    In layman's terms this app scans a business card and put all the information in the right boxes and then loads it in to Outlook, and into your phone.

    You can then send an e-mail to that person with in seconds.

    At a recent trade show I used Card Scan to load up the information of people who came by the booth, and then had our PDFs with pricing and information in their hands (also send from the Droid) before they had finished walking down the hall.

    You can store the contacts in any of your synced e-mail accounts of the phone itself.

    Yes it sometimes does not scan properly - missing word espescially when a odd ball scrip is used to print the card, but you have a chance to prof the data before it is stored, and that is a big help. The program is 85% accurate -

    In a business environment where who responds 1st often wins the deal this is a tool, with it's few flaws, is a tool that you need. (hopefully my competition will all own iPHONES and not see this review.)

    Are you sure this works with Outlook? Can anyone verify this and perhaps give me a 2-second rundown on how that works?

    Thanks!

    Friends, I have used camcard Western on my Motorola Droid without any issues, but this week I recommended it to someone to use in an HTC Incredible, and when I attempt to take a picture of a business card, it doesn't process it, but brings up other pictures on the phone. Does anyone know from where I might get some support and help with this issue? Thanks so much in advance!

    How do I export Camcard to Gmail contacts? I tried saving it to the phone contacts thinking it would be an automatic synch but the card is in my phone but not in my Gmail contacts.
    Not much good if I can't synch it to Gmail

    FWIW, just tried this with goggles, and it worked pretty well and allowed import into my phone or Google contacts.

    I love CamCard it works great (give or take a few quircks).

    Now that I have organized my business cards I would like to organize my loyalty program cards. I travel alot and have cards for airlines, hotels etc that I would rather keep in my phone. The ability to scan them with Camcard and file them with a picture of the card would be very useful and help to uncluter my wallet.

    I have Camcard on my Desire HD and I've found it to be hopeless. It misses more than it captures and put information in the wrong boxes.
    I spent more time editing the image it was easier to enter manually.
