  • Tricky app to use

    By This Guy Is Aware
    Middling OCR, no direct link to gmail contacts
  • Awesome App

    By anarose2
    Love how easy it is to just photo the card and all information is transferred over with little or no editing needed. Great job
  • It’s Been a Disaster

    By M from Boston
    Poor at recognition, adding cities not listed on the card, can’t figure out where to place the state & zip code... I’m sorry that I bought it.
  • Wow

    By Chris-Cuun
    This App Is A MUST HAVE!
  • Better than others I’ve tried

    By CGA-SF
    Has trouble recognising foreign names (in Roman script) and regularly confuses titles (eg. M.D.) as a last name, placing the last name in the middle name section, so cut and paste is needed every time
  • There Has To Be Something Better

    By Maddi Bleu
    Day two using this app and it seems to be hit or miss. Some cards scan right away - if they have a basic design. Colors, graphics, fancier fonts seem to throw this app off and you have to take the shot manually. My bosses bring back hundreds of business cards monthly. They paid for the Premium service and I think they wasted their money. I'll be searching for something more accurate and efficient. 1/4/2019 *UPDATE* App scans a greater volume of cards but recognition accuracy/quality still leaves much to be desired. I must have submitted too many recognition quality complaints because I no longer can. Fine for cards with minimal graphics & colors, and sans serif style text/fonts.
  • So easy

    By cincyeyedoc
    This app is great. So far no issues. Just emptied out 12 business card from my George Costanza wallet.
  • Very confusing and expensive- with recognition getting worse instead of better

    By zennV
    I used to like abbyy, but after they upgraded the version, the reader confuses company names with person’s name quite often. I end up typing the card quite often...
  • A lot of trouble scanning company names

    By LJSchafer
    Good at phone numbers but company names and emails are often missing letters or have multicolored letters even though the business card is clearly black and white
