Awesome Note Capturing App

Gathering with a group to discuss ideas often results in lots of good info on a whiteboard or chalkboard which then requires someone in the group to take down separate notes afterwards.

If you ever become the one that ends up having to spend the time taking down the whiteboard notes after a meeting, there’s actually an app for that!

It’s called Office Lens and it’ll save you a ton of time.

This Microsoft app makes it super easy to snap a picture of any document, whiteboard or chalkboard and then turn it into a PDF, Word document or Powerpoint deck.

Not only does it digitize all your notes it will fix the distortion if you had to shoot it from an angle.

Every time you capture notes from an off angle, you’ll love how well this app gets it done.

Once you have the image, the app lets you save and share it to various Microsoft platforms that include OneNote and OneDrive or you can simply save it as a document or picture.

Another great use of the app is to capture and organize business cards.

The Office Lens app is free & available for iPhone, Android and Windows Phone users.
