Not working for me

I purchased this app and have tried to upload cards and it fails every time. I am on a IPhone X. I would recommend it unless you can show me where I am gong wrong

Pretty good


Maybe it's because I deal with creative types, but most cards need a fair amount of work before they end up in Contacts. Extraneous text or text at right angles throws this app completely (though not surprisingly). The app has real problems with addresses and doesn't appear to have been localized for Australia as it doesn't know what to do with the state. The amount of correction you generally have to do means you could have just entered the data manually in the same time. It's good with numbers though and I suppose eliminates typos. But it's more fun with this app and you get to keep an image of the card (though you can't zoom or scroll without first exporting it to the Camera Roll). I really like the simulated leather look!

Anyway, it's a keeper but some updates to address handling, removing duplicate fields on a merge and enhancements for viewing the saved card would probably see this garner a higher average rating.
