While power users would probably be better off using a service that provides hand checking for business cards, the casual business card grabber would do just fine using ABBYY.
What's Newâ˘ Easy contact search: sorting business cards by âFirst nameâ or âLast nameâ makes data in the Contact name field change accordingly.
â˘ Better Wi-Fi sharing of cards with partners and colleagues thanks to updated Alljoyn technology.
â˘ New intuitive design for business cards synchronization scenario.

***** by Neozenith
Clearly a lot of work has gone into making this app simple and easy to use. The OCR works well. 80-90% of what was scanned came through without a problem. So that is 80-90% of a business card I don't have to enter for myself but they go to the effort of highlighting parts in red that the OCR was unsure of. Smart. I can see why these guys are industry leaders in OCR technology.
The app is compatible with all iPhones starting from iPhone 4.
iOS 7.0 or higher is required.
â˘Forget having to manually enter contact details into your iPhone. Unsurpassed data recognition and speed, eliminate having to correct or re-key data, making creating new contacts easy and automatic.
