CardMunch is brand new business card scanning application for the iPhone. However, it’s not yet another such app that relies only on OCR, but something arguably better.
First of all, it’s fast – apparently, it takes no more than 3 seconds to take a photo of a business card and start processing it.
Second, it’s way more accurate. The unique twist is that CardMunch hires real workers to verify each card because they want to “take accuracy to the next level.” So it’s not cheaper, but definitely more reliable solution.
CardMunch will recognize, capture, transcribe, and create a contact in your phone. You can also have a separate address books to keep business contacts separate from personal ones.
The application is available in two flavors – paid one, which costs $2.99 and comes with 10 credits, and a free one that includes 5 free business card scans. The free version is available as such (for free) only for a limited time. And when you’re done with your credits, you can always buy more right from within the app…
Finally, CardMunch will soon be available for Android and BlackBerry devices.
