Office Lens for Android: A Free Scanner Worth Getting

Since becoming the managing attorney in my local legal services office, I've found less and less time to devote to things like blogging. Now that I'm in the swing of things, I hope to be able to get back to it more.

Our legal services office covers seven counties in rural Southeastern Ohio. If the area covered by our office were a state, it would be the 48th largest. As a result, I'm on the road. A lot. And I don't want to carry a scanner around with me everywhere I go. So, I started looking for a free scanner app for my phone.

My choice: Microsoft's Office Lens. It allows you to take a picture of the document you want to scan and automatically straightens and crops it. It let's you save it to your OneDrive account as either a pdf file or word document. Moreover, if you choose to save it as a word document, it is automatically editable.

I have not had a chance to use it a lot, but what I've seen so far I like. And at free, it is a good price. I suggest giving it a try.
