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.

***** 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.
