    I like that Google Drive scans the text in images so I can easily find certain pictures with text in them, but I don't think OneDrive has this functionality, or if it does perhaps I'm not doing it correctly. Can anyone tell me if I'm mistaken? I'm going to use OneDrive regardless, but it would be nice to be able to search the text in my images.

    Try this app
    Office Lens | Windows Phone Apps+Games Store (United States)

    Using Office Lens you can easily convert text images into word or powerpoint documents.
    Also you can try Camscanner
    CamScanner | Windows Phone Apps+Games Store (United States)

    Using these two apps you can easily upload your converted documents to onedrive on the go.

    Have a great day!

    I think this was just added in the last week or so... but I can see firsthand that OneDrive is doing OCR to pull out text. I've searched on several things that were written on t-shirts and on papers. Pretty cool.
