***** 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.

* 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.
* Quickly find the contact you need. So CardHolder, the app's archive, provides convenient business card search, sorting and grouping functionality. So you can quickly and easily find the information you need.
