Bestselling business card app Business Card Reader has released a new update set to significantly improve everything possible about it.
For the uninitiated, Business Card Reader sets to save you plenty of time by importing contact information from a business card straight into your iPhone's address book. We've all been there, you've been off networking and collecting up many business cards from various potentially useful contacts. Now you're stuck having to add all that information manually. Scan it in with Business Card Reader and your time is instantly saved. It even works with business cards in other languages or with unusual characters. Jason reviewed it last year and gave it a sterling review with 4.5 stars out of 5.
This latest update hopes to make everything more efficient. There's improved contact editing courtesy of the new contact editor and there's a great scanned card preview to check out as you go along. Plus the app is all too happy to highlight symbols that it's not certain about.
Business Card Reader was already an essential app for the networker, especially for iPhone 4 owners who seemed to have the best results with the scanning engine, but this update sets to make it that bit more useful.
The update is free for owners of the last version. Those who are interested in taking the plunge with the app can purchase it for $5.99.
