Scanning Business Cards using Photobooth on the Mac (or iPad) - Productive! Show #45

When you're at a conference you are exchanging lots of business cards with people very often. I know I do. That's why it's really important to process these cards really quickly and add them to your system. I use Photobooth and Evernote on my Mac and iPad. How do you do it?

One question: when I scan the cards, Evernote is able to search. But is there a chance to get phone number/email as a text and finally as a link to dial from my iPhone or to send a mail? Rewriting of the contact detail when you need it is kind of unproductive.

I scan business cards just because I want to "archive" them and most of the time I don't need the information from them... until I need it. But I've been recommended a service like Cardmunch for that purpose (recently acquired by Linkedin).

This is so great and simple. I can start on organizing my paperwork today rather than having to run out and get a scanner. Thanks so much.
