Amazing app!

I was amazed when I stumbled upon this app! The amount of features that popped up the second I opened this app, amazing. I have to say It saves me a lot of space considering the amount of business cards I have to keep up with, the app saves me so much time from me brushing through the cards on my desk to missing it and having to go through it again, well this app allows me to find the right person I need first time around and with the touch of a button! I tell you what; this app is definitely worth every single cent! This app accurately reads the card and saves the details and automatically adjusts the image so it isn’t blurry which can save you time from taking multiple images, it has easy to follow detailed instructions on how to use this app so if you’re new to the iPod, iPhone or iPod it doesn’t matter the instructions are easy to follow. Another feature I love about this app is how it neatly scans the card you want and recognizes the text with ease! It doesn’t matter if the image is distorted it has a feature to Un-distort any Image! So my overall impression of this app? Absolutely love it and I would highly recommend it to other people, there are so many features to this app I am still yet to discover more amazing features! Keep up the great work PenPower Technologies!


Great idea. Nicely executed. Room to improve.

All doubts about the capabilities of this app were quickly dismissed after the first hour of putting it through its paces. This is one app that Apple should ship with the iPhone and iPod Touch. Just brilliant.

I was stunned to see how quickly and accurately it parsed details from physical business cards into the iPhone's contacts database. Field-by-field, the app automagically drops details from business cards into the correct section - including website URL and email address details. Even the company logo can be selected and added. It also retains a copy of the acquired card image to build a natty electronic version of a 'Rolodex'. Nice.

I managed to get it to slip up twice - both with (ugly) business cards which featured curvy, stylised fonts. It did its best, but 'o', 'c', 'b' & 'd' all got a little bit muddled with the OCR. But just 2 cards in 56 (wildly varying designs) is still an impressive result and misreads are easily corrected.


the best

ok, maybe its naive to say its the best, because i haven't tested all of them, but i tested 3 different free business card ocr, and not only is this one the best, but it has anti shake, and it allows you to crop and RE-RECOGNISE certain parts of the business card, this is a very useful feature that non of the other two ocr had. in terms of accuracy, with proper lighting, i think its "almost" 98% accurate for me so far, and i tested it on business cards with very small writing using a 3Gs. There are not many other features, but what it does, it does very well. The ability to re-recognise parts of a card, reassign this new recognised text to any field, i think this feature alone sets this app apart from the rest, and it allows mistakes to be rectified quickly and painlessly...

i would definately recommend this app...
