    Great app has been very helpful and user friendly

  • Excelente herramienta

    by Maria Talamo

    Siempre quise eñque existiera una forma de pasar la información de las tarjetas de esta forma. Finalmente existe. Recomiendo incluso comprar el avanzado es más completo. Lo único qe ni me parece es que cuesta 10 dol. Al año. Es demasiado costoso.

  • ScanBiz

    by Art Vaark

    This is an excellent time saving app. I have owned it for several years and it just keeps getting better. Well worth the money.

  • The more I use it! The more I like it

    by James Beichner

  • Great!

    by Vanessa Cognard

    For years I have looked to simplify business card capture and this app is an amazingly simple effective tool. Love it !

  • Life saver

    by Crichardslv

    If you're in sales and are constantly adding contacts into you address book, this app saves you time! Take a picture and it adds all the relevant information into your contact list.

  • A fabulous app

    by Don K. -- TCA Member

    This is really a great, great app! Intuitive and does everything. I highly recommend it.

  • Great

    by VAL2915

    Use the app everyday

  • Above expectations

    by Lcacula

    I have used scanners with complicated software to scan cards before - none of them compare to the convenience and to the accuracy of reading that this app offers.

  • Great stuff not easy to navigate

    by Rickcub

    It could be easier to get around but u love him it holds all my contacts

  • Great App

    by John Bandy

    Works great! Should have other options for backing up would be my only suggestion.

  • Economist and owner

    by Heytimbo

    Great app. OCR works well and integrates with Apple and outlook. Buy for staff and recommend.

  • Amazing app

    by Christopher Zorc

    This app has changed the way I enter business card info into my contacts. Be careful when snapping the original card photo and you will be happy with the results every time. Great app!

  • Must have app

    by Azmoosani

    It's like a wallet of business cards, one less thing I have to carry around with me.

  • Sales

    by MSCOL

    So far I love it. Not 100% accurate, even on number, but the effort it takes to verify is nothing compared to the time savings and organization! I add to contacts that then feed to my map program. Awesome

  • Great app!

    by Cob36440

    Worth the price!!

  • CEO

    by Diversitree

    I've tried a lot of business card readers and this one is by far the best!

  • Works for more than Business cards…

    by Ljg--

    This is a great app which works for business cards, letterheads, and other sources of address info. It’s nice to have it add it directly to my address book and then iOS 7 just populates it across all our devices. I’ve used it both on the iPad (3K) and iPhone (5s) and it works great!

  • Technical sales Rep.

    by Mark The Rater

    Cardbiz does a great job putting the information in the correct categories.

  • Great App

    by KHbeans

    Very useful a few bugs here and there but that is mostly from a poor photo and easily changed.

  • Problem with uploading

    by Buntara Long

    My app is not allowing me to be able upload any new business cards.

  • Creepy

    by Values Privacy

    This app just sent me a notification that it "misses" me and wants me to scan more cards. So that means it's keeping track of when I scan a card. Is it also keeping track of the information I'm scanning and sending it somewhere? It's a neat app but sorry I'm uninstalling it now.

  • Bait and switch

    by Tomyer54

    Don't get this app unless you sign up for the Websync for an extra $10.00 a year . Your contacts will periodically be permanently lost if you don't. Very unhappy camper

  • Scanning accuracy needs work

    by DoNot$$$

    Better than having to manually input contact info, but bad scanning accuracy still has you editing many fields which sort of defeats the purpose. WorldCard Mobile has better first time accuracy after testing both on the same business card.

  • Spectacular

    by Catfish Jeff

    A bargain at 10 times the price. My pockets are now empty if other people's business cards

  • Solid effort

    by Pjoneal43

    Works really well. Linked in feature is nice.

  • It works!!

    by TimothyE

    This program basically does all that is promised. Needs some editing on input frequently, but sure beats typing all the stuff in. Also it is easy to use.

  • Great for sales professionals

    by Sorengyrl

    Don't waste time with the Lite if you get a lot of cards. In the days since I bought this, I have had great success with it. I love the "follow up" reminder and LinkedIn features. It is fast and easy, and I've already told five colleagues about it. The price is a steal!

  • Awesome App!!

    by rotorres72

    Best download I ever used!

  • Very helpful!!!!

    by 4shonuff

    Gave me the ability to remove all the cards from my car.

  • Like it

    by Preppy193

    Works well

  • Incredible time saver

    by naveenkoneru

    I have a bunch if biz cards that I was dressing to save in to crm and still worse follow up with them. This app makes it so easy. Very well thought through.

  • Great application

    by Amro13

    It is great it save the time and mostly accurate all the time

  • Very helpful

    by Bay beats love

    I am constantly overloaded with business cards- this really helps me digitize it all in a super convenient way with lots of options for future organization and usage. Productivity boost!

  • Great ap!

    by TheLPMaster8

    Such a helpful app when u have tons on business cards to keep track of.

  • Nice

    by CJ7Heep

    Quick and easy to add to contacts.

  • Turn off auto quick intro

    by psyche808

    Could not find a way to turn off auto quick intro. There should be an option to be able to turn this off easily. I was like to scan business cards not just for networking but also for record keeping.

  • Great business app

    by Konrad Office

    Fantastic app for those who acquire a lot of business cards during travel. No more typing in every card. No more cards to carry home with you. They all get put into the app and then transferred to your address book. Excellent

  • Love it!

    by Carolina Lara

    Don't regret at all, helps me a lot with my business

  • Very useful!

    by Blob3737

    Very useful app. Acceptable errors. Wish it had Chinese language.

  • Crashes Far Too Often

    by Rampage.Maypin

    Crashes right after you take a picture of the card too often. Scanner is only meh.

  • Good App

    by Lulu cat!!!!!!!

    This works well. A lot better than losing cards or not having the card with you when you need it. Make sure you review each line before saving to contacts; some fonts and/or formatting can mess with accuracy.

  • Great program

    by Subgiy6290

    Upgraded from Lite version because the number of cards was growing beyond capability. Worth the cost!

  • Great App!

    by Bob Hooper

    I love this app! I am able to scan, save, and add the transcribed card to my address book quickly!

  • Love it

    by Zach1985

    Quick and easy. Pulls in all of the card data 99% of the time.

  • Great app! Scans accurately.

    by somecrazynickname

    Love this app. It is the best business card scanner I have found for regular cards. It only has difficulty with extremely unusual (swirly, artsy) fonts but otherwise is very accurate. Does a great job of correctly identifying/catagorizing pieces of information. Be sure to move the orange squares in as close as you can to the info for the best results.

  • Awesome app!

    by Ronny Taschner

    Finally I found a way to easily and quickly scan cards, add them to my contacts and throw them away!!!!

  • Great App

    by oldagg77

    I use for all business card input to my address list. Awesome app, great text recognition.

  • Best App Ever

    by The Real Dr. Bob

    Tried a few after dumping paper. This one is the best.

  • Good but buggy

    by Bruss1018

    I like the functionality of the app for sure. However, my app crashes after nearly every scan. If not after each scan than it takes 2 or 3 and crashes. Please fix and I'll be happy giving 5*.

  • ScanBizCard

    by Riveravitz

    This app is great, love it.

  • Great App

    by Bleone

    Worth the download! Very helpful

  • Great APP! Makes my life so easy!

    by Lion Ariel

    Great APP! Makes my life so easy! And I look super cool when I give the guy back his card and Say I got the info ;) They always buy the app right after ;) I should get Commission !

  • Top notch

    by SanTanVally

    Better than the rest.

  • Works great!

    by KW987654321

    Saves a ton of time and keeps me organized. A definite must for anyone in sales or related field.

  • Great App

    by Shopper 3742

    This app has been flawless and has saved so much time and carrying of paper cards. Easy to use as well. Thanks.

  • Works well, crashes some, saves tons of time

    by Cooper007

    Not terrible elegant, and some things take more clicks than necessary. OCR is not terribly accurate, and really needs better intelligence. Despite its issues, this app is still a huge timesaver.

  • Very good!

    by Jerome G.

    A very practical app for archiving your business cards. Transcription has improved! Well-designed 3D swipe-view mode. So many detailed options. The best-valued business card app for the lowest price.


    by PJsaywhat

    Works exactly as described

  • Very useful

    by RBMSCM

    Time consuming if you have a lot of cards but, it's well worth the time to have all the information saved in a digital format. Misses the occasional correct translation. It's not that annoying though and has actually translated correctly some hand written notes that I had made on a few cards. Very useful and will end up being one of the top frequently used apps on my iPhone. Nicely done.

  • Not good

    by bmdubya1

    I downloaded it and it's frankly confusing. UI is cumbersome. Not worth 3.00 you have to sign up for credits? Really? Lame model.

  • Great App, but NEEDS iOS7 Update Please!

    by billn71

    App is great. But it crashes after I complete every card I scan. Please update for iOS7. I bet this would fix it.

  • Owner

    by D-heart

    While I love the convenience, ease and efficiency of this App, I get frustrated in having to re-type data that appears clearly in card photo. Would love it more if this gets corrected; please!

  • Best yet

    by AAIGH

    I was skeptical about all of these type apps, and waited a long time to use it even after I got it. However, it seems to be way out in front of the other guys, and I've started using it pretty religiously.

  • Best Card App Ever!!

    by kylenhuntPDS

    This does everything I ask it to do including setting up new leads in sales force. Thank you.

  • Definitely helps but you have to check everything

    by FishingWithAFly

    First of all pony up the money for the upgraded version. Second, double check EVERYTHING. Every business card is different so stuff can get filed wrong and it can read information incorrectly. But it saves a huge amount of time over typing everything in yourself.

  • Really Good and Useful App

    by Kimberly Uchimura

    This app is easy to use and works great with my Contacts list. I love the way you can shuffle through the cards. The only reason it's not a 5 is that the scan, as good as it is, still only gets about 60% of a card accurately.
