Business Cards Info is an iPhone app developed by Investor Guide Est. Information Technology. BCI will help you to save and organize all of the business cards you need electronically.

Business Cards Info attempts to do what so many other iPhone apps have tried to do before: make a cluttered wallet or Rolodex filled with business cards a thing of the past. In addition, users can introduce themselves and their businesses to the world by posting a card of their own online where others can see it.

On top of all this, Business Cards Info (BCI) further facilitates the process of finding the card you need with a robust search function, augmented by an interactive map to help you visualize the locations of your business contacts.

Under card details, you can list a whole ton of information, from a person’s name and contact info to their company name and business sector. While it is nice that you can upload a person’s photo, it’s very sad that there’s no section for personalized notes.

It would be good if you could take notes about where you meet a certain contact, or jot down any secret intel about their likes and dislikes to use for when you meet with them and need to strike up a conversation.

The interface for Business Cards Info feels a bit clunky. It’s serviceable enough, but still a bit unwieldy. I wish there was a way to take a picture of your card, and have the camera recognize and import the text into the proper place. And as a business app, not being able to import contacts from LinkedIn seems like a bit of a missed opportunity.

Still, if you need a better way to organize your business cards (particularly after a long conference where you made a ton of new contacts), Business Cards Info could be just the thing you’re looking for…especially given the price tag.

Business Cards Info is compatible with iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, iPod touch (3rd generation), iPod touch (4th generation), iPod touch (5th generation) and iPad. Requires iOS 4.3 or later. This app is optimized for iPhone 5.

These data exchange apps are very cool – but can they really be a successful substitute for the staying power of a high quality business card? Attractive business cards get passed around, several times even. They stay on desks, and in pockets – and serve as reminders when they surface again. Digital data can be downloaded, and never seen again. PrintingForLess has some pretty nice business card templates that make design easy, maybe check them out.
