A terrific app for giving out business cards.

Every performer with an Iphone should have this.

Get it now!

Well done Damian.

Great app guys! I have a couple suggestions that I think would make it even better.

1.) Add a feature so that you can import Business Card photos from the Camera Roll.
I have a scanned photo of my business card that looks much better that the one I took from within the app. Having the ability the import it from the Camera Roll would be great.

2.) Add a feature so that you can save multiple business cards and select the one you need depending on the situation.
Some people (including myself) have multiple cards for different types of work that they do. Currently you are limited to using just one card and if you decide to change it you would have to retake a photo and then crop and enhance it each time. Having the ability to save multiple photos and the select the one you need would would give the user a lot more flexibility.

I really like this app. Although it's geared towards producing your business card, I see a lot of potential for other possibilities. For example, you could also magically produce a credit card or a driver's license. The only problem with I see with that right now, and it's a minor one, is that those types of cards have rounded corners and the app is designed for cards with sharp corners. Perhaps something else to consider for a future update?

Anyway, nice job with the app guys and I really hope you consider incorporating some of my suggestions.


I really like this App and would also agree the most important update
for me would be Item number 1

(Number 2 would also be cool as well)

Thanks for the comments everyone!

Stay tuned for the update coming soon, and the pro version of the app. Both are being tested now.

Hi Everyone,

The update for Card Now was released at the Blackpool convention last weekend. The new version has:

* Peel back screen
Quick access to change both the production method, and the card you are using (Pro only), in seconds!

* Card Now icon can now be anywhere on the home screen

* Deactivated 'double click' around the icon area
Dut to a couple of accidental double clicks (which displayed the set up screen) during performance, we have deactivated the double click on and around the Card Now icon.

* Layout improvements

* Changes to the Demo mode
To reflect the above changes in the initial walk through.

There's also now an option to upgrade to a 'Pro' version of the app.


The Pro version includes:

* Ability to have multiple cards to be stored in the app.
Allowing you to switch between one card and another very quickly. Even quicker if you use the Peel back screen too!

* Ability to add an image from your camera roll
Meaning that you can add artwork from your computer files.

Enjoy Smile

Hello,

It's a really well made app and I've used it a lot, but now I have an issue

You need to have the app icon on the "home screen screenshot" and if it isn't there the app isn't working.

My phone is jailbroken and I m using a winterboard theme were the icons aren't squares but circles, and so the app doesn't recognize the round icon.

I'm understanding that having the app icon is also important for commercial purpose, but I think that maybe in the pro version (the one I use) this safety feature could be tunded off.

Thanks

Hi Er1tro,

I have never used a jail broken iPhone, so I do not know about different themes etc.

The idea is that the 'fake home screen' looks like a real home screen. Real home screens look like apple intended.

If you take a screen shot of your home screen when a standard theme is in place, then the app will work just fine. You could still have your 'round icons' for your own use of your phone, but when you use Card Now it will look like a standard iPhone again. Win win! Smile

Hope that helps.
Cheers
Damian

Card Now for Android ?

Hi all,
Please click the link below if you would be interested in Card Now being available on Android.

I need to work out how much to invest into converting the app. The calculation will be simple. If the number of people who show interest mean that I'll make a profit in a reasonable time frame, I'm going to get it produced as quickly as I can. If the number of people who show interest is much lower than that, it will go back onto my "Maybe, one day" list.

Here's the link:

Thanks

I'm sorry to report that Card Now is unlikely to be made for Android in the near future.

I posted the link yesterday in all of the places I posted the Card Now for iPhone link when that was released. The iPhone app went to number 5 in it's section in the app store within 48 hours! I'll not say how many sales that was, but it was good Smile

The result of asking the same networks if I should invest my money and time in an android version has only resulted in about 30 responses. 20 of those said they would definitely buy the app. The rest said that they would 'probably buy it if the price is right'.

To put this in perspective, I would have wanted at least 10x the response to feel it would definitely bring me a profit within a reasonable time frame.
Unless the numbers go mad in the next 24 hours, I think I'll be sticking to iPhone apps.

Sorry if this is bad news to some of you.
Cheers,
Damian

Damian - Just wanted to let you know that I am using Card Now with GREAT effect! Among other events, I give iPad and iPhone seminars to large groups (I wrote the e-book, "The iPad Lawyer: Real Secrets for Your iPad Success"). Before and after the events, I hand out cards . . . and you can only guess at the reaction this is getting. Thanks for a terrific tool for help in creating a memorable impression! - Scott Grossberg

Damian,

I just purchased this app and bought the pro version too.

This is TOO Cool!!!

I just updated my business card so it is perfect timing to use this app.

FYI: Here is a great utility program that I use to transfers images from pc/mac to the camera roll:

Very nice job!!!

And thanks for the image transfer tip. I have been emailing images to myself and adding them from there.

Thanks again,
