    I guess if you don’t buy their Premium package it doesn’t work. There is no “free” here. I’ve downloaded cards but they don’t save!

    Great work
  • Ok

    By CatCli
    Takes clear pictures but doesn’t translate the info very accurately.
  • Easy to use

    By sophie._.8
    I enjoy how efficiently this app gathers all the data from the business card and stores it in your phone. Sure, it requires manual corrections, but it works well.
  • Finally

    By jodybrat
    Easy to use and adds to contacts as well.
  • Business card reader

    By user A 300
    It is very inaccurate, it reads License #’s as incorrect phone numbers and has trouble with color changes in name or font. Thanks
  • 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

  • This App works

    By Milos Nenipravda
    I have used many other cars scanning apps and this one so far is the best.
  • More taps and less accuracy

    By RichardLee54
    I downloaded the app and immediately scanned my business card. The pic looks fine. The details are a mess. I needed to to modify each entry. The simplest detail to have converted correctly would have been the email address- and the app failed get it right. What a mess.
  • Solid app

    By Dcal32
    Happy so far sometimes the app closes
  • George Jenn

    By Geo Jenn
    Great app
  • Storage

    By boxster99jfh
    Only allowed to store 10 cards. Forced to pay extra if you have more cards you are going to save. Who has only ten business cards?
  • The best

    By oswaldo2021
    I’m very happy I give you 10 stars
  • App awesome

    By JohnEsch
    Works very good
  • Good but not great

    By donjbay
    Most features of this app are great, and the recognition is more accurate than other card scanning apps. The main downfall has to do with the text, navigation and email ‘buttons’ or lack thereof. ABBYY would do well to adopt the more user friendly interface of CamCard, when the most used features have buttons on a banner above the card info, so you can quickly call,text, email or load the directions to the address in a navigation app of your choosing. For navigation, simply seeing the pin on a map within the app is mostly useless for navigation purposes, and ultimately renders this app ineffective holistically. Please address this, I paid for the premium features not realizing this, and will ultimately switch to CamCard for its more user friendly interface/functionality.
  • Salesforce

    By chicks73013
    I keep getting an error when I try to export to Salesforce?
  • Fast, efficient, comprehensive

    By 0547bcl
    Great way to organize my business cards. Keeps the card and makes an entry into my contacts.
  • Much better than carrying a notebook full of cards

    By lost ages
    Tried various ways to carry cards and my cell phone is the best
  • Amazing product

    By MarlonBrando2018
    Easy to use!!

    By Sp2775

  • Great

  • Billing

    By rocky catala
    I try to cancel my free trial and had no way to do it
  • Cool .... should price

    By still workin' on it
    Cool app! should price it as a one time fee and then charge service rates on the more advanced database options.
  • Decent app

    By andersonj6
    I like the app and it’s better than others I have used. Export to SF is a nice feature. Still, keeps crashing while updating business card info.. doesn’t save, just closes. Confident they will fix the bugs, would recommend.
  • Very Organized!

    By Jean. T
    I have been looking for a organize app can quickly store all my business contact since I have too many client and vendor’s card flying around. This is really helpful!
  • Love this app!!

    By Andy Els

  • Card reader

    By Flissy's
    Worse than useless I ended up entering every card manually
  • Wondeful

    By Souvik Aswad
    This app has been so helpful to me! I do a lot of meetings and need to save many business cards. Great engineering on the backend I must say. Very accurate as well.
  • Great App

    By WordSlanger
    Not always accurate, but much faster than typing it all in myself. I finally have something to do with all those cards that aren’t in my contacts yet!
  • New User

    By ASpencer2677
    Just started entering 1st few cards so this initial impression is favorable with the ease of editing compared to the visual capture, cropping of initial photo of Card also helpful in excluding non-relevant info. I particularly like the ability to specify groups for each entry Will update review when I attempt to access data via IOS Contacts and Cloud files to share with colleagues Hopefully more will be revealed! I need help with printing excell spreadsheets on a Mac of my Card Holder Files The data is spread over quite a few pages is there a template for this application?
  • respect

    By fotlisartegi

  • Great app

    By Quakegt
    Easy to use
  • Terrible app

    By jeo516
    I just opened the app and all my cards are gone.
  • Poor

    By nb94020
    Hard to use, hard to get data out
  • Info on app site

    By Inch1962
    I cannot state clear enough information was posted on the App when you looking at it to see if it something you want. I think it is ridiculous to charge that amount for something you can do yourself by taking a photo with the business card and putting it into an album. Some of us are on fixed incomes due to physical limitations, these people have a lot of business cards from their doctors. Perhaps you could offer part of the app for free to hold 30 cards to put all their doctors cards using the app it could save somebody’s life. So if somebody has some kind of a medical problems and and needs emergency they would look in your phone for any information on doctors that you have on the phone .
  • Only thing I don’t like...

    By Kimi45
    Unfortunately, there is no way to take previously scanned business cards off of a desktop and directly import them online to your account. I have many business card I have already scanned that are available on my desktop. You are not able to login to this app on a desktop and drag business cards over for importation and synchronization. 😟
  • I can not manual type in a name without a business card

    By The shiznit.

    By Mjackal845
    Great text recognition, super easy to use.
  • Terms and conditions

    By Juggalox
    I do not agree to a third-party pushing advertising upon me just because. I do not agree with giving this app additional access.
