First card was a jumbled mess. A couple of fields came in but most were gibberish. To make matters worse the all thought the company name have some crazy characters in it like
Card scanner app 2/5
Good idea but has lockup issues on iPhone 6. It locks up on me when I am correcting the card information it has incorrectly interpreted when it scanned a card. I wind up having to shut the app down and rescan the card, starting back at the beginning. Frustrating is being polite. Deciding if I want to remove it and ask for money back. Could the problem be on the Zoho side? Wouldn't surprise me.
Not universal 2/5
Unfortunately, this app works only for classical and standard cards. It cannot adapt to creative ones so you spend time editing everything
Love it 5/5
By Dr. Et
Saves me a ton of time.
Simple, efficient and useful 5/5
Mostly accurate with hopes it will only improve in time. Love the ability to update to multiple services at once (Zoho, Google, etc.). Hoping they will add ability to scan directly to iPhone (Apple iCloud) contacts.
Simple and works 5/5
Easy to use, saves me tons of time, Take a snap of a biz card, change around any odd fields, dictate my Notes and Tasks, UPLOAD. Boom: into Zoho CRM with notes, added a task, and added to my contact manager.
Sales Representative 5/5
For most standard business cards, this captures names, job titles, company name, phone number, email, etc. perfectly. Sometimes if a business card has cursive, or other your regular fonts, it may have trouble, but so does every card scanner app. This app is definitely worth $.99.I collect a lot of business cards my job, and the saves me a lot of time. I had one problem syncing it to my CRM and got immediate support without having to pay any fee. That is fantastic as far as I'm concerned.
Awful - doesn't work 1/5
By Jennifer BH
Information came through with lots of typos. I had to re-type most of it. Then couldn't get data to upload to Zoho. Totally useless.
Not working at all 1/5
Does not recognize anything , no phone no name no address , every thing is wrong , I tried few card but no result
YOU BROKE MY APP 1/5
Shuts down when you save 1/5
By Kcal man jack
Absolutely doesn't work. After repeated attempts every time I try to save the app shuts down and does not upload the contact information into zoho.
Not working 1/5
By mc badger
I just downloaded this app and it scanned the card relatively accurately however when I hit save the program shuts down.
WON’T UPLOAD 1/5
The point of the app is to scan the business card of the person I want in Zoho. This app scans the card, but doesn’t upload it to Zoho, which defeats the whole purpose of having it. FIX IT, and I’ll adjust my rating.
Soho card reader 5/5
By Arch attach
This is a great product for me because it's easy to get all the business cards into the database.
Still needs alot of work 1/5
I tried to scan 20 different cards and not one of them scanned correctly. I understand the OCR technology is not perfect but I am sure a 0% accuracy rate can be improved upon. Unfortunately, it is quicker for me to manually enter the data.
Works well 5/5
By Ed Shocky
Captures phone numbers well and pretty accurate on email addresses. Upload to CRM is quick 5-10 seconds. This software is really nice thanks Zoho.
OCR needs work 2/5
Love Zoho, however this app is not quite ready for prime time. The OCR reader unfortunately has so many errors, it's hard to scan without having to edit. I have tried multiple backgrounds, flash, no flash etc. Love the idea though, would like to see it fixed.
Great Tool for salesman 5/5
Saves me tons of time in updating contacts and trying to keep track of little pieces of paper. Once source solution for contact management. Well done zoho!
Not worth $4.99 1/5
By Jim Hogan
Looks like ZOHO has a long way to go with this App. Phone # formatting is "non-existent," no notes/description capture possible & if adding to leads there is no way to choose "status" that triggers some of my workflow automations. Also, i have to edit most cards can info before submit. Anyone know how to get you money back?
Barely Works 1/5
Barely works, frequently crashes. No way to scan a contact card to an existing customer. Cumbersome data entry. CamCard works much better. Can't load info to Outlook.
Disappointing ZOHO Scanner review 1/5
It's coupled to ZOHO but has the worst recognition of any OCR (card or other) I've used in years! You scan and then you HAVE to edit EVERYTHING! Really disappointing!!!! Don't spend the money unless you're really far behind entering cards and then only expect minimal help from this.
Keeps Crashing 1/5
Have used older version that worked relatively well but most recent will crash every time you try to make changes to info. Please fix!
By Margin garden
Doesn't work waste of money!
Doesn't work 1/5
Just downloaded the app and tried scanning two basic cards and did not pick up any information other than that the picture.
Crashes!!! Use Older Version 1/5
Was using previous version and worked great in synching to ZOHO. Was prompted to upgrade and now it's useless because it does not synch. Crashes even in adjusting settings.
Don't upgrade until it is fixed!
Crash while connecting to zoho 1/5
By Anatoli Pechkov
This version doesn't allow to store the data in zoho - simply crashing
Improvements Needed 2/5
By Ezra's account
2 stars ONLY because it merges with Zoho contact easily. Card reader option is the worse of the 4 apps I tried. 9 out of 10 cards, it doesn't read a single line correctly and you'll have to delete it all and manually enter the information. Scanning/reading needs major improvements. If it didn't sync to Zoho, I'd kept using other apps.
Needs work 2/5
By Say It
App makes loading contacts a lot easier by scanning and uploading from your phone. However, the scan does not accommodate a lot of business card formats. This takes away the convince. Spent a lot of time fixing scan errors. Tools 20 mins to scan 3 cards and none of which scanned accurately. Took a lot of massaging of the data and plenty retakes.
Every phone number as Work? 1/5
This app needs to differentiate the type of phone number the OCR recognizes -mobile, work, fax, etc.-. Reading all phone numbers as “work”, not been able to identify the type of contact number and delaying fixing this issue, will compromise your app success. It requires also proper sync with all the fields in the Zoho CRM platform.
Better than nothing 3/5
Let's be honest: this app is trying to solve a tough problem, namely doing OCR and business analysis on a bunch of pixels (the iphone photo of the card). The only other app I have used that is comparable is Evernote Hello. (I am sure there are many more, but I only know these two, because I wanted an app specific for the underlying web app, Evernote, or in this case, ZOHO CRM). The biggest plus for this app is that all details, including a JPG attachment with the actual photo of the card, go into the right place in ZOHO CRM. That by itself can save me some work. Is the accuracy where I would it to be? Probably not. But it does work reasonably well if the card is white and the text is not obscured by colored backgrounds etc.
It takes several seconds to process a picture, and probably half a minute to verify all the info is correct (I do that straight in ZOHO).
I would like it if the app checked if it finds the person on LinkedIn, similar to what Evernote Hello does.
Good start 4/5
Thanks for this. It is simple but a good start. I would suggest adding a 'copied text' feature. Also found an issue where the photos are inaccessible after I click access photos. Need to be able to unlock access. Please add new features we ask for. Thanks again.
Terrible app 1/5
By Shawn Rogers
How do I get my money back? I tried it on several standard business cards received error twice on first card and finally got it in. The app didn't enter any address info and had other errors on the entry. The app never took the second card from the same company. Not ready for prime time, save your $$$ skip this app.
