    Default A question about business cards and contacts

    Is there a way to take a pic of the card and have it load all the info in your contacts, i.e. name, number, fax, email, website, address etc...

    Please do not post pictures of a business card. I am sure that you have no bad intention, but if we allow you to do it then others would start and some can be posting without the owners approval, or advertising

    There are several apps in the Play Store that do this. For example: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...intsig.BCRLite

    I can't find the one I used to use but you can browse through the "similar apps" etc. This one has a fairly good review base and has over 5 million downloads, but I'm not familiar with this specific developer.

    The S5 has this function built in. Open up your contacts, tap the three vertical dots in the upper right corner, and tap "Business cards." From there, just hit the + in the corner. I experimented a little bit and it seemed to work decently.

    Exactly what I was looking for

    Awesome feature! I didn't know it did that. A lot easier.

    The built in feature in the contact list is only so-so. The OCR is about equal to what I had on my desktop during the 90's. If you go this route, you will need to correct the spelling of pretty much every word by hand. It would be faster to just enter the information manually.
    Can anyone recommend an app with better character recognition that can integrate with the Samsung contact list without requiring a bank robbery to pay for it?
