  1. For all of us perfectionists: in case you are not completely satisfied with the autocrop, you can fix the edges with the manual crop feature.

  1. Color and image quality enhancement. In order to achieve that, we added color filters and size optimization. E.g. if a business card is photographed at an angle, the BCR is going to fix it turning a “trapeze” into a proportional rectangle.

  2. Now you can save both sides of your business card. How? Scan the front side, choose Add back image at the bottom of the screen, take a photo of the back and save the whole card.

To see the back of a business card swipe to the left when viewing the front side.
