Scanning documents or whiteboards from your phone with Office Lens

Have you ever been in a situation when you have a document to scan but don't have access to a scanner or maybe you were in a meeting or a class and there is a whiteboard full of important information. In these situations it can be tempting to just take a picture on your phone. The problem is that the image usually does not turn out very well or is saved in a location that you did not intend.

Luckily there are apps for this available for Android and iPhone. One that we are highlighting is called "Office Lens". This app will optimize the image you take, crop it and adjust the angle automatically. It can also upload to google drive and other "cloud" storage.

For more info about how to use the app, see the app links and support pages below.
