It seems fairly accurate on the first 5 or so cards I tried it out on. It gets most everything right but you definitely have to proofread them before you save. At least it saves a copy of the card you can go back later and view. This is golden.

Thanks for the tip.

In the contacts app there is a new icon with a picture of a business card with a small camera over the lower right corner of the card. Tap on that, take a picture of a standard business card and Viola! it captures all the info in contact fields that you can edit before you save.

Open Contacts, tap on the + symbol
Choose where you want the new contact saved
Tap on the Business card icon
Take a photo of the card. Try it without flash in a well lit room for best results.
Check the details
Tap on Save

Thanks to The Daily Note II/3 - Samsung Galaxy Note 2 & Note 3 Daily Videos for pointing this out for us.

Ok, So if I don't learn anything else today, this one thing will make my whole day worth it. Thanks!!!
