  1. Amin Marashi-avatar

    This app was much better before. Now its trash. Microsoft please fix this. I cant tell you how many problems this app has now. The auto mode makes everything look washed out. Lots of times the boarders are now detected correctly. Im very unhappy with the new updates. I dont know why you ruin something thats just working fine. 👎👎👎

  2. Keagan Velde-avatar

    microsoft office lens pdf scanner app I've always thought the programming to get this app to do this is quite wacky, I'm very impressed. Can scan images sideways and they come out straight. Decent lighting always helps. Very well made, just wish it gave more options for sharing the files rather than just Microsoft only apps.

  3. Rabigh Kamal-avatar

    ios It is a great app! I have tried others like Samsung's Optical Reader but none has come close to this. It is very good at taking scans. I love the variety of ways you can easily export and share. You can apply different filters to make it suit your needs. 5/5, amazing product!

  4. Darko Resnik-avatar

    apk Was great. Edge detection finds every edge except on the page being scanned with this latest update. Lighting, contrasting backgrounds or moving the phone around doesn't help. As soon as you get 1 edge fixed another locks on to the wrong spot. Lens used to work nearly perfectly.

  5. Miranda Gonzo-avatar

    скачать Takes ok pics of the documents. I especially like that it links up with the Microsoft cloud, but you do have to set it up initially otherwise all the other documents will not be able to be transferred.

    android I got to know about this app when I was watching a YouTube video on how to write notes in laptop. From that time I started using this app. During the lockdown when I was not having my books it helped me a lot in studying. My friends sended me the photo of the book and with the help of this app I turned the book or the writings of the book in the pdf format. I imported my pdf to the laptop from my phone through this app. I think that this is an incredible app. Thank you Microsoft.

    pc Great quality and super easy to use across all Microsoft apps. Plus it makes saving documents to your camera roll extremely easy. I was able to use it within minutes of downloading it.

    iphone Non functional This app is the most unreliable pile of garbage on this store. Files look complete on the device of origin and then cut out most of the file when sending. It refuses to allow custom file names and forces the use of Dropbox and OneDrive.

  9. Andy Steve Lojuntin-avatar

    download OneNote and OneDrive integration is very useful but the app has stability issue and freezes a lot of time. (Android 10, Redmi Mi A2). I hope the stability and responsiveness issues are fix in next update batch

  10. Mark Fedorchuk-avatar

    descargar I'm using this app to take pictures of my homework during the coronavirus quarantine, and it works perfectly most of the time! Doesn't do well with if there are long columns in a chart. Works well even on a white desk!

  11. bogdan A.-avatar

    Always a nightmare finding scanned documents and auto detection of borders needs improvement. If it does not ALWAYS work, why don't you just leave it manual?

  12. Nigel Leech-avatar

    Brilliant app. The Samsung camera fails to recognise documents most of the time so back to Office lens I go! Makes archiving paper docs and artwork so much easier. Cheers!

  13. Julius f-avatar

    Not very user friendly and can make the simple more complicated than necessary, the workmanship of this app lacks structure and stability.

  14. Shawn Scientifica-avatar

    Shawn Scientifica


    Used to work great, they changed the app now it's just garbage. It does about as much as the built in camera. Leave it to Microsoft to destroy their own brand. Should've seen it coming

  15. Tan Wen Wen-avatar

    Sometimes it worked perfectly but sometimes it lags and doesnt allow me to use the app which i had to uninstall and install again pls help to adjust this or solve the problem thanks.

  16. Mark Martel-avatar

    Works really well for scanning docs. Love the auto cropping, white balance, and contrast adjustments. A+ results.

  17. Gary La Puma-avatar

  20. Amanda Bailey-avatar

    After scanning first document, it wouldn't operate. Black screen and locked my phone up every time I opened the app. Couldn't access my scanned files.

  21. SANNY DEY-avatar

    It's far more better than CamScanner.Though my phone quality is not good but still The quality of documents,Pdf's are outstanding.

  22. Moses Cantu-avatar

    Works great, and can easily upload to OneDrive making it extremely simple to transfer files from your phone to your computer

  23. Heather Price-avatar

    Very useful for working from home. Easy to use and gives a good snap-on scan area.

  24. Jaime Vigil-avatar

    It's getting better but it is now restarting itself when you go to "my files" in Android 5.0.2. I like that it captures a document faster and not cut it off.

  25. Delma Irin Shylaja-avatar

    Delma Irin Shylaja


    Improve filter option. Try to enhance scanned document. Still i can't find a perfect alternative to camscanner

  26. Chase Darden-avatar

    Document scanning is good when it works properly, which is rare. Usually tries to capture surrounding objects like a desk or table surface.

  27. Michele Lopez-avatar

    Love it! And it works with all my office systems on my phone to make smooth transition to email or documents.

  28. George S.-avatar

    Unlike the Adobe app, Office Lens lets you save your scans *directly* to your device and in a variety of formats. Trusted to submit written work for my final exams!

  29. Ayan Goswami-avatar

    Bring the feature of correcting pictures taken tangentially to make it flat as if taken vertically. This is the only feature for which people use CamScanner leaving office lens.

  30. Tacocat King-avatar

    Very good! Helps me send high definition photos of homework for my teachers to check during online school. Very helpful for me and my classmates during this time.

    Perfect app. Not much more to say!

  93. Björn Schuster-avatar

    Björn Schuster


    Gotten so inexplicably bad i can't even fathom. Image always dark as night while regular camera is super bright and clear (Pixel 4). Edge detection randomly picks out elements on the document, consistently gets it wrong. Unusable in it's current state (same goes for the lens integration in the new office app. Microsoft please please fix this I live entirely in the Office ecosystem both privately and in work and now have to download extra apps. Edit: Figured out what was causing my problem. After placing the documents i want to scan on the floor rather than desk it works like it used to. Whitebalance correction and detection seem to be entirely thrown off by a white (shocking, I'm sure no one has that!) desk. Bumping rating from 1 to 4 stars.

  94. Roxanne Wynne-avatar

    It is great at fixing up documents!

  95. Noel Sovy-avatar

    The experience is quite good, but sometimes it gets a bit hung. One suggestion is that after scanning something the file gets uploaded to the drive its not available on the phone, then you have to download it, so please change this. The other suggestions is the its a bit difficult to focus the camera, so please improve the focus too. Over its good!!

  96. Nicholas Shade-avatar

    Great app and love the one drive integratation. It should be five stars but there is no way to turn off the auto align of handwriting. Because of this, some pages will be rotated slightly and then it has to put weird streaks in the corners. If there was a way to turn this off, or at least have the corners match the background and not look so ugly and unprofessional it would be 5 stars

  97. Anand Kumar-avatar

    Almost perfect app for scanning documents. Most of the time edge detection of the document is spot on but sometimes it is not. And you can also share documents after creating which is awesome. As it is Microsoft product you get sense of security with it. And it is free of ads.

  98. Staci Culotta-avatar

    Mostly easy to use. I wish I could adjust the guidelines so it would take a bigger or smaller picture instead of having to move the camera and try again. (Like I can do when cropping pictures in other software.) I scan a lot of worksheets with a colored heading at the top it that this scanner doesn't like to acknowledge as part of the paper or sheets with a box drawn on the page that it only wants to focus on.

  99. Jackson Ballew-avatar

    Works great. Pretty good at cropping the paper automatically and you can save the file as an image or a PDF making saving multiple images as one file in your OneDrive super easy. It's also dead simple to use. Open the app, look at the thing you want to scan, and shoot. If you want to put multiple in the same file or do multiple at once that's super easy, just hit the little button next to the camera button.

  100. Anton Pussep-avatar

    I'm removing this app because I cannot use the scanned documents easily. They are not visible in the file manager. They need to be shared first, one by one. It's impossible to share all scanned documents. What's really outrageous is that when I share a document with another app, Office Lens only shares a TXT file with a link to the location on OneDrive. I'll use another scanner app then.
