I'm currently testing your api for scanning business card information. To be honest I compare your api with the one from fullcontact.

What I don't like in fullcontact is that the card reading is done by human ...

Currently by using your sdk it failed to recognized almost all of my business card picture. I'm always using my phone to make the picture of the business card. Any recommendation on how I should take the picture ? Should the picture only show the card nothing in the background ?

Thank you Alex.

For business cards use the following photo tips.

Also make sure that you have set the proper recognition language.
