LinkedIn closes down CardMunch card scanning app, integrates Evernote
LinkedIn and Evernote have announced that the companies will deepen their integration in light of CardMunch being shut down. A card scanning app owned by LinkedIn, the app will be officially shut down on July 14, with users being migrated over to Evernote. Evernote's new iOS apps facilitate business card scanning, though over time it will become a premium feature. Existing CardMunch users will receive free business card scanning for two years, and Evernote users not on CardMunch can get one year free of business card scanning if they connect their LinkedIn and Evernote accounts.
