1. BizSnap

If you want to snap quick photos of business cards, BizSnap is a great app for you. You can position it on your iPhone screen for the quickest utilization. It has a custom Take photo button that is colored code for ease of use. When you have your camera in focus the color turns from red to green. Depending on how well your software can recognize the business card text, determines the quality of photos that you will achieve.

When you get your scanned text back, BizSnap will score the quality for you as well. Like many of the popular apps that are available today, BizSnap doesn’t just need to recognize the text, it also has to recognize where each word goes and into what field it belongs. If BizSnap happens to recognize the wrong words or information, the process of correcting the mistakes are always straightforward with this handy app.

It is a simple process of copying and pasting the text into their proper fields, and once you are satisfied with the info, you can easily create a contact account on your iPhone with a single tap of a button. There is also a concept called “snap tokens” with this app. Although the application is free, you are required to purchase tokens if you want your photos processed. It only costs six dollars for unlimited photo processing. One unique feature of BizSnap is something called receipt scanning. This is something not always found in other applications of this kind.

  • How did you not include ScanBizCards :-)? It’s the business card reader with (by far) the longest list of features + the only one which backups and lets you manage your cards on the web + the only one to also offer a manual option – and with 23 recongnition languages. Oh and it’s the most accurate too. Hope I am not leaving anything out 🙂

    • ScanBizCards has been added 🙂

    • Boy that was fast … just for this we lowered the price right now from $6.99 to $2.99 for 24h – enjoy!

  • Hi Lalit and Veer,

    I don’t own a business card, however, I really like iOS since it has many many apps, starting from a simple one, games, business, blogs and many others.

    I never use an android, so I have no idea how it is, perhaps I will try a droid device next.. I am very curious LOL


    • Hi Kimi,
      I’m using Android and you have such apps for Android too but I still think iOS would be a better choice.

    Thanks for your post. But I use Android phone to collect more thousands of business
    cards now. So easy and simple. You can access the contacts everywhere without Internet
    connection by using CardFila for Mobile (iPhone or Android phones)
