  • Perfect for what I need! (Japanese/English) Aug 3, 2020

    By kasiamich
    I looked at a bunch of apps, and finally decided on this one. I am quite satisfied! The scanning of both Japanese and English characters is fine, and I don’t mind that I have to revise sometimes. It syncs with my Mac and iPhone Contacts quickly, and is easily exported for backup. I love that I can connect to LinkedIn and Facebook, and that the person’s photo can sometimes come up (I can’t figure out, though, how I can determine which photo can be used). Love it! The only feature I would like is if the business card scanned image can be exported along with the other data in the csv file, if that is even remotely possible. I know I can save a picture of the card in my phone, but I prefer not to. Thanks again for creating this!

    Not perfect, every card takes some review and revision, but definitely quicker than putting it in without an app!
  • Decent App for scanning Mar 9, 2020

    By htimsc01
    Has a good set of tools, but not initially easy to get to. Have to go thru screens of this and that to do so. Also, it like a number of apps these days need an annual type of subscription to use all the features. I think this should be clearer as to what it does cost. Perhaps this is an Apple issue not the developer. Finally, the previous Feb reviewer talks about 7/8 people who work live paycheck to paycheck. This is just factually incorrect - all you have to so is review the data on city by city, by job category type (using the workers compensation categories) to see cost of living vs income is not even close to 7/8. Ridiculous unsupported statements that become true because they are repeated over and over. Even above that “paycheck to paycheck” does not account for how the paycheck is spent and so this phrase just becomes a loaded phrase. But back to the review - a useful app! One suggestion would be to somehow connect it to the Apple contacts app, altho that may take away from the data base this app uses. Thanks.

    it does transcribe info well for Western cards but at times struggles with the atypical addresses you see in countries like Indonesia. It would be nice if you could store the card photos on an external memory card rather than needing to keep them on the internal memory. Other than these two items I would rate it as one of the best apps out there for this purpose. After using it for almost 2 years I would not change.

  • In Theory...Amazing. In Practice...Meh. Feb 1, 2020

    By erinvaughn
    I love this tool and I’ve recommended it to many, many people. It has been brought to my attention that the subscription based charging is problematic. If I stop subscribing, where do my cards go? Why can we not purchase it with different rates for number of cards? I’m sure subscription fees are great as a business model for you, recurring revenue and all, but for those that may be on the job search or not using it as often, it’s too expensive a tool. In a day and age when all developers are being taught to look to inclusiveness in their design models, is there not a way to make this more accessible to the hordes of people that need a tool like this but don’t have the budget for recurring charges? Since 7 out of 8 people in our country are living paycheck to paycheck, can you not design a business model that enables people to use such a valuable tool (in job searches especially) while still paying you for your valuable work?

  • Cannot use app Nov 19, 2019

    By Ricky Rocket22
    Requires you to agree to ABBY’s terms regarding agreement to share personal data. If this can be revoked, then why even ask for it at all? Also, allowance of 3rd Party Advertising, which means that there is a sharing of my personal data with other companies. For myself, these terms are unacceptable. While, true, all private data might not be shared, there are no guarantees, that it won’t. As far as, GDPR, I don’t think most people know what that is, (including myself) and ABBY might want to elaborate its meaning to others and, more specifically, how being GDPR compliant provides justification for denying access to this application to the end user. I would very much like to use this application; however, being required to agree to the privacy and advertising terms, again. for myself, is unacceptable.

    Does not sync with Google contacts. One has to manage double contacts. Practically useless due to lack of sync with Google of iPhone contacts.
  • Info on app site Nov 1, 2018

    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 .

    spyware... developers say to turn off their spyware features in the paid pro app after enabling them. they force you to agree to these ToC before the app can now start. after the horse has bolted they close the gate. No thanks.
  1. Do you conduct business abroad? Easily manage your international contacts with a business card scanner that recognizes 25 different languages
  2. Easily share your contacts with others, either by email, text, or Excel spreadsheet
  3. The advanced scanning software alerts you to any possible errors in the scanned copy, so you can make sure it's correct

    I'll give it a 5 star rating, I still would like to see some improvement on the transcoding option. It would be great for the consumer to select what fields we want to import to make the process faster. meaning if I just want names and emails there should be an option for the app to scan for those items. great app overall.👍🏽

  • Not Perfect But Fine Mar 29, 2018

    By pnoble
    I ingested around 200 old business cards in maybe 2-3 hours. The app crashed 5-6 times but to no ill effect. Parsing of card content was sometimes inconsistent for the same card. Character recognition was by no means perfect. Also doesn’t seem to flag duplicates. But all in all it worked like a charm and since my personal use is purely archival and it stores the original image to refer to it is just fine. Better than fine. A few hundred cards to go and then I will never store another and will return from trips and shows card free!! Just two incredibly stupidly designed business cards out of 200 failed to ingest! And one company’s graphics refused to photograph without enormous effort. Importing into iOS address book, into SalesForce, into Excel is huge if you need. Also knowing where and when you ingested the card is terrific. Great app in terms of utility value. Fair subscription cost. Chose on account of an independent comparative review and it’s very high App Store rating.

    This app has been great for my business. I meet 20 to 30 new contacts weekly and I am able to snap a picture of their business card and I can capture all the information at one time. The software is great at picking up the data off the card and in putting it into the app. Extremly easy to use and the web base download is fast and easy also. Great product!

    Love the app. Simple and effective way to store business cards. Good export and printouts to Excel or Contact databases. Have to do a little editing most the time upon export but that is minimal. Also needs a search feature for type of business to find contacts based on keyword. I just use the prefix or postfux in the name optiins and put info like "food vendor" etc. Then will pull up all food vendors when I search for "food" Etc.

    needs improvement but, does what it says it does. I find the navigation clumsy. the infintecimal nature of business card formats make a "perfect" app is both difficult and worth paying for. Let me k ow when you get it dialed in. I'll keep using it and updating.

  • Very creative and very practical/useful tool Oct 16, 2017

    By 岩恩
    Completely worth it! Great concept and fun design especially with nice features such as being able to send an email automatically, with your info in the body and your card picture attached, to those whose business cards you have uploaded. The reason it is not 5 stars is because ok the last few cards I used (which were all the same company but different individuals) it got the spelling and certain info wrong on them so that I had to go in and manually rewrite parts. Not a major issue but something that is there. Also first 15 are free and a fee if you want to add more. Yearly fee is 29+ - not bad.

  • Economical solution for card scanning Aug 8, 2018

    By Darinpf
    I spent $25 for an annual subscription and that seems like a good deal given costs for similar solutions. The plus side- fast scanning, simple intuitive interface, export to excel. The down side- from the first 10 cards I scanned, only 2 picked up the email address and it seemed that several didn’t pick up the name of the organization. And, if you find you want to upload a contact without a business card, you have to go into settings and select the “create your own business card” option and just use that feature to add other contacts without cards. That’s not as intuitive as the rest of the interface. All in all, my hope is I will be collecting hundreds of cards this way and making it easier to upload into Salesforce. I haven’t tried that yet. This is just my day one feedback.

  • Good but not great Dec 13, 2018

    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.

  • Need some improvement Dec 6, 2020

    By Eafb1234
    The app is good, scan and reads the cards quick and is fairly intuitive. But there are some important needs for improvement - Application crashes far too many times. Scanned +300 cards and the app crashed more than 50 times, luckily with no loss of info - App should recognize and learn from prior scanning. If you scan several cards from the same firm, it would be good that once 1 is corrected, then forth coming are scanned correctly - Scan is ok, but could be improved, specially for international business cards. Some scanning errors are not understandable - Should try to follow a format for the phones, particularly when there are international cards so they are all recorded properly - Maybe a good idea would be for the app to lear. If I don’t use nicknames, and rename it as the 2nd last name, well that could be the result next scan. Hope to see further updates to the app that take care of some improvements that could be made.

  • Ok but design flaws Dec 30, 2017

    By Great Service too!!!
    The OCR does a decent job but I hate that the send your card to others feature starts enabled. What if I grab my boss's card or some stranger whose card I just want to have for future reference? Both are true in my case, and I am now wondering if my info has been improperly sent to others. Finally, the categories it uses to keep track of the information should be more carefully thought through. Some feel repetitious while others are lacking. I will not be upgrading and since I only get 10 scans I will need to find another program.

  • Great concept but HORRIBLE UX!! Jun 7, 2019

    By techster_talk
    How can a paid subscription have no option to contact support?!! The export function is broken, there is no info on how to log into the cloud, help links are broken, and even after I managed to dig up what seemed like a ticket system and spent the time providing thorough explanation of the issues, after submitting the screen went completely blank! No confirmation, no emails, nothing! If this is the paid service, I don’t want to know what the free version does. Get it together! You’re a software company!

  • Works but too limited Sep 5, 2018

    By Notformee
    I had no problem with the apps functionality but you can only load 10 cards without a monthly subscription. Anyone who even considers looking up an app to store business cards already has more than ten cards to store or they wouldn’t need it in the first place. $25 a month is outrageous. One time maybe but I think for $300 a year I can come up with a better solution.

  • Works well, but is NOT free Oct 10, 2019

    By jyggt64457gvgg445
    This app works well and does a better job with its recognition software. It does a good job recognizing cards. However, the “free” version is not really free, you are only allowed 10 cards to scan. The price of $60 is ridiculous for this app. Even their method to buy “recognitions” and their sale and promotion prices are ridiculous.
