How to automatically add business cards to address books

Recently, a few of you have been asking about uploading business cards to Contactzilla. We know what it’s like. I get handed dozens of business cards every week and if I’m not careful, I’ve lost half of them within what feels like minutes.

I’ve just discovered Evernote’s business card scanner and it’s perfect for adding your business cards to your Contactzilla address books.

The business card scanner is available to Evernote Premium users as part of Evernote’s iPhone and iPad app.

It’s so simple to use. All you need to do is take a photo of your business card with Evernote’s business card camera.

Firstly, make sure your Evernote business card settings are set to automatically save business cards to your phone contacts.

1. In “Settings” select “General”
