I go to a lot of events and collect many business cards. I used to come back home and spend a couple hours scanning those cards into my computer. Now, I have the iPad and a few programs that can take pictures and OCR to get information.
One of those programs is WorldCard HD. This card scanner is geared for those people who get cards from around the country. The app will take a picture of the card and use OCR technology to recognize the text.
Why Having a Clean Business Card is Important.
If I scan these cards, I am going from one card to the next. I try to make sure all email info is correct, but if a card is hard to read and the program cannot OCR the text, I might just throw the card away. You could lose sales simply by your unreadable card.
Options of WorldCard HD
WorldCard HD has the ability to scan and recognize in multiple languages. Therefore, if you go to China or Mexico and deal with cards you can still get them cataloged. WorldCard HD lets you upload to dropbox or iCloud and also can keep the picture of the card on file. You can even scan the back if necessary.
WorldCard HD is $14.99 in the app store.Get great iPad accessories at ZAGG - 20% off with code Geekazine

Apple Earpods on the iPad
Apple came out with a new set of earbuds for the iPhone5. I take a listen to them using the iPad and show you the new design. The earbuds are exactly like the old ones in every other way. The new ear speaker configuration brings a better sound without blocking the ambient sounds.
These new Earpods cost $29.00 on their own.
