Great app

Update: With the most recent update, every time I open a saved card image and close it, I'm told the image has been modified and am asked if I want to save or discard the changes. Even if I click save, the app will ask me the same next time and it's getting really annoying. Please fix this bug.

Highly recommend to anyone who does business in China / HK / Taiwan etc. A few reasons why:

- Automatic cropping
- Very accurate character recognition
- Seamless iCloud integration
- Allows both sides of the card to be captured under the same entry
- Has the option of not to save into iPhone contact list by default. This is important because I don't want to have EVERYONE I meet in the business context to cluster my phone book

I'm still exploring but really impressed so far.

Update: I'd like to make an important suggestion. Currently I have my cards ordered by Chinese Pinyin. As a result, all the companies with English names are lumped into the "#" category, which is very inconvenient. Can the developers PLEASE change it such that the English names will get slotted into the Chinese names according to their first letter? Should be a very easy fix but will be a huge improvement.

Great app, new version has a problem

Been using this for over a year now --- great app! But in a recent update, lost the ability to use the scanned photo to put into the contact photo area. When adding a photo to the contact info, there used to be 3 choices -- existing photo (like from photo roll), take a new photo, or use the photo you just took and scanned. Now the last option is missing, so you have to take a new photo. It worked great before, why strip this function out? If you don't have the original card anymore, there is no way to extract the scanned photo.

Really Works

I found this works great for both English and Chinese business cards. It is convenient and gets it right most of the time just make sure you are taking a photo in a well lit room. Would be nice if it could file contacts in a specific group in the Address book so that I can take action on them later.
