    Fast fast fast! Well worth the money in time savings
  • New User, Not Intuitive

    By etienstar
    I just paid $40 for this app and isn’t only mediocre. The first card I scanned it made the persons title their name and now that I fixed I can’t figure out how to add a title. A couple more cards in and more errors. Plus, I’m still trying to figure out how to fix my own card which it asked me to scan after I entered the second card. There is a feature you can sms a card to someone, but it’s just ugly text that is sent, not a contact. Not super happy so far and not sure why this app has 4.6 stars. I’d say find a free option, should work just as well.
  • Could be better

    By ASK1423
    This app has great features that other apps do not offer. I like being able to search them on LinkedIn, save their photo, and export my contacts into an excel file. However, this app can do better with the address function. If the address isn’t correct, I have to make a new address and delete the original because it will not save my edit, or it will mix the state into the street address. Additionally, once I do get the right address and export to an excel file, the state, street, and zip columns are never accurate in the file. It’s very frustrating. Have you thought about making specific fields when inputting the address on the app instead of one long line? One card will work, while the other card from the same company won’t. I just don’t get it. Also, I can’t download the app on my desktop because it’s a windows, and my phone is an apple product and it shows there’s no device found. In order to get the app on my desktop, I’ll have to pay for the app again..? No. Again, this app has better features than other apps, but I don’t know if it’s worth $35.
  • Really Frustrating!

    By Imasuperstr
    I feel like I just got ripped off because I just paid $40 for this app and I’m trying to scan my first card and edit the details for it. Every time I try and update the address it makes me select the country and then closes the app and doesn’t save it! I’ve done this 3 times now. I’m not impressed.
  • More of a waste or time than a time saver

    By disappointedbat
    I still have to enter so many pieces of information manually. I might as well do it all manually without an app on my laptop
  • Works great when it doesn’t crash. (Update)

    By AbominableBouwman
    App works awesome! It grabs info well and it’s formatted super well. Easy to access and not cluttered. It keeps crashing when I try to delete a number from a contact... ————Update—————— After the developers reached out the issue stopped happening and I seem to be unable to recreate the issue. Since then I haven’t had the app crash or any other problems. App is still great for separating my work and personal contacts.
  • So far so good on all the OCR apps!

    Will update soon with more information as I continue to use the service.
  • My Pick

    By Mr Toner
    My former, positive review stands; however, I am removing a star because the OCR for physical addresses is so bad. Time and time again the app swaps address parts around and adds city names that aren’t appropriate. Earlier this week a contact I scanned was given four city names, yet the card had only one. I’ve contacted support repeatedly over the last year with no response and no improvement. ———————— ABBYY has a long history in the optical character recognition field and that shows in ABBYY Business Card Reader. The app has excellent text recognition and is one of the easiest of apps in this category to navigate. ABBYY BCR allows you to save an image of the back of the card and you can add a picture of the card’s owner, too. Adding a card is easy: the app detects card edges and snaps the picture automatically. My only major complaint for this app is the four-tabbed detail view. Seeing all the information for a contact can take several taps. Other areas of the app could be tightened up, as well. Some items I'd like to see: - Send vCards by text message, in addition to the existing email message - Format email messages to look nicer (admittedly a minor issue) - Tap to text, in addition to the existing tap to call - Move the view of the back of the card to the same tab as the front - Make "Placement" a setting to enable/disable (and rename it) and allow the user to correct and/or name the location (with the name of the event) - Include the creation date—that, along with the location the card was scanned, gives some indication of the event - Save a card image to photos at a later time, instead of all or none All in all, though, this is a great app that I use daily.
  • Constantly have to edit the information

    By jurni1126
    In general, the app is very easy to use, but I think the recognition could be improved.
  • The export to Salesforce function does not work

    By export doesnt work
    And they charge $10 extra for a feature that doesn’t work. I’ve contacted support and they don’t provide a straight answer no return VMs. I’m not pleased.
