New app for Windows Phone 8 "puts a scanner in your pocket"
posted by Alan F. / Feb 22, 2014, 8:20 PM
Even though the app is listed in the Windows Phone Store, it currently is undergoing testing by Microsoft and cannot be downloaded by anyone just yet. But it certainly sounds like an app that could be very useful to Windows Phone users. After you scan a document, it will be stored digitally. And the OCR capabilities will allow you to scan a document and edit it.
We will keep an eye out on the listing, and as soon as Microsoft goes live with Office Lens, we'll let you know. After all, who wouldn't want to have a scanner in their pocket.

Something really useful from MS, for a change. In fact, this could be really really useful. I was wondering if there was an app like that for mobile devices. Does it convert the documents to PDF?

No, this is not good enough! It's too little too late.. They need to do more than this.. Where's the stylus support? MS can't do anything right.... I hate my WP device.. Please don't buy WP people!!!!!
