OREANDA-NEWS. June 20, 2012. New update of ABBYY Business Card Reader for iPhone®, a smart application for digitizing business cards and managing contact data, offers a range of nice improvements to the user experience when viewing, editing and updating contacts. Let’s see what new benefits you can get out of using ABBYY Business Card Reader 4.99 for iPhone:

Checking Contact Data Has Never Been Easier — Improved interface of ABBYY Business Card Reader allows you to check contact data extracted from a business card against its own image, now displayed on the iPhone’s screen. The program will zoom in any area on the image to help you easily clarify a difficult-to-read name or a foreign address of your new partner without the need to go back to the paper original.

Capture Important Details on the Reverse Side — It is known that the reverse side of a business card is a good place for making small yet valuable notes such as an additional phone number, a meeting date, or an offering you are going to make. Those notes are usually written by hand and, therefore, not available for OCR*. ABBYY Business Card Reader 4.99 for iPhone allows you to add a photo of the reverse side of a business card to supply your new contact with additional data and keep all of the important information in one place on your iPhone.

Add More Notes On-the-Go — The new version delivers improved Notes field which is now always available and active when viewing business cards in the Cardholder, an on-device digital archive for images of business cards. This enhancement makes your work with contacts more flexible and efficient, allowing you to add more notes, easily update and even export them if necessary.

And last but not least: our users can now contribute to the technology development by sending inadequately recognized business cards to ABBYY directly from Business Card Reader. With your help and feedback, our developers will be able to better adjust the product to your needs and further improve Business Card Reader technology. ABBYY ensures absolute confidentiality of all personal data collected.

ABBYY Business Card Reader 4.99 for iPhone is available via the Apple App Store® (accessible through iTunes®) and can be purchased for USD 4.99 or the equivalent in your local currency. For more information about the product, visit http://www.abbyy.com/bcr_iphone.
