AppDictions App Review
Traditional business cards become cumbersome to carry around and wear out overtime. The WorldCard Mobile Business Card Reader & Scanner app allows you to keep your business card collection right in your iPhone. Scan a business card and add the data into your contact list and never have to carry around another traditional business card again. WorldCard Mobile Business Card Reader & Scanner brings superior recognition quality, high-speed scanning and updates, automatic sorting of contact data, merging of data into existing contacts, auto-image rotation when scanned sideways, manual cropping, and much more.
If you’re looking for a quality Business Card Reader & Scanner, WorldCard Mobile is the app for. We highly recommend this app.
