The biggest hassle with business cards is getting the contact information into your address book as fast as possible â€” thatâ€™s where Business Card Reader for the iPhone comes in, reports TechCrunch.
Business Card Reader scans and â€œreadsâ€ the picture using ABBYYâ€™s text recognition technology and enters the data into the iPhone or iPod touch address book.
Basically, you open the application, and choose either to take a new picture of a business card, or if youâ€™ve already taken a picture, you can upload that as well.
After you take a picture, or upload a picture, the application scans the business card, and after about 15 seconds, you get the address book field to edit the scanned information if there are errors.
Once thatâ€™s all done, it adds the new contact into your address book. Itâ€™s really that easy.
