Remember the Palm Pilot? With a few taps, you could beam your business card from your Palm to someone else’s. Beautiful. Though Palm is long gone, there are plenty of tools for entering business card info into your contact database, and CardMunch is probably the easiest. Take a photo of the business card with your iPhone or iPad, upload it, and before you know it, the card has been transcribed (by humans, supposedly) and downloaded back to CardMunch. From there, you can add the info to your iPhone contacts, email the person, or connect with them on LinkedIn. Speaking of LinkedIn, the social network for professionals now owns CardMunch.
