The fact that Noika releases its own set of apps for its range of Lumia devices is no surprise, but when Samsung does that, one tends to sit up and take notice. After all, Samsung is well known for focusing on its Galaxy apps for Android devices. Nevertheless, the company has launched a business card reader for its Windows devices called ATIV BizCard.
The app uses the camera on ATIV phones along with optical character recognition in order to scan a business card. Alternately, users can use the camera flash, manually click a photo, or make use of a previously snapped photo from the gallery to import the information to the Contacts. The information can of course be verified and edited if necessary before saving.
While there are plenty of third party business card scanners on the Windows Store, its nice to see Samsung make an effort in that direction. You can download ATIV BizCard from the Windows Phone Store for the price of free.
