    Nice tool
  • Fairly good app

    By DaddyDoubleA
    It’s functional but extremely basic. The exact same as the first one I downloaded 13-14 years ago. I don’t like that as soon as you get to used to it and have a couple of important cards saved, then you stop being able to add more without paying. Either charge me or don’t. It seems like there’s other features that they could charge for instead of the basic feature of the app.
  • Awesome App

    Love this for keeping business cards organized.

  • Perfect for what I need! (Japanese/English)

    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!

  • It’s awesome

  • It’s Okay

    By Abril en la Iglesias
    This app does not read and scan credit cards very well. They also charged me my regular subscription plus the full subscription price again when I upgraded within 10 minutes.
  • Ok

  • Thank

    By xjjxjxnxjz
    Good job
  • A good app but needs improvement for addresses

    By jcm200
    It has some great features but address recognition has much to be desired. It is incapable to recognizing any street address that has a “state” as its name. But it’s better than some of the other apps I tried.
  • Love the app, but...

    I purchased all the apps in a bundle a while back and for some reason I cannot restore my purchases of all apps. I should be considered premium subscriber, however it’s not recognizing my account as premium and am continuously being asked to pay again. Also having a difficult time reaching customer service. App seems to be intact, however customer service has a lot to be desired.
  • 10 card limit

    By J2 Group
    There is a limit to 10 cards unless you subscribe.
  • Not that easy to use

    By Fitness Z
    I’ve entered over 70 cards. The app misreads many names and addresses. It also adds information that isn’t on the card. One business in Los Alamitos added Los Alamitos Race Track and I don’t have any cards with that. It can’t focus on picture business cards but it reads some ok.

  • App works great

    After I tried this app I was impressed with it. I upgraded. I would recommend this to any one that has pile of business card with a rubber band filing system. Kenny96
  • Requires Paid Subscription

    By RCT0626
    I used it to import a couple of cards. It worked perfectly on the first one, better than I expected. It did not work at all on the second one. Admittedly, the second one used a script font, and I really didn’t expect it to be scanned correctly. From those two cards, I’d say that generally this app does what it says it will do. For that, I’d give it 4 stars. However, I am giving it 2 stars in the official review because I give that to every app developer that pulls the bait-and-switch of appearing to offer the app for free, then hitting you up for a paid subscription as soon as you open it. In this case, $29.99/ year, which it says is a 65% discount. There are very few apps that provide enough in the way of continuing services to justify a recurring subscription. This is simply a way to keep charging people over and over for a product they should only have to purchase once. Be honestv- charge for your app once, and make the price available in the App Store description so that it is viewable before download.

    By tloomis61
    I have been using this app for about 8 months now and the only issue I have had is it doesn’t always read the cards completely. I then have to manually fix the issues.
  • Great app. Too expensive for me.

    By FishTankLover:
    As I sit here trying to figure out how to scan my business cards , I find how VERY EASY it is to get frustrated. Fish I could find the App I used years ago. Should be a three but I haven’t yet figured out why I can’t get it, yet I get every other App I use..,
