What's New in Version 3.6

There is often no easy way to share your own contact data. So we implemented a Digital Business Card.
Now you can simply open your Digital Business Card and your business partner can scan it, take a picture or read the QR code.
Your contact will be transferred instantly and paper and nature saved. Ready for iOS9.

Customer Reviews

Poor recognition

In spite of previous reviews (which look suspiciously like AstroTurf), this app does NOT work well at all. It 1) does not reliably sort information into the appropriate fields, and 2) does not recognize individual words well -- words wind up shot through with all kinds of symbols and other gobbledygook.

Weak App

Their excel doesn't allow to filter all the information snapped by the phone and then usually corrected by the user. It doesn't recognize very well and the export excel is horrible. Therefore the app is useless. Weak app and even weaker customer service. Reached out to the developers three times with no response.

Great with our corporate Salesforce

Card recognition is almost 100% and export works smart.
