    A new office lens app has been released: http://www.windowscentral.com/windows-10-gets-its-long-awaited-office-lens-uwp-app

    And I haven't had the chance to test it yet but my main question is if one can scan documents or whiteboard and the scans are saved locally? Without an internet connection.

    The main problem with the original office lens was that you had to have onenote to use it and if you wanted a doc or pdf file, you had to upload the scan and then download the converted files using onedrive - a very long process that wasted a lot of data.

    If I'm going be to using a doc scanner app, it has to work fully offline. Onenote should be an option, not the default

    Can anyone share if the new app works offline without onenote integration?

    Thank you

    In the new app you can select where do you want it to save, I tried this without WiFi and data connection and saved it to Gallery and it works.

    and you can do this continuously? In the old app, the limit used to be 10 docs or images before needing access to onenote

    Tried doing it 11 times and it didn't want me to open OneNote even once.

    At last, an improvement in the way it works. Finally some common sense has prevailed
