iPhone App of the Week: CardMunch
Thursday, November 24, 2011/
If you’re in business then you’re likely collecting a lot of business cards from everyone you meet. After a while, it can create a bit of a pile.
There are plenty of apps that compile business card data, but CardMunch is a new app that integrates LinkedIn, and could be worth a look.
To use the app, you just take a picture of a business card, and the app automatically inputs that data as a new contact. It then allows you to directly connect to that person through LinkedIn.
Users can also view LinkedIn profile information, and if the app isn’t quite recorded correctly, manual information input is allowed as well.
Good business card readers are hard to come by. Since this one is free, it’s definitely worth checking out.
