Customer Reviews

Magic app, an invaluable business tool

This app does everything I need to keep my contacts organized and up to date and the photo scanner works like magic. It even scans cards with notes written on the front. I tried it for free, hit the card scan limit and immediately went to the premium version. It is more expensive than other apps but as a busy professional with tons of business cards coming my way it is awesome. No more wooden boxes full of business cards. If I could give it six stars I would.

Works better than others

I have tried a few apps for reading business cards and this surely works better than others. Still need to scan two or three times on some cards to get it to work or manually fill in info - but it works well most of the time


I don't understand the negative comments. This app works great. I remembered often times receiving someone business card and misplacing it. Now all I have to do is scan via my smart phone and I have my associates and clients info. And I am activist for saving the trees.
