Readdle released Card Scanner Pro to recognize business cards on the iPhone

10 Aug


Readdle, the leading publisher of business and productivity applications, today
announced 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 the fields of a card which includes name, email address, postal address and saves them to the iPhone’s Contacts.


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

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

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