  • Pretty good, headed in the right direction

    By jaimerlefebvre
    The OCR is pretty great. Love that it retains a digital copy of the card you just scanned. LinkedIn integration is a nice feature as well. No complaints with the app. The website needs more features though. Ability to sync with or Ability to export as .vcf. While it’s great to have these contacts backed up to cloud storage, it’s a dead end from there. Export to excel is not nearly good enough. Take the next step guys! Keep up the good work.
  • Text recognition

    By Garfire
    So far text recognition is not very accurate. I’ll check my settings
  • Awesome CSV export!

    By 1304981304991
    I wanted a simple thing: accurate biz card recognition that could easily export to excel. This app delivered! Really useful product.
  • BCR Pro

    By tudesweeda
    An awful program! The OCR is terrible. I had to manually-input every card, as the program did not accurately recognize any business card.
  • Sync issues

    By Asjdidkcjf
    Doesn’t sync to contacts
  • #FAIL

    By Mr Toner
    Sadly, the app fails, not in the recognition of physical addresses, but because - It adds extraneous information to the address that is not on the card - It transfers the address to the local address book as a single, concatenated field (street) instead of separate street, city, state, ZIP Code fields. As a result, I spend an inordinate amount of time editing the contact record for accuracy. Not only has this not been corrected in over two years, but support fails to acknowledge this is an issue or even respond to the report.

  • Horrible ocr

    By Dustin Amundson
    If you want a very high priced app that you have to proofread every scan you found it. OCR can’t even get ave. (Avp) correct in an address field.
  • Are You Kidding!!!

    By Pacin
    I just paid $40 for this app with great reviews and I can not use it until I agree to let you a) send me advertisements b) collect and process information about my personal/business use of this product c) agree to your terms and privacy policy. Have you lost your mind(s)!!! REFUND MY MONEY this is not a free app. I would give this a zero star if I could.
  • Very Useful - Some Annoying Bugs

    By Rastawolf13
    Using on an iPhoneX - I use English and Japanese, and wish I could turn off English when scanning Japanese cards. Does well scanning both languages, but the app makes more mistakes when both languages are turned on. English is always on by default. - Annoying app crashes when editing addresses. Most often, while modifying an address, the country selector will suddenly be displayed, and after selecting a country, the app will crash and will need to be rebooted. As verifying data in multiple languages is a tedious task, these random crashes cause significant reduction in productivity. - Add group button doesn’t work when entering data. To add groups, must visit the settings page. - Want the ability to make subgroups of a group. Haven’t tried exporting the data yet, but looking forward to giving it a try. This app has lot of potential. Thank you

    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.
  • 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.

  • Annoying demands for reviews

    By mcbakewl
    Cannot access app without being directed here for a review. Would get at least 4 stars without that. Can't even send a review. Essentially locked out of the app since the last update. Negative stars?
  • Why

    By Bfolse15
    I just want to use the app that I paid for but I cannot because of this review
  • Poor OCR

    By SLCOZ
    OCR capability doesn’t work very well. Still a lot of manual editing.
  • Doesn’t seem very accurate

  • Love this App

    By MMcGinjis
    Helps me easily keep track of new contacts and export data to Excel to be compiled with my existing customer, contact and marketing lists
  • Unbelievable

    By Joey Meloni
    Hands down this is one of the greatest apps you will ever have if you meet many contacts on the daily. This app has changed the way I organize new contacts I meet at the job site. I would recommend this to anyone. In fact I tell more and more people all the time about this app when they hand me a business card right away.
  • Love it!!!

    By MJohnsey
    You never loose a card when you save it in the app!!!

    Thx for nice app.
  • Great business tool

    By DShamie
    I love the app. Wish it could read cards a little better. I suggest it should Allow us to file same card to more than one category.
  • Very nice application

    By Alexmarkzag
    Still require limited amount of manual input.
  • DO NOT BUY 2018

    By Hdisbekdjqldbriebfkakn
  • Yay

    By Bigheadmayday
    It works really good. The multiple business card search options is what I like best. The automatic recognition works well enough.
  • Some bugs still!

    By The Glue Guy
    Sometimes it doesn't recognize words for spelling.
  • Fantastic App 268 contacts!!!!!

    By NancyAz
    I volunteer with many groups. I also have a business and friends from different groups. This app is the only way I can keep all my contacts in one place but divided among the various groups where I know them! Of all the apps I've ever owned, this has to be my all time favorite! I love the fact that every few months I can go in and back everything up. This also makes life so easy when I upgrade my cell phone and need to move my contacts over!
  • Great app!!!

  • fairly well

    By Reader Tr
    Generally the app cannot read better than free apps. Recognition of business cards improved but still not enough. Still needs to be improved. Cannot synchronize with Apple ICloud. It is not safe.

  • Awesome

    By BlairG
    I use this app all the time, it’s great for keeping contacts when you exchange cards with someone. And it’s gotten better over time. Now it recognizes card boundaries and takes the picture automatically
