Microsoft today updated its Office Lens app for Windows Phone with two new major improvements. You can download the new version now directly from the Windows Phone Store.

OneNote-One-Lens-1

First off, Office Lens has received a better document cleanup system, to the point where Microsoft claims you can now use the app “as you would a real document scanner.” Next, Office Lens now lets you choose where to save your images (notebook and section) in OneNote, rather than forcing you to stick with the default.

OneNote-One-Lens-2

Office Lens is part of Microsoft’s broader strategy to make OneNote the de facto digital note-taking tool. The only thing missing is for the company to bring the app to Android (iOS has the feature built into the OneNote apps).
