Ratings and Reviews
Doesn't sync with contacts
Yes, I can sync with Google contacts if I give it access to all my Google data and rights. But the inability to add to the iPhone contacts is inexcusable.
It's nice as an independent app, if that's what you want. Has good recognition.
Deleted — Again
I had used World Card for several years. It isn't perfect, but it has been a quick way to get business cards into my iPhone contacts, which in turn synchronize with Outlook. I was reasonably pleased with the way it worked. In the latest update, I was asked for permission to sync my Gmail contacts which I did not wish to do. It gave me no choice in the matter. As a result, I deleted the app from my phone because I have no interest in allowing it undefined access to other applications. Because the app gave me no choice, and I had no idea what it would do with data from my Gmail contacts, I considered the security risk unacceptable.
When this was fixed and I noted that it now worked with iOS 11, I decided to give it another try. I just spent 30 min trying to scan 2 cards. The first wouldn’t auto crop. Finally it did. The second I never could get it to recognize, probably because the text is written in the opposite direction as usual.
After being fooled twice, I am going to buy another app.
No outlook sync??
I had a similar thing happened to what the other reviewer said. I thought that world card once I paid for the professional version would sync to my Outlook. I haven’t used it in a while I’ve recently spent literally an hour trying to add a couple business cards and see if they’re synchronizing to Outlook. This is crap. I’d like my money back but I’m sure that’s not gonna happen and it’s going to take way too long to try to even deal with it. I have tried multiple settings and cannot get it to sync it does show up on my iPhone in the contacts but I need it to go to my laptop. I don’t even see where it came in the Gmail.
