Out of the box works for iPhone 3GS only! See compatibility note below.
Import contact information from business cards directly to your iPhone contacts!
Just take a photo of a business card and a New Contact is added!
Business Card Reader scans and “reads” the picture using ABBYY’s text recognition technology and enters the data into appropriate fields of the iPhone address book.
No more boring manual input of the names, phone numbers, emails and other information from business cards!
Business Card Reader creates complete and accurate contact information on iPhone in a few seconds.
Recognizes English, French, Italian, German and Spanish business cards.
Added Value: In a built-in browser it is possible to make LinkedIn search of a scanned contact and read LinkedIn profile not leaving the program.
Embedded browser uses the same filtering as Safari: if Safari is disabled this app will also turn off the browser.
Business Card Reader is of great value for anyone who communicates with many people in work or personal life. It’s an excellent tool for business professionals, exhibitors at trade shows, exhibitions attendees and sales personnel.
=== Compatibility Note ===
No special equipment is required for using the app on iPhone 3GS since its camera allows to take photo of good enough quality.
If you are using iPhone 2G or 3G, you may need additional gadgets to improve photo quality, such as Griffin Clarifi.
Since iPod Touch doesn’t have built-in camera, it’s possible to recognize business cards only from saved images.
