The official iOS Microsoft Lens: PDF Scanner app updated to Version 2.53.1 on Apple’s iPhone and iPad smart devices this past week.

This new app update renamed the My Files section as My Scans and also fixed the bug that was causing the app to freeze while performing a crop or applying a filter.

Here’s the full release notes:

  • Fixes an issue where the filter and crop capability was freezing for some users
  • My Files is now called My Scans
  • Other bug fixes and performance improvements

Microsoft Lens: PDF Scanner is a free app that lets users take and then convert photos into editable PDF, Word, PowerPoint, and Excel files. Its main claim to fame is its ability to convert handwritten text seen in a photo into regular text that can be annotated, edited, and shared by the user.
