Worked great for a long time but now When I tried to convert to PDF it crashes. Please fix it soon as possible
Gets the jobs done 5/5
Great app. Does what it is designed for. Thanks.
Love this app 5/5
I use this all the time on the road to make a pdf of my receipts for reimbursement. It’s so simple.
No longer saves to OneDrive automatically. 3/5
The OneDrive functionality was broken in one of the latest updates. It’s now required to enter account credentials to save/view files saved to OneDrive. Please fix.
Goodbye scanners! 5/5
This is a must have! Along with OneNote my life is better organized.
excellent recognition but crashes 1/5
By ios 5 was the best
i cannot save the processed document, the app crashes on export
Incredible app 5/5
By Shahab Ab
The best portable scanner app you can find in the app store.. Complete and easy.
Fix this 1/5
For a while now it won’t let me send any pictures, because it just asks me to sign in to my email over and over.
The Best Thing Since Cut and Paste 5/5
I stumbled upon this app when looking for a way to keep track of receipts and saw that it’s party of the Office suite. It integrates very well with the other office apps and makes every receipt completely amazing. Expenses, business cards, hand sketches, are all a snap! I’ve barely scratched the surface on this app and really look forward to Microsoft keeping up their amazing job on the Office Suite. There are so many things. This is extremely underrated and really ought to receive more coverage and publicity. Update 3/2/2018 I just found that you can use it to redo the photos that are already in the library as well! If there was a way to merge multiple photos into a single PDF, this would get seven stars!!
Went from great to not so great 1/5
It’s the end of February 20 18th and somehow the app got upgraded, I don’t recall upgrading it. The new version does not do OCR on PDF. It went from being a really decent app to bad.
No I don’t only that, the controls take multiple clicks where before most of the controls were one click. My criticism of app previously was workflow issues, but for one picture at a time it was really good. I hope they restore the classic version.
Not able to upload/view captured images 1/5
Won’t open scanned files or even start the upload process on new captures, stating there is no network connection when there clearly is a signal AND airplane mode is not enabled.
Rename and 10 pages limited 4/5
By Dr Ahmed Shehta
To be very perfect: add the option to rename the files after saving in the phone
Also add the ability to add more than 10 pages, or the option to merge more 2 files or more together
Makes life a little easier 5/5
By Andy Doney
Great tool for work and even better for school! Love this app
Super handy and easy 5/5
The latest updates have improved the app’s usability greatly. The image correction used to be really good, but the overall app pretty clunky. Now it’s smooth sailing. Highly recommend this app to anyone who take pictures of whiteboards, business cards, documents etc. and more. Thanks for the great app Microsoft!
It’s magic ! 5/5
Well.. works for me !
Auto crops & contrast for docs & whiteboard 5/5
Automatically crops & contrast for docs & whiteboard. Output to jpg PDF etc. send as email attachment, or store on phone or cloud.
One of my Primary Apps 5/5
This app is fantastic, use it all the time. Quick, simple, and gives quality results ever time. Even when documents are at an angle and lighting is not what it should be you still get a good result and perspective corrected.
The interface for saving, could be improved, bit confusing to get use to and we’re it is going to be saved. But once learnt it is fine and taking quick scans to default location is simple. Changing names latter, is ok but could be improved UI wise
Still it is very much a 5 star app!!
What OCR? 1/5
Tried this out hoping to use the OCR feature mentioned in the description. Saw zero OCR features.
It used to work perfectly 2/5
I don’t know what exactly was changed with the latest updates but please change it back to what it used to be. The page recognition is super slow and lags so if you move the camera, you almost have to force it do it again. Also after scanning the pages, they all have different sizes when saving. Lastly, it used to be able to see the pages that were scanned before saving and that’s gone also.
Close to perfect 4/5
By Waffentragger Auf E100
Sometimes scans appear upside down. 5%
Sometimes entire pages are missed. 5%
iPhone X Support? 1/5
Multiple app updates since the iPhone X release without updated screen support? Just dropping a line to you guys in case this is something you weren't aware of or hadn't thought of.
Please update app to optimize for iPhone X 4/5
App works well. Except that now that I and millions of others have the iPhone X, please optimize app to take advantage of the iPhone X layout and screen. Currently, the app shows black bars on top and bottom which is very annoying and wasted space.
Great for college lectures! 4/5
Great app but needs a few updates. Looks terrible on iPhone X and needs a UI update to fill the screen completely. Right now it’s showing giant black bars at the top and bottom of the app. Also needs a feature where you can just auto-crop a photo but leave alone the color and brightness. I thought that’s what the photo mode does but apparently not.
By ابن نجيد
Drained my data and battery 1/5
At first I thought this all was ok, didn’t really have all the features I wanted, but what it did seemed to work ok. But then I noticed my phone was always accessing the network, always. Constant spinning wheel up by wifi icon. Then the app started freezing. I deleted it and the problem went away immediately.
Never will use a scanner again! 5/5
It's so easy to scan documents with Lens. Thanks Microsoft!
Too much like a photo 3/5
When I capture a document it looks like a photo even showing a shadow from my phone. I use a separate scanner app if I want a better image of a document but really like integration with Office 365 so hope this feature improves in this app.
Scam OCR App 1/5
By Lyrically Blest
Searched OCR, this trash MS product was first result. They use all the language of being able to convert written to digital, but it’s just another scam by Microsoft. Will they ever get their act together and quit trying to defraud the consumer at literally almost every turn?? Probably not when it’s ingrained in their culture, that’s hard to break free from.
Guess I should have discerned that “Office Lens can convert images to editable Word and PPT files too”...really meant it plops an image into a Word doc lol.
Amazing app 5/5
Very easy to use. The auto size detector is amazing and the picture quality awesome
PDF export to OneDrive 1/5
By Wayne M M
Office Lens will no longer export PDF to OneDrive. It just hangs. Also I can’t save to OneDrive. Both functions worked before updating this AM.
Just 1 Suggestion 4/5
By Left Angle
This has quickly become my go-to app and is nearly perfect. Rarely do I have to adjust boundaries and provides sharp images without me having to steady the phone too much.
The only thing I don’t see is a default “save to” option. Having to remember to hit done is retentive enough. Having to constantly choose where it’s “done” to is overkill. Worse, is having to hit done twice when making alterations or naming, then still having to make another option after that.
Everything else is perfect.
Great app 4/5
Great app only wish it would let me change the name of items before I saved easily
Works really well, please don't kill this app Microsoft, you are an expert for that
Great app 5/5
I use it often. I like the item going to the cloud.
Supervisor on-the-go 5/5
I really love this app! Extremely helpful in every area of my life!
Never have to save physical receipts again 5/5
The feature I use most is to capture receipt with camera and auto crop function. Then I save them into OneNote in a Restaurant Receipt (and respective categories). I wish the process require less steps. Not yet 5 stars but I give 5 for encouragement.
Great App. Use to Scan Business Cards 5/5
Great app. Use to scan business cards and put in my Capsule CRM. Wish they could connect them automatically.
This app just works.
Essential business tool 5/5
If you travel for business and need to submit receipts this app is required. Easy to use. After I scan in the receipt I can email it to myself as a jpg which I then attach to my expense system.
Perfectly convenient 5/5
By G Grizzle
This app is great. Taking the picture is a breeze. Your document is then cropped for you, and you have several convenient options for exporting/saving your new, clean image. I use this app pretty often as a college student, and it’s much better than dealing with finding a scanner or copier when I’m on campus. I couldn’t be happier with this app, and I’d recommend it to anyone.
I use it a few days a week at work 5/5
Perfect for capturing white board sessions. OneNote integration makes it easy.
Love it download 5/5
I love this app I’m a college student and a lot of my classes uses power points and this apps helps taking notes soo easy…
A fine app 2/5
This is a very convenient tool. I do not use it very regularly but it comes very handy when I need it.
However, despite my explicit request not to do so, Office Lens keeps asking me for a rating in a very annoying pop up message. I thought it would go away after a while, but apparently lines of code can be very persistent. On the other hand, I am a mere person who breaks when bent. So here I am.
When an app ignores the device setting to does something I don’t want it to do, best rating it can get is two star. It only goes downward from that.
So two stars. Great app. But I hope it stops sending me pop up message.
Switched from CamCard 4/5
After I found that my over 200 scanned cards could not be recovered from CamCard lite as it is no longer supported by iOS 11 and that the only option is to switch to CamCard business (which did not transfer them over also), I started searching for an alternative.
I no longer wanted the Business Card images to be trapped inside the software not knowing when its author would drop support. After trying out over 6 competing apps, finally settled for this combo of Office Lens/OneNote
Areas needing improvement:
1. If one selects the ‘+’ to add a second page and then changes ones mind there is no way to back out short of closing the app
2. There should be an option to change picture resolution
By Nate the Great44
It’s free and works like a charm.
Versatile & hi rez output 5/5
I snapped a pic of an 18”x22” very detailed medical poster and was able to make a FULL sized repro print that was quite readable.
One of Office Lens’ many uses
Really helpful app !! 5/5
Simply serves its purpose, and best part is its light weight and free !!
Great App 5/5
I’ve been using this app for a while now and though I use Evernote for storing receipts this app is much better in taking pics and turning them into PDFs.
