    so cool and useful
  • Works but too limited

    By Notformee
    I had no problem with the apps functionality but you can only load 10 cards without a monthly subscription. Anyone who even considers looking up an app to store business cards already has more than ten cards to store or they wouldn’t need it in the first place. $25 a month is outrageous. One time maybe but I think for $300 a year I can come up with a better solution.
  • Limitations

    By Gene:/
    It capped and limited usage of the primary function of the app.
  • Some bugs, no Outlook import

    By Markhl2
    Support is very helpful. I scanned 25 cards with the app. It mostly works well and saves me time over typing in many contacts. I like that it flags characters that may not have been correctly converted. It always correctly scanned phone numbers and email addresses because they are usually in a plain font. Issues. 1: The card-recognition works very fast and may take a blurry image that is hard to scan. I put the card on a well-lit desk. Then I slowly moved the iPhone towards the card until the app took a photo. 2: ABBYY offers export to Excel, but the format is incompatible with Outlook, so I cannot import the file into Outlook. 3: ABBYY parses a qualification (PMP or PhD) as a last name. 4: When I save the contact to Yahoo Mail, I often find that ABBYY has parsed the address wrongly, putting the city and state as part of the street address. For example, the street address is “1 Main St Anytown VA 12345” and the city and state fields are blank. In Yahoo I must move each word to the right field. 5: ABBYY adds words to the address that are not on the card. For example, an address in Maryland was flagged as Los Angeles Terminal Island. In ABBYY, I remove those words.
  • Scam?

    By Bridesmade
    The “feedback” tab doesn’t work. I paid $30 for a subscription service to help manage my business contacts. There’s no access to customer service and I can’t access the feature to export to Excel which is why I paid for this in the first place. Information population is poor, and I end up needing to manually type in contact details anyway.
