We’ve all been there before. After an hour-long brainstorming session, you need to capture everything in a way that can be edited or shared later on. A photo simply doesn’t cut it. Microsoft has a great solution that many people are unaware of: Microsoft lens. It’s a fantastic application that lets you turn your mobile device into a convenient scanner. You can capture information and turn it into a digital file within seconds.
