What's New in Version 8.20.6The wait is over! To make the app faster, smarter, and even more reliable, we have rebuilt the engine and put some more horsepower under the hood. We’ve also added some amazing features that will blow your mind away:
+ AUTOMATIC NORMALIZATION OF PHONE NUMBERS. No matter how a phone number appears on a business card, ABBYY BCR will automatically put in all the missing parts, so that you can reach the contact even if the country code was omitted in print. For instance, (495) 123_4)5*67 will be changed to +7 495 123 45 67.
We have also taught the app to recognize extension numbers, so you won’t need to memorize them or jot them down. When you call a contact, the app will dial their company number, and when you are prompted for an extension, simply tap the number displayed in the bottom left corner of the Phone app.
+ AUTOCOMPLETION OF ADDRESSES. BCR will correct any typos and fill in the missing address fields (e.g. postcode, ZIP code, or county) so you can easily find it on the map.
+ APPLE WATCH. Now you won’t need to reach for your iPhone to remember somebody’s name and make a call. View contacts and make phone calls using your Apple Watch!
+ BCR CONTACTS SYNCED WITH IPHONE ADDRESS BOOK. If you choose to save contacts both to BCR and to your iPhone’s address book, they will always be in sync. Any edits you make in BCR will be automatically reflected in your iPhone’s contacts, and vice versa. Managing contacts has never been easier!
+ SPOTLIGHT SEARCH. Find business cards stored in BCR using the Spotlight search feature on the iPhone main screen (swipe down to open Spotlight). You can search by any of the items captured from business cards, just like you do when working with iPhone contacts.
+ AUTOMATIC BACKUPS. Your contacts will be regularly backed up for you to make your valuable data 100% restorable.
+ EASILY SEND YOUR BUSINESS CARD TO A NEW CONTACT. This feature can be accessed via the Share button when you open a business card for viewing. The letter templates have also been improved.
We have also created a beautiful BCR landing page at www.abbyybcr.com, so if someone asks you where they can grab themself a cool business card scanner, just give them the address.
So why wait? Upgrade the app and tell us what you think! We would be grateful for your feedback and five-start reviews in the App Store.
