  • Great card scanning app!

    By Alchemy 103
    Simple, does a great job and worth the subscription fee.
  • Favorite app I’ve downloaded in past 2 years!

    I can’t believe how seamless and useful this app is. Virtually every time I am shocked and thrilled at how quickly it reads and enters all the information from business cards. It is silly we still have business cards in today’s digital society however with this app I believe the cards are relevant again
  • Pop up crazy app

    By HRT 851
    I like the capability of storing business cards, but I don't like how every time I take a pic of a card three ads or pop ups occur wanting me to upgrade from the free version. Also the free version only allows you to store 10 business cards.
  • Needs improvement

    It's a lot faster than entering contacts manually!
  • Disappointing

    By EZPass1
    Decided to try this despite the negative reviews. Unfortunately the first 4 cards I tried to input ended up being misread on most categories. It read “MD” after a doctor’s name as the last name and their actual last name as their middle name. MD was changed to “Md”. One doctor also had an MBA. It was listed on the card as “John A. Smith MD, MBA” all on the same line. The MBA ended up at the front of his title way down below the address. Another address was recognized and put in the correct field but the “1”s were read as lowercase “L”. Address looked like: lll South llth Street i.e. LLL South LLth Street. The font on the card had serifs so it should have recognized the 1s as 1s. Tried a different card from a totally unrelated company. It misread the company name as an address which was listed as “F 0, Independence, Bronx 10479. The company is located in Medford,NY. Independence is part of the name. Bronx is NOWHERE on the card, nor is that number (not sure about the last 2 digits but you get the idea). Taking too much time to correct errors on each card and it’s already starting with the ads to upgrade to premium version.
