Pretty good app It does a decent job but the OCR is stellar one time and lousy the next. They solved this by allowing you to move incorrectly identified items to the proper field.

Josh Strout

Horrible Thought it was going to be good but turned out horrible. It read one single word on the whole card and didn't even get the phone number correct.

ramesh nt

Nice tool Excellent one to keep all our cards in one place. Best thing in this is it reads and put the values to the name and phone No's.

david read

Works as advertised Does what is says it will do. I have been disappointed that I have not needed to use it more often. Time to go doctor shopping.

Michael Anderson

Works well It does a pretty good job recognizing text and what little it doesn't get it makes it easy to correct. I like it.

Kim Garback

Does the job, but could do better... I love the fact that this reader automatically scans the image of the card and tries to plug the information into the separate fields where it belongs. The automated process is convenient. However, the app makes consistent mistakes that makes for a very frustrating experience. For example, whenever there is a letter O the app always replaces it with the number zero for some reason. I think that with a little bit more attentive maintenance, this could be a great app.

Mark Desmet

Helps reduce clutter! Works best with clear vs arty cards. Editing OCR errors is easy.

Chris Buchanan

Impressed Great app simple to use. One of the few I can rate 5 stars

Joseph Bunga

Excellent - Must Have When you are always meeting people this saves so much time in capturing all the details - you must however check the captured info as with anything

Mohd Azrin Abdul Wahab

Very gud enough. Comparing to othet product so far yhis is the best app for it purpose with minir adjustment to be made everytime u snap a name card

thomas card

This does help but like all others its got some bugs to be fixed I downloaded this business card reader about a month ago & i dont get that many cards over a years time even so the small bugs that it does have dont tend to bother me as much as they would if i was recieving cards on a constant basis because if you get more than about 10 to 15 in a month then this app doesnt save all that much time because you end up having to edit just about every field after it scans the cards especially if you get so many different styles.

Lukman Iqbal

Works For me works better when i snap a pic using standard camera app then import / scan the picture using card reader

Raymond Leyfert

Great app, not only keeps your cards in order, but also sends card info to your contact list.

Carl Joshua Ncube

Makes business easy Saves time after networking events when you have tonnes of cards and want to be in touch

Blanca Arias

Cool Ap Been waiting for this App. Started taking photos of business tired of losing them, but this is better. Saves in alphabetical prefer and up loads to contacts.

Gloria Boules

Simple & Great Product! On my Samsung Galaxy2 this app great. Simple & effective. Straight to the point,Thanks !

Jim Hull

Saves time! Still amazed at this technology. It integrates all info into my contact list. I recommend.

Daniel Janos

Dan Junk! Don't waste your time. Tried 20 different cards not 1 was even close. Easier to just enter contacts by hand. Everything comes out like gibberish.

Nieesha Williams

Pretty Good app. Make sure you double check the spelling because the business cards don't always transpose properly but, the integration with evernote is great!

Michael Salazar

Very useful Only problem is it mixes up the information and puts it into the wrong fields but not a big deal. Still an awesome app

Katie Hughes

Convenient Even if it messes up the text recognition some times on difficult card fonts, I'm still pleased with the time savings and syncing to gmail

Luis Fernando Barrera

Great App Just allow to select a group for the contact and do not save the contact into the phone sim

Saurabh Banerjee

Error writing to phone contact For some contacts after I scan and save a card I am getting an error writing to phone contacts.

Kentthegreet G

It can recognize text but... It doesn't know what name fields the texts belong. You have to manually put the text to name, address, telephone and company name fields. CamCard is way way better.

George Vrontas

Works extremely well Simply stated... It does exactly what they said it would do.

Anais Ho

Ocr not fully correct. Still a great app to quickly manage your cards. Can auto store onto gmail phone contact my handphone contact samsung phone list and other choices. I wish for the note tab the developer can add in draw function as I prefer to scribble my notes. Good ocr. Great app

Debora Sanford

Card Scanner I like that it picks up the majority of the text and what it does not recognize is ready to edit and I like the easy option to pick what field it should be placed in if in the wrong location.

Simone Riccardi

Thanks for the labeling / tagging system! This app is pure awesomeness.

Amy Figot

Needs fixing Loved the idea. However, I spent more time correcting or retyping the scanned words. It would be faster for me just to type a contact card without this app.

Gary Rocklitz

Works well Does a very good job on ocr... not perfect, but good given the diversity of fonts, colors etc on calling cards. I like the fact that you can choose and change categories for text, and that cards go into phone contacts.

Antoine Harrison

Good product but OCR needs work I like this app because it doesn't force the cards to be integrated with your personal contacts. I don't call my business contacts everyday so I do not choose to sort through them to get to my personal contacts. The app allows you to keep notes on each card so you can save identifying information regarding where we met, product I was interested in, etc. The downfall is that the OCR is about 75% accurate but at least you do not have to type everything from scratch.

Max Mokeyev

Great app! Recognition isn't perfect, but it's probably the best out there for an Android device.

Shadab Sanam

Good Its very use full for purchase officers like me.

Chakprin C.

Overall good But can't change the image that was saved. If have new one update, may be delete old and add new one.

Priadi Sadikin

Great app Saves you from.the hassle of managing physical business cards

Milan Janca

Great Keeps extra copy of card in case you forgot where you last had it.

Charles G Nathan

Had some issues with SE SP, works wonderfully well with my Xperia Z3

Mike Aldrich

Potential, Error writing to device! I loved the app for storing all my business cards, but only some of the contacts saved to my google account. Now continually getting "Error writing to device contacts" message. Has me looking for other options.

Missy Burk

Lose the ads Works ok but has some trouble recognizing information. Seems this happens with most scanner apps. I like that I can save the contact to one of my e-mail accounts. The adds are horrible. They get in the way and I have to close an ad every time I scan a card. I would rate it higher if the ads were gone.

Artem Sokolov

Very expensive

Larry M

It's free Decent app, most of the time it's able to scan all information, the rest of the time it gets the first few lines and the rest of the information is all strange characters.

Mason Rose

Fantastic This makes it so much easier to save a contacts information. I use for stores, vendors, customers, and I feel confident knowing that the data is saved to Google account. Thanks! Keep up the good work.

Mike Beunder

Good app. OCR could improve some but apart from that easy to use, good qual

Gail Thibault

Handy for decluttering Stores a picture of both sides of the card. Doesn't alway pull text in accuratly, but is easy to fix and just delete what you don't need. Can pull adjusted info into contacts. I have found this app helpful in keeping my purse and car clean.


The best of the lot ! Does 90℅ of the job. Works best with the flash on. Very easy to make corrections and move the text to their correct positions. Tried at least 4 other popular readers before settling on this one.

William Sterrett

Doesn't work with cards that have art Took an extremely clear picture and the app punched in random garbage for the all categories. Only thing it got correct was the city and state.

Jim Sleutel

Good n Simple Great card photos so I have all notes. The light turned on is a little green on the photo. OCR needs help, to often doesn't get the lettering correct. But easy to type in the defined name address etc.

Ike Dimitriadis

It can't read OCR is wrong most of the time. It's a shame. Everything else seems to work seemlessly. If they fix this, it'll be a great app.

Kenneth Healey

Good at what it does! Nice No more cards in wallet. Image scan not perfect. Ez to just enter data by hand when scan missed data. The cards photo's are saved so nothings lost refer to the card then. I like it. The apps not going to get all the information off the scan of every card but its still better then carrying 100s of cards on your person.

Fares Adam

Card Reader Good application. Handy for your daily records of business cards to your Telephone Directory

Dollar Chande

Decent App, does the requisite Could have been better, but being free does the job. However struggles with small letters/fonts.

ivonne gallegos-ortegon

This app works Unlike all the other similar apps, this one actually works. Great layout too.

Juda A

Carry every where I go... Easily keep cards and contact of new peoples whereever I go.

Paul Gonzales

Pretty good, but... I wanted something that i could put some bios for some clients. But now that i want to go back and change the pic or image, it won't let me. I have to delete the whole bio and start again. Am i missing something? Also, would be great to have pc version so u can transfer and sync info easier

Brand Man

Doesn't transfer to phone contact list This used to be a great app which I used almost everyday. Now the app creates a contact list of its own and does not transfer the scanned info to the phone's contact list! This defeats the entire purpose of using this app... if not fixed immediately, will surely uninstall.

Steven Solomon

Not That Great The OCR is not working well at all. Every line needs to be corrected and some the letters it enters I have no idea where it gets it from This is not useful to me at all. Don't think the issue is with my camera phone as other apps have not problem.

Doug Stetson

Won't write to Google Contacts. Does a decent job of OCR capture, but after making whatever corrections are needed, the app will not save to my gmail account. "Error writing to device contacts." This error continues. Tried Card Scanner. Works with Google Contacts. Deleting this app.

Rob Adams

Does not work Worked great for the first 10 cards. After that it gives me an error when trying to move the contact to my phone contacts. Sent email for help a week ago. No response.

Chris Rush

Text recognition is not great Does poorly with phone numbers and emails, eg confuses 0 for o often

Sharon Rowan

Card to Contact Big improvement on manually entering info into Contacts. However sometimes must correct info garbled in scanning.

Usama Alamoudi

Really like this app. I like the app and it's functions but recently cannot save to Contacts.

Geoff Peters

Works well and it's free! Enjoy this app, helps me stay organized and reduce clutter of too many cards lying around. Thanks!!

Les Chelsey

Galaxy S5 Active Crashed Constant crash after capturing image.

Utomo .prawiro

Need improvement 1 auto card recognition. 2. Spellchecker need to be improved for non english. Need to recognize many Street name and common word such as phone, fax, address and others in other language. And better if 2 language also ok

Jaffer Akbar

Bayu Amus

Keeps telling it can't save the new contact into my phone's phone book; otherwise is quite an accurate card reader.
