Business Card Reader Pro gains vCard and Salesforce exporting [bonus: giveaway]

Business Card Reader Pro

Business Card Reader Pro by German developer Shape allows you to quickly add contacts to iOS by scanning their business card with your iPhone’s or iPad’s back camera.

Featuring an accurate text recognition engine supporting fifteen languages, background image processing, LinkedIn search and integration with CRM systems, Business Card Reader Pro gets the job done whether you’re scanning a few business cards or adding hundreds of new contacts to your shared company address book.

Released Wednesday, the new Business Card Reader Pro version 3.3 allows you to export your entries in the industry-standard vCard format for hassle-free importing to a myriad of online and desktop address book apps and PIM tools.

The new version also fixes crashes on iOS 8 and enables exporting to Salesforce. Best of all, Shape has kindly provided us with a few promo codes that we’re giving away to you guys at the bottom of this article.

Business Card Reader Pro is $6.99 in the App Store.

After scanning a business card, the app “reads” the picture using advanced text recognition technology and enters the data into appropriate fields of your iOS address book.

Exporting to Salesforce is free for existing customers, otherwise available as a subscription. Shape has put together a pair of support documents explaining how to integrate Business Card Reader Pro with Salesforce and existing CRM systems.

To redeem the app for free, use one of the following promo codes provided by Shape.
