    "Business cards weren't a big deal for me for a long time, but after getting new job in a different field, they became vital. I had a desk drawer filling up with them and came back from conferences with more every 2-3 weeks. This app helped me immensely in getting a handle on all of the value in those cards, keeping the information organized and integrating it with other functions -- no more digging up the right card to find an address, then putting that into Maps. I'd go so far as to say this helped me get a raise at my last review!"

DID YOU KNOW?

Did you know that Chinese people are so particular with the way you exchange business cards? It is no surprise that they attach a value to such cards because it originated in China back in the 15th century. The primary purpose of these cards is to inform someone about a meeting. So much effort was put into making these because they were usually decorated with calligraphy with the sender’s name and title. Interestingly, Chinese people, especially businessmen, always take into consideration your effort to print a dual-sided Chinese business card with simplified Chinese on one side and an English version on the other because for them it is a great manifestation of respect towards their culture. 

Although nodding or bowing is the traditional way of greeting in China, shake hands has become more popular among them. However, the Chinese are not so much into touching strangers so be cautious not to touch, hug, or make anybody contacts as this may result in an unclosed business transaction. Usually, exchanging of business cards are done upon the initial meet up—this is the moment the way of exchanging becomes essential. You should hold the card with both hands and make sure that the card is neat, no dog-ears corners and ensure that you are holding it Chinese side-up, facing your contact so he can read it.

    "This is an okay scanner-app, but it’s not perfect. For the most part, it scans business cards correctly, but if the card has any sort of complex design, I find that not all information is scanned properly. Having to rescan cards and manually entering information can be a bit time consuming, making the app seem less effective. Overall, I would recommend finding another app that’s capable of dealing with complex designs and information-heavy business cards."

    "I am using the IOS app that works really well. No need for scanning. I created 2 'Acards' (the second one with Linkedin) and I can push them to people I meet via SMS, email or my QR code. Directly in their phones, even if they don't have the app. They go on my link and can either save it in their contact or, (better even) get the app and connect with me. Then we have access to each-other's updates. The radar feature is awesome! You see there other app users and connect with one click. I hope more people will join the network so we can exchange contact in the radar. Really useful tool for when you go to networking events!"

You can make more than one set of contacts, that you share both within the app (through a radar) and also outside app, via sms, email or qr code. No need for scanning, copying or anything like that. Once you make an account and "Acard", you're all set and there is no need for business cards! Not to mention that you stop filling people's pockets with papers :)"
