ABBYY Business Card Reader easily & simply captures & stores contact from business cards in 25 languages to your smartphone. The recognized data can be saved in either your smartphone’s Contacts or in the app’s own digital storage.

ABBYYs award-winning optical character recognition technology provides quick & accurate recognition of all contact information: names, organizations, phone numbers, e-mail addresses, etc.
Automatically focuses on the business card, detects its edges, crops any extraneous background & captures an image of the card all by itself.
The app highlights “unusual” characters with blue color and displays the original image so that you can quickly confirm the apps output.
No matter how a phone number appears on a business card, BCR will automatically put in all the missing parts, so that you can reach the contact even if the country code was omitted in print.
BCR will correct any typos and fill in the missing address fields (e.g. postcode, ZIP code, or county) so you can easily find it on the map.
Sync card data across different mobile platforms via ABBYY’s cloud storage to make retrieval of card data simple and accessible from all your devices. Automatic and manual backups to archive and restore data from saved cards to transfer to another iPhone or computer.

Phone call

Some times we can't make a phone call from the application because some times I have a 1 in front


Had to type in or correct almost everything entered by the app. Would have been faster to manually enter into my contacts! Do not recommend.
