Great card reader app and easy to use
By far one of the best card readers out there. Nice interface with CRM's. I like the fact that it's been updated now with the vCard piece and the iOS fixes. This is my new Rolodex. Just took a while to scan everything. Nice that they have more languages for those of us with international contacts.
The update is good and the inclusion of other languages makes it more promising. Moreover, this app lets you capture your business card and retrieve the contact information transferring it to your contacts app. It recognizes the card and retrieves the information easily. So, it is a useful app to have.
Business Card Reader Pro is definitely the best business card scanning app. I’m very happy with the accuracy, even for strangely shaped business cards.
I also recommend to use Cloud + web editing, since these features add additional layers of efficient contact management.
