NewSoft Announces New Versions of Presto! BizCard for iPhone and Android

Patented finger-tick dialing technology, advanced contact management among new features


Fremont, CA – January 17, 2012 – NewSoft, a leading provider of productivity-enhancing software, today announced Presto! BizCard 2.0 for iPhone and Presto! BizCard 2.0 for Android, two powerful new mobile phone applications that enable easy and efficient image capture with business card contact management.


“With mobile phone use exploding – particularly iOS and Android-based phones– business and consumer users expect more functionality from their smart phones,” says Johnson Yang, general manager of NewSoft America.  “The Presto! BizCard family significantly expands the utility of smart phones with powerful, all-in-one business card management solutions.”


Powerful Business Card Management
Presto! BizCard 2.0 allows users to quickly and easily scan and add business cards directly into iPhone or Android phones using advanced OCR technology and steady mode for the most accurate image capture.  Once business card information is captured by taking a picture of the card, or a card is selected from the phone library, BizCard 2.0 then stores the business card on the smart phone, where the information can be efficiently managed by:
 • Exporting contact information directly to Google Contacts and Salesforce;
 • Automatically rotating business card image formats, which are supported in JPG, PNG and BMP file formats;
 • Magnifying selected image fields for easy verification; and
 • Quickly retrieving business cards by swiping the image or via Smart Search


Information at Your Fingertips with Finger-Tick Dialing
With Presto! BizCard 2.0’s patented Finger-Tick Dialing technology, making a phone call, sending regular or vCard email or SMS in both plain text and image formats, opening URLs or pinpointing an address on a map are as easy as touching and holding different parts of the appropriate image.


Once the business card information is captured, OCR applies and distributes the correct data in the correct fields.  The business card is then used as an index, enabling a user to simply finger touch and hold on the business card image for 1.5 seconds to initiate the Finger-tick dialing. By sliding a finger across the business card image, the correct information is displayed directly on top of each of the field’s text information that the finger touched.  This information can then be clicked to enable direct calling or texting.
