One of the "must reads" for us here @ #Outsiders is +Techlicious as the insights it shares is invaluable in how it represents it in a straightforward manner. Our Team received this and we wanted to report this as a 'Tip of the Week" for this edition of "Notations From the Grid". We plan on having some direct insights on it soon:
|Free Office Lens App is Almost as Good as a Desktop Scanner|
|Office Lens, Microsoft’s free
powerful pocket scanner app (available for iOS, Android and Windows
Phones) is a handy substitute for clunky desktop scanners, automatically
converting photos of documents into editable Word docs, PowerPoint
slides and PDFs.
There’s a lot to like about this simple productivity app. It automatically detects text and borders, and is able to automatically correct for pictures taken at an angle so all your scanned documents always look flat.
In testing, our tech editor, Fox Van Allen, found that it does a great job of automatically detecting, cropping and straightening documents, with no problems creating Word docs out of clear printed text. Oh, and did we mention it's free?
