Back in August, we brought you news on the new FullContact app, letting you snap a photo of a business card with humans adding the details to your iPhone contacts. And now, it’s available on Android too.

Born out of TechStars in 2011, FullContact offers a suite of tools that tap publicly-accessible data to auto-magically complete the missing information in your contacts list. It’s all about eliminating duplicate, partial, and out-of-date records.

There are, of course, many card reader apps on the market already, but most of these rely on OCR technology. FullContact also integrates directly with Salesforce, and lets you export the scanned cards to your device’s address book.
