Most Useful App Ever

Yesterday I discovered the most useful app EVER.

It’s called CardMunch.

Use it on your iPhone to take photos of business cards.  The CardMunch app automatically will transcribe the card and link to the contact’s LinkedIn profile.  You can save the contact info to your iPhone or forward the .vcf file to your Gmail.  You also can invite the contact to connect on LinkedIn.  The transcription is remarkably accurate.

I spent over an hour yesterday sorting and photographing the pile of old business cards sitting in my drawer.  Now they’re all on my phone and searchable, with additional data from LinkedIn for contacts who have LinkedIn accounts.  Super, super useful.
