Scanning Business Cards with Your Phone

E-mail Print PDF

Occasionally someone will mention that they wish they had an easy way to enter business cards into their phone contacts. Well, there is an easy way with Google Goggles.

This app is available for both Android phones and iPhones. Install the app and use it to take a picture of a business card. It will search the card for text and find the name and contact information. A menu will pop up with a bunch of options. For most business cards you'll see a button to add the contact as well as a call option for the number, and email option for the email address, and a navigation option for the physical address. A Google search will also be performed listing related information.

If you're set up to sync your contacts to an online account you share with your computer, you can use this method to add contacts to your computer as well. As with most image recognition, this isn't going to work 100% of the time. The more colorful and different a business card is, the harder it will be for the program to find the relevant information. The success rate is pretty impressive though. Give it a try and check out the other features of Google Goggles while you're at it.
