Ratings and Reviews

Very impressive


Tried this out to see if it was worth paying for the full version. Very impressed! The three business cards I tried it on were all laid out completely differently. Two were very non-standard and one had a weird font. But this app interpreted them each with about 95% accuracy. I had to edit a couple of characters on two and fill in a missing field on one. But really that is no big deal and less than I expected. All in all I was amazed how well it performed. And pleasantly surprised how well it integrated with my contacts: both merging new details off the card with an existing contact, and the very convenient feature of allowing me to specify contact group(s) while importing. Seriously considering buying the full version.

[Disclaimer: the app author randomly contacted me and asked me to try it out and write a review. I don't know him at all. This is an honest review.]

Not happy.... anymore.


Rating: 4 stars for app and 0 stars for customer focus.

I've had the lite version app for ages and was very happy with it and found it to be pretty accurate most of the time.

It appears there's been a change made recently and i can only scan one card a week. This was not the case before and I'm disappointed that those of us with the app already installed haven't been given a change to upgrade either for free or at a reduced price. The full version is $7.99 which isn't cheap for an app and given its not completely accurate I think it is over priced.

Very disappointed you haven't thought about your customers......

Nice to try before buy...


7.99 is not big deal, but I prefer trying beforehand. Look like this app is good at business card scanning... will think about buying full version.
