Contacts have a major role to play in a business and can determine its success to a large extent. In the past, contact details were printed on business cards which were carried around in wallets or saved in personal diaries. But if you have a bunch of cards, organizing and maintaining your collection can be irksome. Penpower technology provides an ideal solution to overcome this problem and save your cards in a more sophisticated manner. The WorldCard HD app stores your contacts on your iPad with an instant click of your camera.
All your business contact details will be sorted out as into the respective fields and stored as records on your iPad. There is no need for manual entry. This is one of the best apps to manage your business cards. I have tried using it with a few of my cards and got successful results. What really caught my attention in this app is its functioning. WorldCard HD works on OCR (Optical Character Recognition) technology and provides accurate character recognition.
There are many more innovative features in WorldCard HD. Batch Card Recognition is an awesome feature which helps you scan multiple cards. You can easily connect to Google Maps and use this app for making searches on social networking sites.
Though this app has many great features, there are a few drawbacks too. The image taken by the iPad is not good enough for recognition and this is a major drawback. But the developers have tried to overcome this issue with the option of adding images from iPhone 4S/4/3GS Photo Stream or with the help of iCloud or Dropbox storage services. The second drawback is that the app is a bit expensive.
Overall, this app is best suited for business people. I believe that this app can definitely provide you with the required support to manage your business smartly. WorldCard HD is available in the iTunes Store for $14.99.
