Don't know when this sneaked out,  but I wasn't aware until just now that



Microsoft's new tool for Android phones converts photos into Excel spreadsheets. Along with numbers, you can convert lists and recipes.

Put down the paper and pick up your phone. A new Microsoft tool for Android phones can convert numbers on a sheet of paper into a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet in a couple of seconds. With Excel's Insert Data from Picture tool, you can capture an image of data in rows and columns on a piece of paper, and the Android Excel app will automatically convert the image into editable table data.

The tool sends the image to Excel's online image-recognition engine to process and convert it into a table. During the import, Excel gives you a chance to fix anything before it's converted. Microsoft said Insert Data from Picture will be coming to the iOS version of Excel soon.
