LinkedIn relaunches iPhone App to convert business cards to LinkedIn contacts.

Smartphones are good for many things, especially for personal information management. If you deal with business cards a lot, you probably discovered specialized apps that let you scan any business card to effortlessly create a contact entry in your iPhone.

LinkedIn, the facebook for business people, today announced a re-launch of its free iPhone app titled CardMunch. As a result, their old app will no longer be supported.

The newly launched CardMunch program can digitize printed business cards and turn them into a digital representation, just like similar offerings on the App Store. Unlike other programs, CardMunch automatically links scanned cards to LinkedIn profiles:

By using the new CardMunch app, you now have access to deeper and richer information about the person behind the card — via the LinkedIn profile — who you know in common, where they’ve worked, where they went to school, and much, much more!

If you haven’t already then now is the time to download a copy, after all it’s free.

* Convert business cards to address book contacts, and then add them as connections on LinkedIn.
* View relevant LinkedIn profile info, connections in common, work history, and more, for the cards you scan.
* Improved card capture experience for faster and easier card scanning.
* Manual transcription ensures high accuracy for scanned cards.
* Newly revamped user interface and visual experience
