'App Pick of the Week:' CardMunch automatically uploads business cards to phone

Staying connected to people can impact whether you make a new friend or even get a job offer.

Having business cards though, often means it's shoved into a wallet or a purse.

Our 'WSLS App Pick of the Week,' helps eliminate loosing important contact information.

'CardMunch' let's you snap a photo of a business card with your smart phone and have it automatically uploaded into your contacts. It's convenient and saves you time.

The neat thing about CardMunch is the accuracy. It takes a few minutes to get the contact information from the business card to upload into your phone, but that's because CardMunch actually has real people inputting the data.

We tried a few other apps and the numbers and e-mail addresses didn't show up correctly.

CardMunch also let's you connect with the popular, professional network, Linkedin.

There's also an arrow where you can select to forward the contact information or save it to your phone.

Now, the next time you call someone for business, you won't have to search for their card, you can use CardMunch.
