Syncing problem, pending contacts, and linking wrong contacts-Update

Initially I liked this app. It was a great way to upload someone's card and there were minimal mistakes. Additionally people are more willing to let you take a picture of their card than take their last card.

I have stored up a significant amount of cards in my career and I decided to take the time out of my busy day to have an electronic rolodex. However, after uploading all of my cards, I seem to have crashed the app. It stated that there is a syncing problem and gives me a website to go to to troubleshoot. The website is not a valid site. My contacts are still pending, I assume... I am not sure if they will ever be finalized. If the system cannot manage uploading a significant amount, there should be a disclaimer or instructions to that point. I really don't want to individually delete each upload then reupload in small batches at a time until they are finalized. Sad, I am going to a conference later this year and was going to use this, but I am not sure if it is reliable...

Additionally, there seems to be a problem in that names that are not similar at all are being linked from my phone account to the card.

UPDATE-My pending problem is fixed, and the linking contacts is fixed, however the syncing problem still exists. What do I do now?

Love it, makes workflow easy and works as promised, minus one tiny flaw.

I absolutely love this app! NO MORE TYPING IN CONTACTS AT THE END OF YOUR DAY! This app has saved me countless hours, as I have recently changed jobs and needed to import all of my contacts information into my new email system. Since I have most everyone's business card, this was almost effortless. Also, on a day to day basis, I am meeting people, and I no longer have to spend the end of my day inputting all my contacts info into outlook.

The ability to one click connect on linked-in is an incredible feature and perfect for buidling your contact database.

The only flaw I see with this app is that itneeds a better sorting option to view recently uploaded contacts. I'm now up to over 100 contacts in this app (within a few days) and need the ability to quickly view those that were inputted within a certain time frame or as "new". without having to scroll through the alphabetical list. I see that they do have a bar that specifys "new!" that hovers the photo of a new contact before you click on it, but you have to scroll through all your contacts to find them. If Cardmunch could solve this one feature problem (querying), then this app would be 5 star plus!

Challenging to say the least

Unfortunatly this has been one of the most challenging app regarding functionality. I have had to "Delete" and 'Reinstall" this application about 10 to 12 times in the past 2 months. And as of now, this app is currently not loading when I want to access it. Good thing is, It is not the end of the world when it comes to me saving business card information, but it sure made it easier to have all the information and access to view the cards available when in conversation with business partnersand unfortunatly I have stopped reccomending this program due to my own personal issues with it, and am affraid to suggest to my colleagues.
If someone at CarMunch/LinkedIn is actually reading this, please take some time to make the proper programming adjustments, and please, please, if you could add to option to share card information as you had in the previous version, that would be great! Although I do understand how this program has taken off and how well people have perceived this program, I recognize that rapid growth of this app download at times slows down the reprogramming, performance and functionality of such.
I, as well as many users that truly enjoy this app can say, "We are patiently awaiting an up-grade of this program". Good Luck CardMunch programmers!
