OneNote for Android scores Office Lens integration in latest update
OneNote for Android has scored a new update that adds Office Lens integration to the note-taking app. Google recently did something similar with Keep and Google Lens, although the feature is currently available only on a limited number of phones that support Lens. Microsoft's solution, on the other hand, works on pretty much any device, so long as it has OneNote installed on it.
Office Lens is Microsoft's take on mobile document scanning and has been quite reliable thus far, in my experience at least. It's pretty adequate at cleaning artifacts from your images, straightening perspective, and evenly exposing the entire frame. What it isn't so good at is dealing with complex images, such as photos, but that's to be expected, considering it's primary goal is to produce sharp, clean-looking "scans" of text and simple graphics.
The latest update for OneNote also adds a nifty app shortcuts menu for those running Android 7.1 Nougat and up, containing various useful quick actions for the app. Users can also now sign up with a phone number, instead of exclusively with a password, Neowin reports.
