Windows Phone is becoming more efficient to an office setting as Microsoft has launched, Office Lens; an app that will allow users to take photos of documents and upload them to its OneNote service.
Microsoft’s intention is to effectively turn the smartphone into a small portable document scanner than can capture images of documents and save for use later (how thoughtful!).
The software giant suggested that the app could be of great assistance for people in meetings wanting to capture a whiteboard discussion, or for taking photos of receipts for expense claims later.
Office Lens, will also attempts to cut the image scanned to something more user-friendly, but identifying the document from the background, cutting out the background and where necessary rotating it to a more readable angle.
