[prMac.com] Moscow, Russia - ABBYY(R), a leading provider of document recognition, document capture, and linguistic technologies and services, today announced ABBYY Business Card Reader 4.0, a new version of its business card reading and contact managing application for the Apple(R) iPhone(R). In addition to the direct transfer of contact data from business cards to the iPhone address book, the updated version allows users to easily upload recognized photos of business cards to the new CardHolder archive, making the images searchable and convenient to use.
CardHolder allows iPhone users to quickly upload, recognize and archive images of their business cards, and transfer selected contacts into their phone's address book as needed. This helps back-up contact information contained in the address book, track the communication history of business contacts and keep seldom used contact data in a separate location. Additionally, CardHolder provides a quick search option and sorts captured photographs by first name, last name, company name and photo creation date. Contact fields of the photos stored in CardHolder are also "clickable" so a user can dial a phone number, send an e-mail or activate any link directly from the image with a single touch.
ABBYY Business Card Reader 4.0 allows users to instantly search for information about new contacts across popular social and business networks such as Twitter(R), Facebook(R) and LinkedIn(R), and online maps. The application now recognizes text in Korean, bringing the total number of supported languages to 20, including both monolingual and multilingual business cards.
The free trial version of ABBYY Business Card Reader 4.0 for the iPhone allows users to preview recognition results on the device's display, save the full name and first detected phone number to the address book, and upload up to 3 images of business cards to CardHolder. The trial also supports the look-up of relevant information about the contact in Facebook.
