Evernote is a great tool to keep all of your stuff organized; photos, voice notes, and webclips. Evernote recently launched The Trunk, an app store for its users. Evernote Trunk features add-ons and apps for both your mobile and desktop computer.
One such app is the Business Card Manager. The app lets you take pictures of business cards and then use the image as a reference when filling out the contact information fields. That contact information can be sent into the iPhone Address Book. You can email, call, and even access a user’s social median pages directly from the app. One of its best features of the app is that you can link it to your Evernote account.
Business Card Manager links with your Evernote account, so that you can send your business card photos into Evernote for safekeeping. You can set Business Card Manager to sync with a particular Evernote notebook, so if you have a “Contacts” or “Business cards” notebook, everything can go straight there.
Four main features of Business Card Manager
1. Add new cards by taking a photo on your iPhone Camera.
Add new business cards by taking a photo of the card with your iPhone. You can also take a picture of all of your cards at once and sort all of the cards later. This way you don’t have to enter each card one at a time.
2. A Seamless Search Function interlinked with Evernote.
Evernote usuers can auto-sync their data with a specific notebook. Evernote will use its OCR (Optical Character Recognition) feature to scan and recognize the text inside the image.
3. Use “Tags” to Manage Groups Easily.
Tag your business cards with a group name so help you mange them.
4. Exchange business cards from iPhone to iPhone
Two iPhone users with the app can exchange their business cars by holding their phones close together.

The Business Card Manger has several advantages over just using Evernote by itself. You can access the contact’s social media pages directly from the app, you can send the contact information to your phone’s contact list, and you take a photo of more than 1 business card at a time. The ability to sync with Evernote means that your data is accessible from any computer and backed up to the cloud.
