As a child, I loved collecting business cards. There were so many neat colors and designs, and it was fun picking them up everywhere I went. Even though I had no purpose for the cards, being that I was seven years old, I took the time to organize them in a scrapbook to keep them orderly and neat.
Funny enough, today I loathe business cards for the mere reason of clutter. While I still love a well-designed card and the purpose the cards serve, I want nothing more than to get the info into my contacts and the card off my desk ASAP.
Recently, I was introduced to the CamCard – an app that will help me accomplish my goal of quickly eliminating business card clutter. All I need to do is photograph the business card with my iPhone (the app is also available for other smartphones) and it scans the information directly into my contacts. It allows me to verify if the info is all correct, make any necessary edits and even saves a picture of the card for future reference. Also, I love being able to scan the card almost immediately after receiving it so that I don’t get back logged on entering people’s info into my contacts.
The CamCard app will not only help you eliminate clutter, but it will also save you time when initially entering people’s contact info and when looking for it in the future.
