Please leave a review if you like Business Card Reader. Thank you!
In this release, we made some stability updates and bug fixing.
The most important in previous versions:
+ You do not need a subscription to export to Salesforce CRM anymore. If you have an active Salesforce subscription, disable it in Apple ID settings and use this feature free of charge.
+ Now BCR can open business cards if you ask Siri. All you need to do is set up the ‘Open card’ command in the ‘Siri Shortcuts’ app, and presto! You can now open any card from BCR by simply saying the contact's name.
If you enjoy BCR, please feel free to leave your review on the App Store.
Ratings and Reviews
I Can Recommend This App
I work in a professional setting and I meet with new people once a month within my work life and this application makes it easy to organize and keep everyone’s contacts.
I got a new phone and made quick backup within the app on my old phone. When I installed this application to my new phone, I just restored from the backup (needs internet connection) and I had all my contacts onto my new phone (and on the app). It was easy to do.
One problem is the character recognition sometimes incorrectly get a character and I have to manually fix it.

Could be better
This app has great features that other apps do not offer. I like being able to search them on LinkedIn, save their photo, and export my contacts into an excel file. However, this app can do better with the address function. If the address isn’t correct, I have to make a new address and delete the original because it will not save my edit, or it will mix the state into the street address. Additionally, once I do get the right address and export to an excel file, the state, street, and zip columns are never accurate in the file. It’s very frustrating. Have you thought about making specific fields when inputting the address on the app instead of one long line? One card will work, while the other card from the same company won’t. I just don’t get it. Also, I can’t download the app on my desktop because it’s a windows, and my phone is an apple product and it shows there’s no device found. In order to get the app on my desktop, I’ll have to pay for the app again..? No. Again, this app has better features than other apps, but I don’t know if it’s worth $35.

Thank you for your feedback! The desktop application is out of sale. We will forward your wish to improve the address line to the developers. Have a nice day,
Fantastic App 268 contacts!!!!!
I volunteer with many groups. I also have a business and friends from different groups. This app is the only way I can keep all my contacts in one place but divided among the various groups where I know them! Of all the apps I've ever owned, this has to be my all time favorite! I love the fact that every few months I can go in and back everything up. This also makes life so easy when I upgrade my cell phone and need to move my contacts over!
