With Business Card Reader iPhone 3GS captures business cards – Macitynet.it
With Business Card Reader we take a picture of the business cards and the program creates contacts for us in the Address Book. This App takes advantage of the iPhone 3GS advanced camera and also integrates ABBYY software for OCR character recognition functions. According to the developers, the solution allows you to relegate pen and paper to the past, avoiding the user to manually transcribe all the business card data, a perfect solution for work, fairs, sales staff and so on.
With the new version 1.1 the program improves the automatic completion of the data in the fields of the iPhone Address Book, in particular by inserting name and surname in the two appropriate fields. Recall that the developer only indicates iPhone 3GS as a supported smartphone: for previous generations of iPhones it may be necessary to use an optional accessory to improve the magnification of the captured image. Other interesting features include the ability to view the LinkedIn profile directly from the contact just scanned thanks to an integrated browser, the ability to create a virtual business card holder, and finally a captivating special effect. When the software scans the screen, a bright blue bar appears simulating the scanner effect.
Business Card Reader available on the App Store at the discounted price for the launch of 4.99 euros.
