Hi, I'm looking for an app for Samsung S2/S3 which will scan a business card and save the details onto the phone - I believe there's an app available for iPhone - is the equivalent available for Samsung smartphones?  Thanks.

Sounds like what you want is an OCR reader for images taken with camera phone. Or image to text. I am not aware of an actual app, but google has a couple of things on the go;

a webAPI

and google goggles, which may be what you need

If the above doesn't work, in the google play store try Business Card Reader, or CamCard
