Easy to use. It reads the email address, etc, correctly 90% of the time. Despite every headhot I have (and everyone I know) showing my head up, haystack turned it 90°counterclockwise for some mysterious reason, and there's no option to rotate the photo. This is embarrassing when sharing my contact card via the app, so I generally do not use that feature.

When I start it, half the screen is used asking to create a business card (I don't have a business). When I try to use the app for my intended purpose, it won't focus on card unless the phone is a considerable distance away, so that the card takes up ~ 20% of the photo area, and most of the photo is just my table. Then it didn't seem to automatically crop or allow manual crop. This was in "advanced camera" mode. Maybe these features exist but that the UI is just not intuitive enough. Dunno.

Simple, no-nonsense business tool. My *only* wish would be that it could identify the edges of a card in a photo, and stretch/squash the inevitable trapezoidal shape into a tight rectangle, before saving the pic (a la CamScanner). But this is so lightweight and unobtrusive that I don't even mind. Thanks for providing a decent simple tool without any strings!
