Concept – Business Card Reader Windows Phone – Calling For Devs

The Windows Phone platform is getting bigger and more solid with the latest 7.5 update, but the market just isn’t as big as other platform’s markets yet.

Our dear XDA friend and chief editor of 1800PocketPC the0ne is calling out to developers to join a project to create a business card reader app for Windows Phone devices.  The idea is a simple app that can scan a business card and add it to your contact list, also giving easy access to the original scan for visual reference.

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 – it’s your virtual Card holder.

If you are a developer and think you can help, continue on to the development thread.
