LinkedIn Matches Business Cards With Profile Data In New Version Of iOS App CardMunch:
Earlier this year, LinkedIn acquired CardMunch, an iPhone app that lets you take a snapshot of a business card and have it added to your iPhone contacts. Today, LinkedIn is relaunching the CardMunch iPhone app with a brand new mobile experience for the professionals on the social network.
For background, CardMunch uses Mechanical Turk to convert business cards into phone contacts. In fact, millions of business cards have been digitized on CardMunch to date.
While CardMunch used to be a paid app, the iOS app is now free for users.
I have been using CardMunch for a while to import business cards and the added information should be very useful. -- Douglas
