“Scanning documents” often means spending a long time standing in front of a bulky machine, waiting to scan a document page by page, and convert it to a digital file. But things might not be the same again, since today, almost anything can be done with just a smartphone. Scanning a document to make its content searchable has become quite simple. These applications are capable of capturing documents without flash or ghosting effect, unlike photos taken with a phone camera in the usual way.

Scanning Apps: Office Lens

Office Lens is provided by Microsoft Corporation. This application will turn your smartphone into a pocket scanner so that you can capture the text on a whiteboard, document or invoice, etc., and process them to get the same results as if you’re using a real scanner. In addition, Office Lens allows you to convert images into PDF, PowerPoint or Word and save them to OneNote, OneDrive or any other local device.
