    There don’t seem to be any apps at all that do all of the obvious things one would need in a Business Card Scanner. I had about 100 cards to scan and tried this one from ABBYY because of the good reviews. I also purchased the 1 year Pro Subscription ($29.99) to unlock some additional features, but it came up well short of my needs and I ended up resorting to Excel and managing my card contacts manually. Good: Fairly smooth interface(s). Card images were created easily, but OCR worked much better on my iPhone 7 than on my iPad Air 2. Manually editing fields was not too bad. OCR and field identification was about 75% accurate overall. Info easily synchronized to other iDevices. Needs work: Cannot manually add a contact without their business card. (You can create Your Own Business Card manually.) Once a card image has been placed in their cloud (for access on other devices) the card image can not be changed, so an initial bad image just stays there. The Export to CSV format (only available for the Web Interface) does not export all fields! Mine neglected to export the Business Name! The Web/Cloud and iOS interfaces are not remotely similar. Many features are available on just one of these interfaces. (I worked with their tech support to be sure that I understood these issues.) There may be other ABBYY apps that solve some of these problems, but it is impossible to figure that out from ABBYY descriptions and pricing.

    Have not had to make very many edits of cards I scan including cards with a lot of small categories including twitter account names
  • It’s fast!

    By Rome M.
    Not like a lot of card readers that leave you to do a lot of editing. Captures all information with very minimal work after.
  • Nice Concept, Terrible card reader

    By DHaitien

  • Pretty Darn Good

    Love using it, not excited about the cost. Maybe wouldn’t feel that way if the recognition was a little better.
