Cards is a simple and easy to use business card scanner which automagically scans and crops business cards, before pulling out key information, like phone numbers, from them, so you can avoid typing anything.

Just point your camera at a business card - Cards will find the card, crop it, and recognize information on it.

Cards has tons of integrations to let you be more efficient. Scan a card by asking Siri, scan a card from another app by tapping "Add to Cards", or add a scanned business card to Contacts.

Scan your card in Settings, then easily send it back to someone after you scan their business card.

Create and name custom groups of cards to keep them organized, and use the quick search to instantly find what you're looking for.

Cards Plus lets you completely customize the app with a custom theme color, create custom groups of cards, scan the back of cards, and lock your business cards with Touch ID or Face ID.

(Some features may require Cards Plus, a one time payment which unlocks additional features. Cards Plus is not required to use the app.)

Painful to Use and No Features

Just downloaded and used to try and scan 4 business cards. Found crop functionality very painful to use since you have to try and look under your finger/thumb to see what you’re cropping. Also, search doesn’t work and there is no organization once your cards are scanned. They are just sitting there like a bunch of images in a photo album. One other thing I found undesirable is that it seems to want to store the images in my photo library. If I wanted that, I would just take pictures of them. It would be easier to edit them that way as well.

Hey, I’m truly sorry about your bad experience! I’m very aware of these issues and have been working hard to improve the experience.

Cards 1.1 is coming very soon, with fixes to search as well as iCloud Sync and Contacts Sync, which means it no longer backs cards up to your photo library.

As per the crop issue, you can tap near the circle rather than on top of it to move the points - I’m working hard on clarifying this and I’m hoping to make it clearer on the update after 1.1.

Again, sorry for your experience, and I hope Cards 1.1, which is arriving soon, helps with your frustrations.



Search doesn’t work. Developer not responsive

I liked the idea of a simple card scanner. Don’t want monthly subscriptions and integration with other solutions (e.g. Salesforce). Tried this one, looks nice. However, search doesn’t work. Contacted the developer, but no reply!
I’m using the trial version. Will look for something else.

Hey, I’m really sorry for the issues you’re experiencing! I’m aware of bugs with search and it should be fixed within the next update! Integrations with services like Salesforce are frequently requested and I’m looking into it. As for your email, I received it but unfortunately there seems to have been an issue where your email address got hidden. Could you try sending an email to from a different email address so I can help you out there? Thanks and sorry again for your issues!
