"Is your wallet overloaded of business card? Let's solve that"

CamCard Lite - Business Card R is a business card scanner

CamCard captures business card images by using your phone back camera as a scanner. It catches first names, last name, phone, e-mail, address and other extra info and put it into form labels. By this way you will be able to turn a physical business card into a vcard. Once you've caught all the data, confirm that everything is in its label and save it You will be able then to save the contact to your phonebook or to the app database, save it to your Gmail account or share it by SMS or other means. It also scans the image of the business card if it has one.

It has to be said that the scanning is quite accurate and it did it well with all the card we've tried. One of the features we really liked is the QR code generation/recognition for contact's content. And also that it has support business card recognition for several languages. CamCard has been integrated with LinkedIn and you can search/invite the card holder directly from the app.

CamCard has been developed by IntSig Information Co., Ltd, an app developer who has just launched this app (and its different versions) to the market with remarkably success.

This app is especially useful for those who constantly get business card from contacts and want to put in order them safely in his/her device. If that's your case, give it a try. But take in account that the Lite version let you scan maximum 10 business cards per week. If you need more, you'll have to upgrade to the unlimited version.

    Unacceptable inconsistencies. Keeps crashing. For a paid app, this is unacceptable. It's tedious enough to peck my way through all the corrections that the OCR should have caught... Then it freezes when trying to save? C'mon. For a paid app? Get yourselve

    OK honeymoon phase is over... downgrading rating to two stars due to the following ... Firs, the app will not scan a card correctly if there is a design element on the card. A photo.. a frame... a logo.. a background... any of these seem to cause the car

    Great text recognition and good usability. Still lacks the option to sort by last name, thus 4 out of 5 stars.
