    "If you, like me, work in an industry where business cards are routinely given to you, this app is a real time-saver. While there are lots of OCR (optical character recognition) apps out there, this one is specific to business cards. What that means to us is, it doesn't just transcribe text, it puts the results to use - adding a contact just off a business card is really easy, in most cases it's a matter of seconds. Then the contact is saved to your phone and synced just like any other!"

DID YOU KNOW?

Did you know that Chinese people are so particular with the way you exchange business cards? It is no surprise that they attach a value to such cards because it originated in China back in the 15th century. The primary purpose of these cards is to inform someone about a meeting. So much effort was put into making these because they were usually decorated with calligraphy with the sender’s name and title. Interestingly, Chinese people, especially businessmen, always take into consideration your effort to print a dual-sided Chinese business card with simplified Chinese on one side and an English version on the other because for them it is a great manifestation of respect towards their culture. 

Although nodding or bowing is the traditional way of greeting in China, shake hands has become more popular among them. However, the Chinese are not so much into touching strangers so be cautious not to touch, hug, or make anybody contacts as this may result in an unclosed business transaction. Usually, exchanging of business cards are done upon the initial meet up—this is the moment the way of exchanging becomes essential. You should hold the card with both hands and make sure that the card is neat, no dog-ears corners and ensure that you are holding it Chinese side-up, facing your contact so he can read it.

    "Business cards weren't a big deal for me for a long time, but after getting new job in a different field, they became vital. I had a desk drawer filling up with them and came back from conferences with more every 2-3 weeks. This app helped me immensely in getting a handle on all of the value in those cards, keeping the information organized and integrating it with other functions -- no more digging up the right card to find an address, then putting that into Maps. I'd go so far as to say this helped me get a raise at my last review!"

    "Acquainted is a business card app that doesn't focus primarily on scanning business cards. These guys took a novel approach and focused on creating directly digital cards that can be seamlessly shared cross-platform and with people that do not have the app or an account. It's quite smart, I recommend you check it out."

    "This doesn't do anything a traditional desktop card scanner won't do. The advantage is that you only need your phone, and somewhere to put the card down so you can scan it squared up and flat for a good photo. That can be tricky sometimes though; the app seems seriously picky about what constitutes a good photo it can scan and interpret for entry into the linked database. And that database won't export except in their custom format, so I can't plug it into my existing software, or even into something like Excel or Access so I can use the information in other ways. Basically, this is a nice idea ruined by a cash grab greedy company. Hate it."

I told my friend about the app and he was puzzled by the fact that he could not have it on his Android phone. Meanwhile, Evernote is now in my top five apps that I use for my business."
