  2. I don’t know, Sandee. It’s taking a picture of the card, but the software may be looking for that strip of metal that the card stands on in the image to know where to start scanning for info.

  3. Just downloaded the app that works with the stand. And tested it on two very highly graphic styled cards. One with all sorts of colored text and the other with text on a wood-looking background.

    The app works very well. It got part of the text that I didn’t think it would do.

    I will most likely buy the full version for $1.

    However, I also see how the stand could help the app work much better. But since I don’t get a lot of business cards, I’ll just stick with the app, alone.

    But I’m very pleased with their app.
