Readdle releases Card Scanner Pro to recognize business cards on iPhone

Aug 12, 2011

Readdle, the leading publisher of business and productivity applications, today is pleased to announce the availability of their new iPhone application - Card Scanner Pro. The application scans business cards with the iPhone camera, recognizes the information on it and saves those details directly to the Address Book.

Card Scanner Pro accurately pulls all the contact information from a paper business card into iPhone's Address Book. The whole process takes 3 simple steps. The application scans the card with the iPhone camera, recognizes all fields on the card including the person's name, email address, postal address and saves these details to the iPhone's Contacts.

"Among dozens of business cards there is always a few that can be like a gold dust for you", says Alex Tyagulsky, Readdle co-founder. "Card Scanner Pro saves the information from a paper business card to your iPhone, excluding the possibility of losing important contacts."

Card Scanner Pro relies on best in class OCR technology by ABBYY, which leads to a perfect recognition accuracy and contact details being assigned to proper fields. At the same time, before the data is saved to the address book, users can easily preview and make any changes. While editing any specific field, the application displays the corresponding part of the source image to allow easy verification.

Pricing and Availability:
Card Scanner Pro 1.0 is available on the Apple App Store at $6.99 (USD) in the Business category. The application is compatible with iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4 and requires iOS 4.0 or later.
