There are many Business Card Reader (BCR) apps in the App Store—some perform well, some do okay, and some are just a waste of time. In developing Card2Contact, we had one goal in mind—provide more value than any other BCR app, period. Card2Contact is packed with premium features—available to you at a great price. And in addition to having a comprehensive set of features, Card2Contact is powered by a world leading OCR engine, yielding high accuracy text recognition with market leading speed. Take a picture of a card or select cards from your camera roll, and Card2Contact will automatically assign the text to the applicable contact fields. Card2Contact also features an innovative “drag-and-drop” user interface that makes changing text assignments easy and fast.

Note: If using an iPhone 2G or 3G, you will need to use an accessory such as the Griffin Clarifi to take adequate quality pictures. Alternatively, you can import pictures taken with a digital camera.

Features include:

*eFile Storage of your Business Cards

Never worry about misplacing a business card again. Now you can digitally store every business card you receive in your iPhone. After you add a contact using Card2Contact, the digital image is stored in an easy to browse “cover flow” view for later reference. Sort your cards by First Name, Last Name, or Company to quickly locate a card.

*Drag-and-Drop User Interface

Modifying text assignments has never been easier. With Card2Contact’s unique drag-and-drop interface, moving text is as easy as touching the text with your finger and dragging it where you want it.

*Batch Processing

Now you can process large quantities of cards simultaneously. Simply save individual cards from your camera roll. Then when you’re ready, you can process all your saved cards at once. Don’t have a iPhone 3GS? No problem. Transfer high quality business card images to your iPod Touch, iPhone 2G or 3G, and then let Card2Contact do the rest.

*Attach Voice and Text Memos to your Business Cards

Never again worry about forgetting key information about the people you meet. Simply take a picture of the person’s business card, and simultaneously add a quick voice or text memo to the card with important points you want to remember about the person. This information is saved for later reference.

*Grab Any Text

This feature allows you to OCR any text from any number of sources for later use. This could include billboards, signs, newspapers, magazines, books, etc. After converting the image to text, you can either copy to your clipboard, or email the text directly from the app.

*Add Picture of Contact

Quickly add a picture of the person associated with the card. This picture will automatically be displayed in your iPhone contacts.

*Send vCards

This feature allows you to select any contact in your iPhone’s contacts, including those you’ve added using Card2Contact, and send them as vCards to your friends or coworkers. A vCard is a special file that contains a person’s contact information. When a recipient receives a vCard, they can open it and add the contact to their address book using programs such as Microsoft Outlook.

Note: Sending vCards from your iPhone using Yahoo Mail is not supported. This is related to Yahoo Mail and is out of our control. Most other popular mail services are supported including Gmail.

IMPORTANT: OCR technology is not perfect, and results are highly dependent on the quality of the image. Under normal conditions, Card2Contact yields very good text recognition, but some manual corrections may be necessary. We currently support English text only.

Lighting makes all the difference

When I first got this app, I didn't get the results I wanted and was a little disappointed. I then remembered reading that I needed good lighting to get a good picture. Once I had direct lighting and no shadows, the OCR read everything on my business cards. Now I'm happy with the results, and the price is great too. Learn from my mistake, if you're not getting the results you want, try it again in even better lighting.

5/5 stars

A very intuitive feature packed business card OCR app… at a great price

I have used many other business card OCR apps and found this one to have the right combination of the features and at an affordable price. The app is fast in all respects – fast to initialize, navigate between pages and most importantly the OCR bit. The drag and drop for moving fields around and the method of cropping the card is very clever. Also love the feature of the business card rolodex and the random text OCR. As with all OCR apps, taking the picture correctly is very important – I highly recommend reading the help text. Good stuff AppFlurry!!

5/5 stars

Nice app for the money. Accurate for me.

I have used this with both the iPhone 3GS and iTouch and both have worked great. The accuracy of the OCR usually gets me 95% of the way there leaving me with some minor edits. Would not expect any better from any OCR tool. Like another reviewer said, good lighting does make a big difference. What I like most about this app is the extra features you get for the price. I especially like the ability to digitally save my cards and view the actual card in a cover flow view. The only downside I see to this app compared to some of the others is that it does not have some of the bells and whistles to ensure you take a good picture with the right orientation. I'm guessing this may be why some have not had good results. But what it lacks in a few of these features it makes up in price, which is why I'm giving it 5 stars.
