Capture and see the action! You'll be on your way before you can even say "blinko".

Doesn't work at all

This app sounds great, and what it does should be remarkably simple. But in practice? It doesn't work at all. Tried multiple business cards, wrote some info down, made sure that I had a clear photo each time and nothing. All it could pick up on was a series of random characters. Not to mention the fact that the loading time feels like it takes forever.

What good is an app for digitising contatc info if it takes longer than typing it up and then doesn't even pick up the relevant info?
