Business cards are one of the most common methods of exchanging contact information, and if your like me you probably have a ton scattered all around. Most people at one point in time have received a business card from someone and then tossed it in the heap of other business cards. The main reason for the toss, is that no one like to take the time to manually enter all the contact information into their mobile device. The process is tedious time consuming and just plain annoying.
Enter Card2Contact, this little app developed for the BlackBerry can easily do it all for you. All you have to do is take a picture. Yes, it really is that simple. I was a bit skeptical about this myself so I decided to give it a try and after a quick snap of the business card, and a short time the contact info was taken from the card and placed neatly into my BlackBerry contacts.
The way the app works is actually pretty neat. It uses the native camera from your BlackBerry to take a picture of the business card. Then from there it is uploaded to Card2Contact's Manual Transcription Team. From there is sent back to your device to be stored into your contact list. The app works on a credit based system so $10 will get you 30 credits. These credits are then used to upload your business cards.
Card2Contact can be downloaded in BlackBerry App World.
