***** Winner of the RISING STAR Award in the Mobile Star Awards *****

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, ABBYY 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. For instance, (495) 123_4)5*67 will be changed to +7 495 123 45 67.
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, updateable 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.

Great app, WAY too expensive

Works well - just what i was looking for - but for the few cards I do, I might as well manually enter them. 7.99/mo would work out to about 7.99/card. How about a 1 time purchase price instead.


Great App!!! Very efficient!

Good but!

Switching between "group"and "all" causes the software to freeze and crash. Happens every time. iPhone 7+
Otherwise, easily a 5 star.
