With the latest updates, etc., it turned out that it was an app with high demand.


Although I lost my business card in the past, I only had information from the email sending history, etc., and I wanted to register it as a business card management app. So, I decided to make a business card handmade. I wrote the phone number and address by hand, I arranged the characters in the same way as the layout used in most business cards, and scanned using multiple business card management apps. ... this doesn't read the text as expected. Different contents are read, or the letters cannot be determined and blank. Even Eight, which should be manually input by the operating company, did not read the information as you try many times. It is said that the letters are beautiful, but if it is handwritten, it is difficult to distinguish it with a machine because each person has the habit and characteristics of each person. So, when I created and photographed a pseudonym on a website where I could design a business card, it finally read it well. It was a business card that I had in parallel with the app as well as the business card management app, so it was 2018 that I decided to keep and manage it.
