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 iPhone/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.

Customer Reviews

Fast and Convenient

Love the app. Really saves time and does a pretty respectable job of character recognition. Wish the interface would allow for notes to be entered for a contact at the point of scanning.

Very good

Excellent card reader with easy to use UI. Don't know why some of the others are more popular.

Best out there

That's the best business card reader out there from the ones I've tested. As simple as that.
