I stood as referee for someone and was required to send out some documents as part of the deal. However, there was no scanner available. Fortunately, my Lumia was. I remember that I had installed the Office Lens app on it. Office Lens is like having a scanner in your pocket. With it, you can digitalize notes on whiteboards or blackboards, making it an awesome tool for scanning documents, including cards, letters and all.
Quickly, I launched Office Lens on my phone and captured the three documents that I needed to send, launched the email app, attached them, and sent. Presto!
Easy pie. Yes; smartphones are killing the scanner too. Smartphones are such horrible, unrelenting things!
