HOW TO GET GOOD RECOGNITION RESULTS
1. Place the business card on a flat surface.
2. Good lighting is key: bright desk lamp or direct sunlight are necessary.
3. With the iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S, make sure the camera is focused on the business card. Older models of iPhone require additional third-party macro lenses.
4. Hold the iPhone right above the card. Keep the card aligned with the viewfinder edges and adjust iPhone positioning so that the card fits the screen size.
5. Tap the screen to take the picture.
6. After the recognition is done, you can check the results.
7. Tap Save to add the contact into your iPhone address book.
