Should have started doing this much earlier but for some reason it never bothered me not to. But today I decided to systematically scan and throw away the business cards I receive. Travelling here and there with limited space to store things taught me how to live ‘light’ and use technology to get rid of ‘physical’ things.
My ‘Yolu Card Reader’ app is know part of the apps I use to be less dependent on physical material and the risk of losing it. I take a picture of the business card and the app automatically recognizes all the details (name, email, mobile, address, etc.) and stores it automatically as a contact within the app. If you want you can directly copy that contact to your phone contacts. Great tool!
I chose this app after testing out a couple of them. I used this article to have an overview of what the best ones are out there!
