  • Up sell you to death

    By Luke Pell
    Falling in line with a rash of apps that lure you in at a rate then have multiple up sells to actually get the functionality they sold you on. What’s 30 more dollars? What’s another 60 dollars forever access? Insulting really...just put an accurate price on a great app or apple shouldn’t allow the on the platform
  • Annoying prompt to rate

    By Nazibabyonboard
    Would have had 5 but between every single card i scan it pops up a prompt to rate the app, even though I just paid for premium. It has been rated, hopefully it stops interrupting my workflow.
  • Great application

    By Scoot7nswar
    Good and easy to use

    By Pj 333
    I’ve tried other CC apps, this is by far the best!
  • Paid annual subscription

    By Hb2627
    Just downloaded and scanned business cards. This app can't handle simple things like professional designations at the end of names. All the cards I scanned ended up with RN or other last names. The real last name ended up as the middle name. If you have a lot of cards with professional designations after the name, do not buy this app. Image quality is awful too. What a disappointment.
  • Pay to scan and save

    By scan $$$$
    Only need the quick function to scan and save. That shouldn’t cost $8 a month
  • Very easy to use

  • Good, but recommend some features

    I briefly tried ABBYY and CamCard and decided to go with ABBYY because of the customer service and backup support. It’s working pretty well so far. I think they can improve some things. The image and field recognition seems similar to camcard. They each recognized or failed to recognize different information, but one did not out perform the other (my test was only 5 cards). I liked some of the user interface with camcard better, but think I’ll get used to ABBYY just fine. It’s syncing with my google contacts well and seems to link up to websites well. Here are some things I wish were better or added: 1. I wish the edge recognition and text field recognition were better. 2. I wish photo quality were better. 3. The search function isn’t recognizing text in the notes section very well. Example: I made a note about when/where I met several people and then tried to search by a key term I used like “networking “ and it didn’t pull anyone up. 4. It often doesn’t put the business name in caps and has failed to add a space between words in business names several times. 5. It sends i messages instead of sms even when the phone isn’t marked as an iPhone. 6. I wish I could reassign information to other fields easily. For example: the app would recognize text and assign it to something like ‘job title ‘, but that wasn’t accurate. I would like that same information in the notes section instead. There was no easy way to do that. I had to delete the information and re enter it all by hand. 7. That issue is related to this suggestion. In CamCard the app showed me the text that was recognized. I’d love it if this app did the same thing, but also went a step further. It’d be incredibly helpful if it would then allow me to click on the text and assign it to a field. 8. I wish the app allowed me to assign multiple categories to a contact and that those categories were searchable. I like the group feature, but can only assign one group per business card. 9. I’d love to be able to automatically schedule an action for the cards I’m entering. I need to follow up with people, but am going to forget if I don’t keep the card or have a reminder. I’m often entering multiple cards at a time and have notes on them about what I need to do next. I’d love to schedule a reminder or add to calendar function. That way I can truly come home without this pile of paper to deal with. 10. I’d love it if the app auto recognized photos of people and offered to add those to the person so I don’t have to go in separately to crop the business card down to that photo. I think that’s it for now. I’ll be over the moon for this app if these ideas become upgrades. Signed: A New User
  • Amazingly easy to use I’m getting the full version

    By sieteocho78787878
    Thinking this is the best app out there right now for this.
  • Needs better camera

    By WWDA01
    I like the program, but although I have a great camera on my phone the data is almost never correct leaving me to manually type it in.
  • Free version too limited and price excessive

    By asjjtrbfu
    The app does an excellent job recognizing text with only a few problems mostly caused by lighting(reflection) on the card. The address editor is missing the carriage return making it difficult to format addresses. The 10 card limit makes it difficult to properly evaluate, particularly in light of the $29.99 annual subscription price.
  • Many errors

    By Cheechmanwow
    Rarely does this scan a business card without errors
  • Time saver 👍💯

    By pamareo
    Awesome app for business professionals, it looks up people social media page ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
  • Crap

    Crap word recognition. Always has mistake.

  • The best

    By prakashbg
    I like this app the best...5 starr
  • Works great

    By stevopho
    Even if the card is damaged it makes a good guess. Although sometimes you need to manually correct. But these issues only seem to happen with a damaged card.
  • Could use improvements

    By Math1001
    Does not always scan cards great and difficult to change personal information.
  • Great and handy app

    By Chopkins45
    But needs to be able to use Gmail natively to sent cards and contacts. I don’t use iPhone / Apple mail so I cannot use the mail feature there for the 3 star rating.

    By susafran
    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!
  • Wave

    By Buddy044
    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
  • About my Free 1 month premium account

  • 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.

    By chicks73013
    I keep getting an error when I try to export to Salesforce?

    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
