What to Do with All Those Business Cards

CardMunchLogoLinkedIn powers an innovative iPhone app called CardMunch.  Use your iPhone to scan in a business card, a team of data entry folks is waiting to transcribe the information on the other end (yes, really!), and voila! a new contact is created in your address book with all of the individual's information in tow!

Don't want to clutter your primary address book with every contact who hands you a card?  No problem, CardMunch will allow you to create a second, separate CardMunch address book as an alternative.


From CardMunch:

CardMunch is a mobile business card transcription service that automatically recognizes, captures, transcribes, and creates the contact in the user's phone. Instead of relying on Optical Character Recognition (OCR), CardMunch uses a scalable human workforce to transcribe each business card and verify the information is stored correctly.
