[] Fremont, California - The 2010 MOBI Awards, honors the top achievements made in mobile media, marketing and advertising. Presented by DigiDay, the MOBI Awards' mission is to honor the groundbreaking work in multiple mobile categories, including websites, applications, creative, and agencies.

WorldCard Mobile, the Best Mobile App OCR as appointed by the 2010 MOBI Awards, is the leading business card scanning application for iPhone. Using state of the art OCR (Optical Character Recognition) technology, the app allows users to instantly transfer information from business cards into their contacts without any manual input.

"It is a great honor to win this award," Dr. Tsay, CEO of Penpower Inc. says, "We are committed to the constant innovation and enhancements of WorldCard Mobile and thankful to the MOBI Awards for recognizing these efforts."

Since its release into Apple's iTunes Store, WorldCard Mobile has steadily maintained a top 10 position in the business category and continues to update and improve their application to provide users with the utmost usability, functionality and flexibility. This is clearly demonstrated in the app's ever-increasing speed, accuracy and response to user needs for features such as additional languages, enhanced recognition ability and email signature capture.

WorldCard Mobile has already been praised for its superior recognition abilities and functionality from CTIA, who awarded it the 1st place Emerging Technology Award in the Mobile Applications: Business Productivity category for 2010.

With the iPhone's camera, Penpower Inc., recognized the opportunity presented by the iPhone to move their already renowned business card scanning software to a new platform.
