Office Lens is the newest app from Microsoft that acts like a pocket scanner. It does scanning your real world objects and turning them into 2D readable office image/PDF/Word/Power Point.

Having discussion using whiteboard where all the ideas are in the whiteboard?
Use the Office Lens app to help you convert all those ideas on the whiteboard into 2D readable format.

Do you have receipt that you need to attach as proof of your purchase?
Easy, let the Office Lens help you to convert it to 2D readable format.

Based on my testing, the app not only converts the objects into 2D readable format, but also removes anything unnecessary such as, when I took photo of my ticket, I got my thumb finger on the ticket, however Office Lens removes my finger from the end result. See for yourself.

However, I did test to scan something else, but some of them were not converted properly. So as long as the distinction is clear between the object you want to convert and the area surround the object, Office Lens will convert it correctly.

This app is totally FREE and does not offers any in-app purchases.
This app can be used offline/without internet access. However if you want to upload your document to OneDrive or mail them, internet is required.

Current version varies between devices, however the app requires Android 4.0 (ICS) and up.

Here is the Google Play Store download link:
