Good and easy to use
I’ve tried other CC apps, this is by far the best!
Just downloaded and scanned business cards. This app can't handle simple things like professional designations at the end of names. All the cards I scanned ended up with RN or other last names. The real last name ended up as the middle name. If you have a lot of cards with professional designations after the name, do not buy this app. Image quality is awful too. What a disappointment.
Only need the quick function to scan and save. That shouldn’t cost $8 a month
I briefly tried ABBYY and CamCard and decided to go with ABBYY because of the customer service and backup support. It’s working pretty well so far. I think they can improve some things. The image and field recognition seems similar to camcard. They each recognized or failed to recognize different information, but one did not out perform the other (my test was only 5 cards). I liked some of the user interface with camcard better, but think I’ll get used to ABBYY just fine. It’s syncing with my google contacts well and seems to link up to websites well. Here are some things I wish were better or added: 1. I wish the edge recognition and text field recognition were better. 2. I wish photo quality were better. 3. The search function isn’t recognizing text in the notes section very well. Example: I made a note about when/where I met several people and then tried to search by a key term I used like “networking “ and it didn’t pull anyone up. 4. It often doesn’t put the business name in caps and has failed to add a space between words in business names several times. 5. It sends i messages instead of sms even when the phone isn’t marked as an iPhone. 6. I wish I could reassign information to other fields easily. For example: the app would recognize text and assign it to something like ‘job title ‘, but that wasn’t accurate. I would like that same information in the notes section instead. There was no easy way to do that. I had to delete the information and re enter it all by hand. 7. That issue is related to this suggestion. In CamCard the app showed me the text that was recognized. I’d love it if this app did the same thing, but also went a step further. It’d be incredibly helpful if it would then allow me to click on the text and assign it to a field. 8. I wish the app allowed me to assign multiple categories to a contact and that those categories were searchable. I like the group feature, but can only assign one group per business card. 9. I’d love to be able to automatically schedule an action for the cards I’m entering. I need to follow up with people, but am going to forget if I don’t keep the card or have a reminder. I’m often entering multiple cards at a time and have notes on them about what I need to do next. I’d love to schedule a reminder or add to calendar function. That way I can truly come home without this pile of paper to deal with. 10. I’d love it if the app auto recognized photos of people and offered to add those to the person so I don’t have to go in separately to crop the business card down to that photo. I think that’s it for now. I’ll be over the moon for this app if these ideas become upgrades. Signed: A New User
Thinking this is the best app out there right now for this.
I like the program, but although I have a great camera on my phone the data is almost never correct leaving me to manually type it in.
The app does an excellent job recognizing text with only a few problems mostly caused by lighting(reflection) on the card. The address editor is missing the carriage return making it difficult to format addresses. The 10 card limit makes it difficult to properly evaluate, particularly in light of the $29.99 annual subscription price.
Rarely does this scan a business card without errors
