What's New in Version 2.1.0
(1) bug fixes
(2) support 64-bit
Not very good in my tests
Some months ago I tried this app and it failed miserably. I left it on my phone and would periodically try it with different cards. Some were MUCH worse than others, but all had major errors that were unacceptable and required extensive correction (multiple fields had errors). I finally gave up and deleted the app to make space.
Recently, I stumbled across another app called World Card. Wanting to scan in a stack of business cards, I decided to try it. I couldn't believe the excellent results. Being cheap and already owning SamCard, I thought maybe I'd try it with the same exact card in the same environment. I couldn't believe how bad SamCard performed. The results were similar to my initial test of SamCard (mostly gibberish), but seeing it in comparison with something that worked really drove home how bad this app is on my phone. I am permanently deleting SamCard out of my account. If you find this app doesn't work for you, keep trying.
It does what it says!
Simple to use. Converts the card into a contact on your phone. Much easier, quicker, than entering it by hand.
It gives you a camera screen, you point it at the card, you frame it, you push the button and it's already entered line by line in your contacts.
You may choose to edit one or two things in the contact design and layout, but that's it.
Saves me time.
Perfect card scanner
I've seen services like this charging a lot of money to clients, like if you used to scan cards every day of your life.
If you get a business card and want a quick, cheap, good option to enter that info into your contacts, this is the app to go. I've tried at least six different apps for this and this one rocks.
No need to pay $4 a month or so to Evernote to let you do this.
