        This was working before the lates update. Picture of business ca3d would load along with contacts info to transfer to Outlook. Wtf happened??!!

        The business card import does not work and there is no validation step before saving as a contact or to OneNote. There should be end user validation step on the data before saving a contact or the note. Evernote has nailed the user experience for this.

        This is so badly needed. Saving to OneNote is not why we want this we need this saved to our contacts in our phones and also outlook. C’mon!

        And with the possibility to export as CSV file (very important for professionals)

        The business card scan feature is extremely poor: no integration with contacts, no integration with linkedin, every step is manual. Iphone app is worse than the Android app.
        Idea : just look at Evernote and copy what they ve done

        I agree with all the comments here I spent a lot of time trying to figure out just how to get a business card scan into my contacts.

        Useless without the possibility to save or email buisniss card as a contact.
        Just a waist of time as it is now.

        When it took my business card picture that seemed like the next obvious step to me. Otherwise, what's the point? Even if it weren't OCRd into data, it would be nice to attach the image right into my contact.

        This sucks. The only reason I downloaded this and outlook for iOS. Going to delete it

        This is definitely needed. It can be done if you put the card to OneNote first, but it shouldn't require OneNote.
