A lot of people use their iPhone to manage their daily life and contacts. Many iPhone apps let you enter your contacts’ information manually. Some even allow you to take pictures of business cards and have them converted into digital text. Of course, the latter group of apps are not 100% accurate. That’s where Econtact Pro comes into play. It’s designed for business professionals who want to add their new contacts’ information to their iPhone without having to worry about the accuracy of their converter app. Econtact Pro is a manual transcription business card scanner that gives you just that.
Econtact Pro is for those of you who are still not sold on the text-recognition technology used in some iPhone contact apps. With this app, you take pictures from business cards, add your notes and pictures, and send them to be transcribed by the company behind this app. Each 10 cards will cost you $1.99 though you can buy better plans and save some money.
The app does what it promises well. The quality is high and the process takes much less time than with other apps. Of course, if you gather a ton of business cards each day, then your costs can add up.
Econtact Pro is a very unique app and will have its fans. Econtact does guarantee 100% accuracy. It even gives you the opportunity to earn credits by referring other people. Even though the developers promise full privacy and security, I just can’t take a chance with other people’s information. So that’s a deal breaker. If you can get past that, Econtact can save you time and effort managing your contacts.
