It need major improvement .. like multiple document can be created on the go... While scanning white board for that particular reference it can come up with multiple crops probabilities out of which we can select one after taking picture. But it constantly changing so in most cases it's annoying .. Full Review

CamScanner is way better for devices with regular cameras. When you make a pdf, nothing looks good. With this you have to worry lots about illumination, has no feature or filter to make that better. Full Review

It needs function to add multiple pages in one document, as well as function to keep original version without weird contrasts that makes your picture look scary. UPDATE - All good now.. all the issues fixed. Thanks Full Review

Always liked it but latest improvements sucks. If you start the app to view your last images, you cannot. Instead it started the camera. If you prefer back, the application closes. Also, crashes often on startup. Full Review

Can't give 1 star as the actual picture taking works well. The PDF features simply don't work. The resulting file cannot be opened in Adobe acrobat... Something wrong there. Full Review

Can't get better unless Microsoft innovates something new. It takes crystal clear images of whatever you need and whatever format you can possibly work with. And yes, you do not have to worry about the alignment, the aap does it for you.. Full Review

This is the application I have been looking for, for over 20 years. Taking a photo of a whiteboard or document and saving as a pdf or note and syncing with cloud services by WiFi only. This alone would be all in could expect. However the straightening feature and auto cropping make this a very rare, in my opinion, FIVE star application. Please develop gently as the risk of losing functionality or over complicating this superb app may be greater than the perceived benefit of new functionality. Thank you Microsoft (now that's a rarity). Full Review

Picture "scanning" at slanted angles also, with better clarity than just with the camera -- Really handy app. Came to know by word of mouth. One can take pictures of the document from a slanted perspective, yet the document comes properly. Which is not the case when taking document pictures with a camera. Moreover, even with a camera w/o image stabilization, this does a pretty good job & with better clarity, than when snapping with just the camera. Full Review

Pdf quality is horrible, unreadable. No settings to fix it. The preview is good but once the image is saved it is all blurry and over-compressed. Full Review

Would be nice if additional filters would be available as similar scanning apps have. Also, often had to manually adjust the document's border. Wasn't well detected automatically. Full Review

I like this app. Use it all the time. I also use OneNote. Cannot tell Onenote to launch this camera instead if the normal camera. This needs much tighter integration. Full Review

Going downhill. Used to be fantastic, but lately, every document I scan and save, ends up being unshareable. It wants to send links to those I wish to share with, rather than an actual PDF or other document type. Full Review

Love this app, have used it for a few years now however the 5 stars I would give it are now 3. You've changed the way the user names the saved file and is casing me no end of problems, please let us call it what we want without all the junk you add to it. Full Review

1. Captures are always placed in quick notes, I want to be able to choose folder before pressing save. 2.sometimes capture area switches quickly between different portions of scanned receipt, let me choose manually by a button for those cases. 3. Fix above 2 for 5 stars since its a really great except for those minor issues =) #BONUS if the name of document can be auto made by reading date of receipt (shouldnt be to hard with digitrecognition sw) + store name (normally fat at top of receipt) Full Review

Very user friendly and convenient. In the right conditions with proper lighting, it even comes close to matching the quality of a conventional scanner. I was most surprised at how good of a job it does etecting and cropping the edges of a document. A must have. Full Review

One of my new favourite apps. I love this app, it was very well designed and it completes the task flawlessly. I never, since I don't need to for financial reasons or make myself look intellectually superior, write any review unless I clearly believe in the app. Full Review

This is a great app. But if you add a feauture of storing the file on phone it would be very useful. Because sometimes you don't have internet connection or the file size becomes too much. Full Review

Would rate a 0 stars but I can't. Terrible interface, and I made an account and it won't let me log in, it just loads to a "manage account" sub screen and never loads. I'm sure the app could be great but this bug or programming flaw has turned me away from this Microsoft product that looks so promising. Full Review

I work with tons of documents everyday, sharing and passing around numerously. I often need to manually crop and do some editing to make it clearer and neat until my friend suggested me to office lens. I saved at least 50% of my time spent on processing documents. This is a great software and simple to use. Thanks developer. Full Review

Thank you very much for getting rid of that stupid forced cloud storage! Now Office Lens will be really handy in meetings, scanning documents, receipts, etc. The scans are so damn clear with my Note 8, even in low light, so much so, I doubt even a dedicated scanner would do any significantly better ???? Thanks again for getting rid of that stupid forced cloud storage, my 456GB Exynos Note 8 has way more than enough storage to handle and manage it all ???????? Kindly get rid of that stupid requirement for Word and PowerPoint documents. Full Review
