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. Hold the device right above the card. Keep the card aligned with BCR viewfinder edges and adjust iPhone/iPad positioning so that the card fits the screen size.
4. Tap the screen to take the picture.
5. After the recognition is done, you can check the results.
6. Tap Save to add the contact into your iOS address book.

I use this application often, and it does a good job working as advertised. Business cards come in many different forms and formats, and it works at a consistent level.
Unfortunately, I find myself correcting almost every captured card to some degree, due to small errors. It's not annoying enough to stop using the app, but I hope the developers stick with it and continue to update and improve.
Works very well
Didn't think I'd use it that often, but Business card reader pro actually saves me a lot of time, and works about 95% of the times with complete scanning accuracy. I also like the Salesforce integration, since we use Salesforce on a daily basis in the company. Totally worth the money.
I find BCRPro does a poor job in recognizing characters and interpreting the nature of field contents, especially country, company name, and job title.
I also make a habit of adding notes when I SBA card, but with this product, I have to add a Notes field to each contact first, then type the actual notes. No way to make it a default part of each new record.
These two drawbacks greatly offset benefit of scanning vs just typing contact info directly.
