Let’s give a warm welcome to iOS 11! We know that you’ve been waiting for this for quite a while. Now we’re ready to introduce to you the new Business Card Reader with some spectacular features designed specifically for iOS 11!
iOS 11 allows developers to implement augmented reality, neural networks, and machine-learning-based features in their apps. We’re excited to release our iOS 11-powered three excellent features in BCR.
The Augmented Reality Demo Mode
Business Card Reader now is so cool that it can create a virtual business card placed on a surface around you so you could try the app in action even if you don’t have a business card at hand! Experience how the information on a business card is easily captured by the app, to become a digital contact in a matter of seconds. The new AR demo mode was created with Apple’s ARKit. We should note that an augmented reality feature is particularly rare for business productivity apps—that’s why we’re so proud of our new BCR. Want to try it already? Follow these steps:
- Open the camera in BCR.
- Turn on the Demo Mode.
- Move your device over a surface until the virtual business card appears.
- Scan and enjoy!
Note! This feature is available only in iOS 11 for iPhone SE, 6s and above.
The Improved Crop
Business card boundaries detection and autocrop accuracy have been improved by 65% thanks to the new detection technology. Now you can enjoy the effortless capture of any business card! The new autocrop is working twice faster and provides you with the most accurate card image regardless of the original photo.
We’ve also added Password AutoFill, so you could start your work with BCR synchronization as quickly as possible.
