Poor App In spite of the hi res camera on my phone, this app consistently was unable to accurately read the text on a variety of business cards. Manually entering info into a note keeping app is faster. Absolutely worthless.

Not great I wonder how app size is calculated. I installed this, added ONE card, and the app took up 50-something MB (as opposed to the 18+ listed). It took up too much space for its function. The drag and drop is touchy and rather ponderous: a lot of work to add one card. It didn't automatically add the info to my contacts list. I didn't keep the app long enough to figure out how to transfer the data....

Good app but sometimes it just doesn't seem to be able to differentiate between the name and the company name. Apart from that, very useful
