iPhone App Turns Scanned Business Cards Into LinkedIn Connections
Professional social network updates CardMunch to include better usability and interface.
LinkedIn has launched a new version of its CardMunch application on the iPhone that allows users to convert business cards into digital contacts. The user simply takes a photo of the business card and the app automatically recognizes the text and matches it with the person’s LinkedIn profile. The user can then get a glimpse of more information such as mutual contacts, credentials and education.
The interface of CardMunch has also been updated to include a Rolodex-feel where the user can swipe through the digital business cards. The app also allows notes to be added to contact card while the card is being processed.
