WorldCard Mobile – You will never need to keep business cards anymore

I don’t know about you guys, but I personally hate business cards. Why? Because I can never seem to find them when I need them and typing in email address and phone number to my phone is always a task that I hate. If you guys hate carrying business name cards that your clients have given you, then you will need WorldCard Mobile

Very accurate and quick

I have given it a try and I found it surprisingly  accurate! I have tested on 2 business name cards that I have got from my clients (I worked as a Business Intelligence Consultant as my day job) and both of the cards are recognized and stored into my contacts with no errors.

It is pretty easy to use, just open up the app, tap on camera button, take a picture of the name card and let it recognize the text on the card. WorldCard Mobile for iPhone is pretty smart, it will recognize name, emails, phone numbers, address, company and department with no issue. Very very useful for lazy people like me who always don’t key in the full information and regret later on.

If you are worried that the app’s recognition  might not be prefect (I agree that nothing is perfect), WorldCard Mobile have a Card holder area in the app, where all the Name Cards that you have scanned will be kept there, with the picture taken. Thus even if the recognition software might have mistake, you will at least still have the picture of the name card available.

Overall feeling of WorldCard Mobile

I love this app, to be able to snap a photo of the name card, and let the app the do rest, is awesome for me. The app is pretty accurate and make little mistake. Thus I will highly recommend this app for all who always get name cards during meetings but always misplace them. If you have tons of name cards, you will be able to enter all of them into this app in no time.

The only factor I dislike about this app is the price. It is $6.99, slightly steep from my point of view, but overall a very useful app even for this price point.

Check WorldCard Mobile at the Apple’s App Store now!

Apple’s Educational Announcement on 19 Jan New York City

Apple has sent out invitations to media for an education focused event on 19 January 2012 which will be taking place at Guggenheim Museum New York City. They aren’t hiding from the press, it will be education related.

Thus what we will be seeing from the event will most likely be textbooks available in Apple’s iBook Store. Although it might be not be so interesting for the rest of the world, as there will not be no new product launching, but textbooks coming to iOS will be huge.

This will push iOS devices mainly iPad to be the number one go to for education sector.

 


TidyTilt is iPhone’s Smart Cover but its more than that! [Video]

We have seen tons of iPhone Case/Protector out in the market, most of them are very beautiful and cool. But TidyTilt is not just beautiful, it is also very smart and useful! TidyTilt is inspired by Apple’s iPad Smart cover, shaped and colored very similarly to smart cover.

This is a Kickstart Project started by Zahra Tashakorinia and Derek Tarnow — two design students from Chicago.

TidyTilt is an earbud cord wrap, multi-position kickstand, and mount for iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S. TidyTilt takes up less space than any one of these devices – yet does all three things – without adding something extra to carry.

iPhone Case + Stand

The TidyTilt comes in two parts: a mount that uses a special adhesive to stick to the back of your device, and the kickstand/cover which attaches magnetically. Like the Smart Cover, the kickstand folds up to provide an awesome storage solution for your earbuds when you’re not using them, or to elevate your iPhone for watching movies and showing off your photos.

Do give them your support, as it is really a very cool idea. Check out their demo video below:
