Office Lens integration comes to Microsoft’s OneNote app for Android

Office Lens, an application from Microsoft, is one of the many applications dotting the Google Play Store that lets users scan physical documents instead of having to rely old school flatbed scanners and other such-like equipment necessary for digitization. With Office Lens, a document gets scanned then cropped and straightened automatically then the user gets to choose what to do with it: export it using a portable format (PDF) or as an image file or send it to Microsoft’s other productivity apps, note-taking app OneNote or popular word processor Word.

Going forward, it will no longer be necessary to send a newly scanned document using Office Lens to OneNote. This is because, with the latest update to OneNote, Office Lens is now integrated directly into the note-taking application.

App Shortcuts

Another feature making it to OneNote for Android with the latest update is a feature that has been available on the Android platform for over a year now: App Shortcuts. App Shortcuts is a feature that debuted on Android 7.1 Nougat which brings (Apple) 3D Touch-like options to access an application’s features straightaway by just holding it down/long-pressing without necessarily opening it.

Users of popular third-party Android launchers like Action and Nova are most likely to be familiar with App Shortcuts.
