  • Should be free

    Make it free
  • I love it.

    By Regilucia Smith
    Hands down... this app is easy, fast, efficient.
  • One at a time

    By Lion Irons
    It appears you can only MOVE a contact out of the application one card at a time. Cards can be filtered into groups and one can make multiple selections but all it appears one can do with a selection is move it to a different group within the application. No exporting groups to contacts, emails or Excel. There may be a way but I can’t find it.

    Love it, accurate first most often
  • Needs to be better about recognizing text

    By Long time Verizon customer
    When I first used, it was great-few errors. But now it seems like there are more errors in reading.
  • ABBYY BCR- version 8.5.9+

    By CraigJ.Edgin
    The developer responded and asked if I wanted to update my review-I tried to contact, but ABBYY BCR link was dead. Still- avoid this app. decent app, yet to really use this application you will need to subscribe to its “plan”. This is why I do not recommend ABBYY BCR. The plans start at (only) monthly $7.99-then add on from there. If you like pay-as-you go, then spend away.
  • Not quite there

    By rggpr
    It’s very fast with the scan and OCR but the accuracy is really bad. Also, I wish it would sync with my Apple Address Book. That fact that it doesn’t and isn’t accurate, makes me keep on looking for a better business card scanner.
  • Does ok

    By Eajackson
    I haven’t tried to export to excel yet.
  • Worst app ever!

    By ELyssa™
    Can’t read English; can’t be uploaded from the United States; and I can’t figure out if I’m being charged for an app that I can’t use.
  • Not Perfect But Fine

    By pnoble
    I ingested around 200 old business cards in maybe 2-3 hours. The app crashed 5-6 times but to no ill effect. Parsing of card content was sometimes inconsistent for the same card. Character recognition was by no means perfect. Also doesn’t seem to flag duplicates. But all in all it worked like a charm and since my personal use is purely archival and it stores the original image to refer to it is just fine. Better than fine. A few hundred cards to go and then I will never store another and will return from trips and shows card free!! Just two incredibly stupidly designed business cards out of 200 failed to ingest! And one company’s graphics refused to photograph without enormous effort. Importing into iOS address book, into SalesForce, into Excel is huge if you need. Also knowing where and when you ingested the card is terrific. Great app in terms of utility value. Fair subscription cost. Chose on account of an independent comparative review and it’s very high App Store rating.
