change filter type after the picture is taken. It was mysteriously removed after an update a while ago.
The feature is still not present. I am using a 9.7” iPad Pro, iOS 12.3.1, running OfficeLens v. 2.25.
Unusable now... 1/5
Loved this app, but now when I open the app it asks which Microsoft account I want to use and upon selection the app crashes. Can’t reset the app either.
Please change the app icon 4/5
The icon of this office app looks different from other office apps. Please design a new icon.
Was Great... Once 2/5
By Left Angle
Maybe it’s because my ancient 3 year old iPhone SE updates are interfering; maybe it’s because Microsoft’s updates are making bad things happen, but this once perfect app is no longer so wonderful.
The orange outline disappears the moment the shutter button is pressed and the result is haphazard at best. The image captured may be what the entire viewfinder was showing, a portion of what was outlined the split second before the shot was taken or if you’re lucky, you got what you expected.
It now takes at least 3 or 4 tries to make a usable image and more than once, I’ve discovered too late that an image I thought had covered the entire document was in fact, cut off at some random line of text.
Time for me to start seeking another app. 2 stars because it kinda works... if you’re patient, willing to make several attempts and stay aware.
No resolution control 2/5
Why are we wasting data on scans that likely don’t need hi rez?
This app created a 1.5mb file for the exact same scan as a 0.3mb file on another scanner app.
Makes my phone worth more to me 5/5
By Jim (NHHacker)
If you use Microsoft-*anything (at work and/or at home) this is a must have utility. Capture everything from receipts to whiteboards. It squares up the images. It makes getting the image (or even multi-page pdf formatted results) to your OneDrive-connected devices so easy you might not realize it's already done. I use this app almost daily as a matter of habit. My phone would be so much less without it.
Was great, now it keeps crashing 1/5
Crashes, before I can do anything... worked great for months until it didn’t.
Cannot find exported photo 3/5
Weird. After I choose to export my photo to my photo library I cannot find it in the photos app. What’s going on?
Terrible app 1/5
By Nexus jziabshsjbsjs
Used to be awesome, I used to take pictures of my receipt after business trips. Now it only highlights part of the receipt and won’t let me change it, time to delete and use the camera app
Crashes on startup 1/5
I would give this a much higher rating based on using it over the past couple of years, if it wasn’t crashing when I start it
Additional info: iPhone X, iOS 12.2
Still crashes on startup (5/9/2019). Note that when I go into App Switcher, I see the program there, but can’t maximize it
By o l i v e
I used to find this app useful, but it has stopped working entirely for me. When I try to convert an image to a word doc, it asks me to log in -> I put in my email and password -> I get sent back to the page asking what I’d like to convert my photo into. I select Word -> It asks me to log in. I’m stuck in this impossible loop because the app doesn’t allow me to do something as simple as log in. I tried making a new account and couldn’t log into that one either. I tried going into my settings, where there is different log in option, and that one didn’t work either. Please fix your most basic function.
What about the icon? 4/5
Works fine, but why did it get an update today without a new icon to make it consistent with the rest of the office apps?
A nice App, but can do better 4/5
Such as a icon like the NEW STYLE of OFFICE 365
Good enough for a free app 3/5
Considering its free it works well enough. However, apps like Scanner Pro are just better in every way. Microsoft should be setting the benchmark considering the size of the company.
I need clear all files button 4/5
I need clear all files button, really need! Dislike to delete files one by one!
Crashes everytime 1/5
I really like Office Lens when it worked. But after a recent update it crashes everytime I launch the app.
We need OCR
Can’t detach old pictures while sharing 2/5
Once I take a picture with this app. While sharing it appends old pictures in subsequent screenshots. Practically become unusable.. please fix it.
Great, but ... 3/5
This app works great for the most part. One big feature that is missing is the possibility to view, when cropping a snapped image, with more precision where are the corner-circles being dropped: create a zoomed image on a part of the screen that is not blocked by the user’s own finger when dragging the edge marks.
Not letting me sign in... 2/5
I just made a one drive account and put in my user and pass. It’s not even signing into my account. I deleted and downloaded the app multiple times- please fix this if it’s a glitch.
First class 5/5
Love this app. Got rid of my old desktop scanner since this does a perfectly good job of scanning all my correspondence, pdf and save it to cloud storage. Really don’t understand all the negative reviews on this one. Compliments my O365 subscription perfectly.
This app is horrible 1/5
Upon initial installation, this app was my lifeline for college assignments but the more I used it the less functional it became. It started without being able to connect to my OneDrive, and then losing camera functionality altogether and now it won’t even run when I try to start it. Absolutely disappointed with the app at this point
EDIT: I got a developer response so this is my reply, I’m on iPhone 6s Plus on the latest OS. (Not sure what the number is specifically). I have had camera issues in the past so I don’t believe it is your app not being able to open my camera. But when the app does work, it won’t save any PDFs to my one drive. Even if I uninstall and reinstall. Also even when it doesn’t open my camera, I still have the work around of going through to my camera library, but ever since the last update, the app won’t process me clicking the icons and takes forever to even open it. I’ve never had issues with device operation other than the camera being buggy but all my other apps work fine with no lag whatsoever
Great at capturing. Terrible at saving. Usually can’t save anything. Makes it useless. Doesn’t help to have great images you can’t process.
Crash after crash after crash (update) 2/5
It also limits how many pages you can scan at once. Big no no for me. I’ll stick to my old scanner app. Only tried this one out because it was free and it was from Microsoft.
App crashed whenever I was trying to view the files that I had already scanned. I’m using the iPad Pro that came out last year.
App crashes 1/5
I heard a lot of good things about this app. I have installed it But with this latest update for iOS. App is always crashing. I hate to say this is worst Microsoft product i have used. I have never seen a product without coming up any fixes after the failure update.
I'm going to use one that doesn't crash 3/5
I'm using my old scanner application, using this is like a one-way ticket to crash city, when I'm in the middle of scanning important documents it crashes and it won't reload
This app is what i’ve been searching for!!! It’s super amazing,fantastic PERFECT!!!
I love it...
VERY HIGH QUALITY
No way to quickly empty gallery 2/5
After transferring photos to Photos, for example, there is no way to quickly clear the gallery. Most annoying!
User interface gives impression that when you delete, Lens deletes the photo from Photos also!
There is user feedback about this issue going back multiple years. Listen to your users!
It still astounds me how this company has ever made any money given how horrible their user interfaces have always been. You’d think after all these years they’d have figured it out.
Cream of the crop 5/5
I am amazed how much better Lens is than any other scanner app I’ve tried (on both iPad and Android). All the more amazing that it comes from Microsoft whose products I tend to hate (except for Word). It’s fast, simple, has incredible image quality, and offers lots of options for format and saving. The others seem like junk by comparison.
Only scans half a page !!! 2/5
When I try to scan documents, it only scans shows half of the page and cuts the other half and this has been happening since long time and I don’t see them fixing it, so I will just use another app.
File name and meta data disappeared. Disappointed 3/5
Where did the mated the ad ago and the file name that I created for each of these pictures that I took using this app? There disappeared please fix.
Crashamatic for biz cards 1/5
Limits save space, then crashes with each saved card photo you try to delete for more space
Crashes Constantly 1/5
I used to like this app; now it is unusable! It crashes seconds after opening it on my iPhone X with the latest iOS. Really wish this would have been fixed in the latest update. Maybe you can fix it now.
Very useful but lacking iPhone X support 2/5
This app is useful for uploading documents on the go or if you don't own a scanner. However, ever since getting an iPhone XR I’m no longer able to tap certain menu items like the most important cropping button to change the crop as they are located in the notch. Please correct the location of these icons.
No support for iPhone XS/XR 1/5
Guess the developers forgot about the notch !!
Used to be 5 star 1/5
It has been cutting off the bottom of many scans to the point of being useless. Adobe PDF Scan works. I’ve given feedback but no reply or bug fix yet. Fix it and I’ll change my review.
Used to be a great app 1/5
When I discovered this app 2 yrs ago, I recommended it to everyone. The ability to take pictures of whiteboards, straight and color-corrected, was fantastic. Also the scanning was great. Now in 2 out of 3 scans, the app is unable to recognize the document’s edges. Microsoft, what have you done???
Does what it says at a snails pace! 2/5
You can take pictures of text pages, and convert them into recognition and searchable texts, but only 10 pages at a time, which means if you’ll also spend your time reconstructing pages of texts if your project is 11 or more pages! Awful if you’ve got 100’s if pages of research to do!
App buttons get cut on iPhone XR 2/5
This app is still not compatible with iPhone XR. The buttons on top right get cut making it difficult to edit scans. Please fix this at the earliest. Thanks.
iPhone XR sizing 3/5
This app does not support the XR resolution.
