Similar to the notification Centre we covered a while ago we have put together a new Business Card Reader Concept for Windows Phone , we want an applike this to offers an easy way to add a new contact to your phone: simply take a picture of a business card and save the contact. You can also keep the image of the business cards to easy visual navigation its your virtual Card holder.



So any devs out here want to take a stab at it ?

If you do a search on the marketplace you will find good ol' worldcard just like what was on wm6.5. Just cost $9.99 but there is one. I would doubt this kind of app would be made for free.

It's great people are stating alternatives here, but this is a good opportunity for developers to have a go at something.

As the OP mentioned:

"So any devs out here want to take a stab at it ?"

I am one of those developers who wants to have a go at this, purely from an educational point of view.

Nothing is totally free in this world however out of respect I would be happy to pay for an app provided it wasn't over the odds.

Personally I think anything developed on the XDA forums should remain open ended to allow people to learn and evolve the project.

Well a lot of business cards have QR Codes on them.

But I'm going to try and see what I can do about this.

-Sent from my HTC EVO 3D using the XDA App.

yup. I have placed a QR code on the backside of my business Card that includes a VCard with my Contact info. If you scan it, WP7 will automatically send you to the contacts hub and Display my contact - you can then save it

Whats in it for the Dev Who Suceeds? Free Nokia Lumia 800 on verizon when it appears? lol

For that I would devote all my time to making it happen lol, I dont program for profit hence why most of my apps are free, I program for the free devices.

Guys check out "My Contact Tile" in the market place. It creates a QR code on your contact information. Someone else with a wp7 can scan it and it will save it to the people hub. Love it!
