You know when someone gives you their phone number, email address or website on a piece of paper? That painful moment when you have to copy it down, word for word onto your phone. You never have to do that again...

Capture and see the action! You'll be on your way before you can even say "blinko".
1 - Take a picture
2 - Instantly text, call, email or navigate to a social media page!

blinko is free to download and use and was created by a 14 year-old app developer named Jai Bhavnani.

Written by a 14 year old?!

This would be an impressive app even if it was written by a 40 year old. I'll be using this every time I go to a meeting!

Didn't Work For Me

I tried using this on both handwritten and typed contact info and the app was unable to use the info.

Good idea, but does not always work

If the numbers are occluded, the app appears to have trouble parsing them.
