App does what it claims, but doesn't take the best pictures at least not with the Samsung s20. Flash didn't help. Glossy cards were the worst to photograph. It would be better if there were a photo edit. The OCR seemed to be spot on and put everything in the right categories. Quite easy to navigate even for a rooky like myself.

Hello, thank you for your positive review and feedback about our business card scanner! A particularly good photo quality is not relevant for the recognition quality. Nevertheless, we share the suggestion with our product team, which is already working on the next improvements. Best regards, your snapADDY team

I own a business where I am consistently meeting dozens of new people every week. I average 2-30 business cards every week and this is the best scanner I've ever used. Scanners I've used in the past we're frustrating to use because they wouldn't read the information correctly and I was doing twice the work. I love all of the features and that it actually reads the information accurately weather the card is landscape or portrait Style.

Pretty good so far! I notice the autofill isn't always accurate but it's not too much hassle to make corrections. I wish there was a way to categorize the scanned cards. For example, those related to work could be sorted into a business folder and those that are for artisans you'd like to follow go in an art folder, etc. Just my two cents.

Hello Ms Cameron, thanks for your review! The aim of the snapADDY CardScanner is to digitize the business cards and store them in your smartphone or CRM system. That's why there are no folders in the app. Kind regards, your snapADDY team
