  • Updated review

    As with others who have recently posted here the app no longer works with the new iOS. Don’t waste your money on this app unless you see others who have posted review saying that the problems are fixed
  • Please update it to iOS12

    By MovieFan2011
    Used to be great but no longer works....
  • Still have to edit

    By Daniel Mckay
    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. Now I have updated to the newest version of IOS on an iPhone 8 and the app wont open.

  • iOS 12 Crash

    By Lakeside2MD
    Any similar app that can read the format bcr pro uses ? I’m willing to pay for a new version if they fix this and make the integration features work better.

    By long time customer now unhappy
    The app crashes ever since I installed the latest iOS update. I reloaded the app reinstalled iOS, nothing. Have they gone out of business???!!
  • Upgrade to OS12 Needed

    By _Yas
    Since I updated my OS for he new OS12 the app opens and crashes immediately from the screen. It’s open in the background but when selected it crashes back again and again. An upgrade is due to get it to work. I hope BCR are working on it.
