What's New

Have you ever found yourself out of business cards on an important meeting? The new version of ABBYY Business Card Reader can spare you plenty of awkwardness by enabling you to send a digital copy of your business card to the e-mail address on the card of a new acquaintance. This only takes a few taps: open Business Card Reader, take a picture of the business card, scroll down to the bottom of the screen with data from the card and tap the big Send your business card button. Just make sure you have a card to send by adding your own cards in all of the languages you may need to the My Cards list beforehand.

This feature lets you save paper, avoid cluttering up the pockets and desks of potential partners and provides a viable backup option in case you forget to bring your cards to a conference or expo. If you think it’s great, feel free to drop us a few words on BCR’s page, positive feedback makes for great morning reading.
