You come away from that convention, pockets full of cards. You photograph them all and submit. After some OCR processing – you are asked to approve (dont need to wait – just come back to the app the next day) … and wow – all ready to be saved to your local contacts / address book – and a single click to connect with them on LinkedIN. How good is that ?

CardMunch is free and comes from LinkedIN – where else – and probably should have been done by Plaxo years ago. Plaxo ? Really ? Are they still around ?

They are – no need to check – it is essentially the same app it was when it launched – just that it’s owned by Comcast these days.
