  • Very time consuming, not user friendly

    By Franko97
    I’ve had to edit every card , won’t recognize BC as a province, have to type British Columbia. Then says I’m creating a duplicate, when I try to export to Salesforce, but the original is not displayed.

    Accurate and easy!!!
  • Premium exports don’t work

    By sueyness
    Bug report : I paid for Premium only to find the export function doesn’t work in either Google Contacts or CSV. I can’t send my scanned contacts anywhere. Will change to 5 stars when this is fixed.
  • No good!

    By worldch1001
    Makes lots of mistakes reading cards. It only lets you store 10 cards as a teaser trial.
  • CSV export has jumbled content

    By Mikesh1987
    Everything was working fine with the app but when exporting the contacts to CSV, it jumbled most of the data in one cell. That defeats the purposes. I need a designated First name column, Last name column, Phone number, etc. Are there any plans to correct this?
  • Time saver

    By tloomis61
    I have been using this app for about 8 months now and have no problems.
  • What a joke

    By BloodedBatosai
    Such a simple app for keeping business cards in order and you want to charge monthly fees? Talk about wack. Monthly fees to essentially keep pictures and info of a business on an app....yeaaaa fail

    This business card reader by far is the best app I’ve purchased. Works flawlessly from my iPhone XR. Offers many bells and whistles the competition doesn’t. App developer did a great job putting this app together. Everyone should have this app.
  • Why a subscription??

    By JL64
    I downloaded this and scanned a few cards. For the most part it works pretty good, it didn’t get one of the addresses right but I was able it easily edit that. My only issue is with all these great apps that want to get in on the subscription kick. Why?? I don’t want to pay monthly or annually...if you make this a small one time fee this would be an awesome app, but $7.99 per month is insane. Without subscribing you can only store up to 10 cards. If I only had 10 cards to store I wouldn’t need this app. Reconsider your subscription fee!!
  • App won’t let me correct the email address saved

    By Honeysuckle10
    The app has saved an incorrect email address for me and it offers no way to update it in my account settings. Now I’m been unable to export the business cards to Excel, which was the reason I purchased this app.
