How do I synchronize my business cards?

The synchronization feature is available in both iOS and Android versions of the application. It allows you to synchronize the recognized business cards on any iOS and Android devices where the application is installed. Synchronization is carried out via the ABBYY Cloud service.

To enable synchronization, please do the following:

  • Launch ABBYY BCR on first mobile device;
  • Tap Settings;
  • Select Synchronization > ABBYY Cloud and register using a valid e-mail address;
  • Once you log in, two new items will be added to the synchronization menu:
  1. The Enable menu disables or enables synchronization on the current device. If you disable synchronization on a device, any business cards that you process on that device will not be available on your other iOS or Android devices.
  2. The Via cellular (By mobile network) menu enables or disables synchronization via your cell-phone network. If this option is disabled, business cards will only be synchronized over Wi-Fi. If this option is enabled, business cards will be synchronized both over Wi-Fi and over your cell-phone network, which may entail additional data transfer costs.
  • Enable synchronization;
  • Launch ABBYY BCR on another mobile device;
  • Tap Settings > Synchronization > ABBYY Cloud and log in with the e-mail address and password that were used on first mobile device;
  • Enable synchronization.

Please note, if synchronization is enabled, deleting card from the application also automatically delete it from cloud storage.

Note: Desktop application ABBYY Business Card Reader for Windows does not have the synchronization feature.
