Version 8.15

For those of you who avoid subscriptions, we’ve added three options to boost BCR and meet all your needs.
+ If you want to work with card database on your computer, then use Export to Excel from BCR. Activate this feature in Settings through in-app purchase and use it anytime you need.

+ You have several devices or plan to switch from other platform to iOS or vice versa? Enable the Synchronization in Settings to store your cards in the cloud so that they are available on any device!

+ Don’t know what to choose? Just buy Premium forever and unlock all Premium-account features for permanent use, including updates.

Winston Churchill once said, “I am a man of simple tastes; I am easily satisfied with the best.” If that’s what you thought after working with BCR, you can share your experience on our App Store page to help others make right choice.

Version 8.12

+ Added introduction screens to help you discover the features of BCR.
+ If you have more than 20 business cards, you can quickly jump to the contact’s name or to the date of the photo using the alphabet on the right, just like in the iPhone address book.
+ Some users complained that business cards disappeared when they accidentally switched to another group, so now all business cards are shown by default.
+ Improved performance and stability.

We are working on a major update and are looking forward to your comments and suggestions. Your feedback is very useful both to us, the developers, and to other users of the app

Version 8.11

+ Users of the latest iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s plus phones can now take advantage of the new 3D Touch technology to quickly scan a new business card, find a contact, or e-mail their own business cards. Simply press a little bit harder on the app icon and select the desired action from the list.

+ To make the app ready for iOS 9, we completely overhauled its database functionality, that’s why our previous update took us so long to release. Now the app is lightning fast, even if you have more than 1,000 business cards.

We really appreciate it that you have chosen to install the BCR app on iOS 9 and are looking forward to your feedback in the App Store!

Version 8.9

“A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.” Guided by this Chinese proverb, we embarked on an ambitious journey to support even more languages in our business card scanning app.
+ BCR can now read business cards in Chinese Traditional, Chinese Simplified, and Japanese, with the total number of supported OCR languages now standing at 25, an absolute record among business card scanning apps.
+ To make the app even more friendly towards our Chinese users, we’ve translated it into Chinese. Nǐ hǎo!
+ Now you can automatically e-mail your business card to each new contact you add. Simply save your own b-card in “My Cards” group and confirm that you want it to be sent automatically each time you add a new contact. Of course, you can always turn this feature off if the app becomes too friendly with strangers
+ The text of intro letter with your b-card can be easily edited in Settings. You can even edit intro for each language separately.

And of course work is already afoot to support the new features offered by iOS 9 in our next update.
We hope everyone had a fun summer vacation. Now it’s back to work, and we’re looking forward to your feedback in the App Store.

Version 8.8

Have you ever found yourself out of business cards on an important meeting? The new version of ABBYY Business Card Reader can spare you plenty of awkwardness by enabling you to send a digital copy of your business card to the e-mail address on the card of a new acquaintance. This only takes a few taps: open Business Card Reader, take a picture of the business card, scroll down to the bottom of the screen with data from the card and tap the big Send your business card button. Just make sure you have a card to send by adding your own cards in all of the languages you may need to the My Cards list beforehand.

This feature lets you save paper, avoid cluttering up the pockets and desks of potential partners and provides a viable backup option in case you forget to bring your cards to a conference or expo. If you think it’s great, feel free to drop us a few words on BCR’s page, positive feedback makes for great morning reading.

Version 8.7

Know when to stop. That was our thought when we made our twenty-first change to the app. Here’s what you’ll find in this new release:
+ OPERATIONS ON MULTIPLE ITEMS: Select 3, 5, 8 or even all of the business cards in the app to delete them or move to another group.
+ QR CODE RECOGNITION: If there is a QR code on a business card, it will be automatically recognized and the captured date saved to the Notes field.
+ IMPROVED EDITING: Now you can change the order of the first, last, and middle names; a standard keyboard is now available for editing phone numbers -- with brackets, hyphen, and a space bar -- so that you can format numbers as you see fit; when you create a new field, a thumbnail image of the business card will be shown to help you find the relevant data; if you rotate the phone to landscape view while editing, the entire business card will be displayed.
+ IMPROVED VIEWING: The group of a business card and its geotag are displayed in the Other section; if there is no name on a business card or if it’s hard to spot, the company name or URL will be shown in the viewer.
… And there are lots of other small improvements. We won’t waste your time by listing them all here. Instead, we invite you to take a look at the updated app and tell us what you think, so that we can immediately start working on an even better new release!

Version 8.5

Contact data capture and management in a FLASH… In this latest release, we have added some “superpowers” to make operation of the app virtually hands free!
• Auto-image capture function: Simply point your camera at a business card and the app will focus on it, detect its edges, and take a picture virtually by itself!
• Auto-blur detection: The app will automatically detect out of focus photos and prompt you to take another picture.
• Digitized business cards look crisper and brighter thanks to ABBYY’s proprietary color filters.
• Faster than ever: The new version captures text from photos 30% faster, even on older devices.
As always, we are keen to have your feedback, comments and suggestions for updates in the future. Please feel free to leave us your positive feedback on the BCR App Store page.

Version 8.3

Dear friends,
We wish you a Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year. By popular request, we have introduced the following important improvements to Business Card Reader:
+ We have completely redesigned the card viewer so that all contact data are now conveniently displayed without the need to switch to editing mode
+ Now you can also manage your business cards on your desktop computer by exporting them to Microsoft Excel. Simply select Export to Excel in the app Settings, and your entire database of contacts will be copied to a CSV file and attached to an e-mail message. On your Mac or Windows PC, open the CSV file by selecting File>Open.

We would appreciate your comments in the App Store for this update. That would be the best New Year present for us!

Version 8.2

ABBYY has just turned 25, and we’re glad to see you with us!
While Apple is still working on iOS 8.2, we have released our BCR 8.2! Here’s what you’ll find in the new edition:
• Owners of the latest Apple devices can now enjoy the unprecedented sharpness and clarity of the app’s main screens we’ve redesigned specifically for iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.
• The long-asked-for feature: once a business card is moved to another group of contacts, the app displays the “success” message.

Please leave a review if you like Business Card Reader! We read every bit of your feedback carefully and it lets us know that what we do is not in vain.
