BC Reader - iPhone App

Short post for iPhone buffs out there...

Thanks to Anthony Samuels for introducing me to BC Reader recently. Perfect for anyone who doesn't know what to do with Business Cards when they are doled out to you. Obviously the content is valuable and you might want to look the person up sometime. But since everyman/woman and their dog carries them now-a-days, the stack gets so huge that you can't find them when you need it anyway.
Enter BC Reader. Download the app from the Apps Store (cost $4.99). Each time you get a card you take a photo of it. It scans the photo and enters the details into your address book. Done. Throw the card away.

  1. I love this idea! That is really a smart way to keep up with all of your business contacts.

  2. Wow! I like this...I have a whole stack of business cards that I haven't had time to enter. If people move or change jobs (as they do) does it update the details? i.e. same name different number or email?

  3. Wow! That is so cool. I have a lot of business cards myself and I always loose them. I really wise I had an I phone. Since I have so many business cards I think I would still a have to hire someone to talk all the pictures of the cards to upload all the material to my cell phone.
