    After reading fairly good reviews, I downloaded app and have been using often. It is VERY hit and miss. I often (1 out of every 3) get gibberish in all or most fields - and more often, I’m manually correcting at least one field. I can’t figure out why… Sometimes it’s over cellular, sometimes it’s when connected to Wi-Fi. And doesn’t seem tied To whether bus. card are white paperstock, traditional formats or more creative in layout. Other times it works like a charm. But if you’re looking to frequently and put cards as I am, having to manually enter 1 of every 3 is neither impressive nor useful.
  • Work seamlessly

    I have it for over 2 yrs . I love it not only capture the info of the card and also show to me and allow me to make changes in case the scanning info is incorrect which is inevitable as scanning technology is not perfect yet Plus also saved the copy of the card in its app Great idea !

    This App does not do a good job of capturing correct information. 99% of the time I still need to go to my contact app and correct information it captured incorrectly or missed all together. Don’t waste your money.
  • Latest update has bugs.

    I’ve always love this app. It was accurate and quick. That is up until the last update. Now it’s started with multiple pictures. Crazy symbols inserted. I find myself have to correct and manually insert information. I just don’t understand why these updates go backwards. It was great. Leave it alone.
  • Doesn’t work anymore in iPhone 6s

  • They Broke A Great App

    I have used this program for a few years now and have been happy until recently. The app not longer works, after the unread release. You can not save the record. It also does not up load to the cloud either. Have contacted support and had very slow and poor response. Do not buy this until they fix it.

    My favorite business card reader. The cloud service and Salesforce integration are particularly useful! Well done.
  • Poor performance

    I’ve been using BCR pro for 5+ years and it has become very slow and unresponsive. Try a different app. Current version is unpredictable in performance. Buttons on scan screen aren’t working. I couldn’t batch up load. Typing in fields before storing is difficult. Cursor keeps moving.
