HOW TO GET GOOD RECOGNITION RESULTS
1. Place the business card on a flat surface.
2. Good lighting is key: bright desk lamp or direct sunlight are necessary.
3. Make sure the camera is focused on the business card.
4. Hold the device right above the card. Keep the card aligned with BCR viewfinder edges and adjust iPad positioning so that the card fits the screen size.
5. Tap the screen to take the picture.
6. After the recognition is done, you can check the results.
7. Tap Save to add the contact into your iOS address book.
• iOS 4 and later
• Works best on the iPad with autofocus
• On original iPad and iPad 2 the app can be used to recognize business cards from images saved in the photo library.
What's New in Version 2.2.6
Bug fixes and performance improvements
Great Concept. Does NOT function.
I was very excited about this app, however upon trying to scan several business cards and connect with LinkedIn I find that the LinkedIn connection does not work at all. I am unable to login despite entering the correct information. This app is useless until this is corrected. Also the scan is somewhat lower quality than the camera app provided by the native.
I want a refund. This is highway robbery.
NOT WORTH IT
This app does not translate the business card to text well @ all. It comes across horrible and with lots of incorrect information. I can enter the info in faster by typing it rather than taking a picture and having to correct every text field.
I have tried to scan several cards today with my Ipad, take the terribly focused card , then focused , and having issues with a poor read time after time after time. Tried on various cards etc.
