Amazing free app. I understand it is supposed to be a demo for OCR tools. If that is the case, a pretty amazing demo. The recognition is excellent (just a few misses). There are sorting options and you can chose to send particular contacts to your contact book. One can always be picky and ask for some minor changes (zooming in the card outside edit mode) but this app beats, hands down, most if not all the paid versions that I tried.

It says in the description you can export to CSV when you cannot. I tried multiple times to export to CSV, the only reason I downloaded this app, and nothing. I contacted their support which was extremely unhelpful and didn't give an answer to my basic question, "how do I do the thing you promised". Would give zero stars if I could for blatant lies.

Hello Samantha. Exporting to CSV is a great idea and something that we are looking into supporting. As it stands, we do not have CSV in our description. We do however support VCF (VCARD). Sorry for the confusion. Be on the lookout for our next update which should have more export options.
