The app works simple enough. Use the Android smartphone’s built-in camera to capture a business card’s image anytime, anywhere. WorldCard Mobile’s OCR recognizes and supports multiple languages including English, French, German, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese and Dutch, to sort out the contact info by name, title, company, phone, fax, address, email, etc.
Once contact information is added, users can make phone calls, send text, email, Google map addresses and view websites all from within the application. WorldCard Mobile takes contact management one-step further by allowing contact info to be exported to the phone or user’s Google contacts.
