LinkedIn’s business card scanning application, CardMunch, is closing its proverbial doors this July. If you are one of those users who used the application to get business cards added to your contact list, have no fear—the free ScanBizCards app can do it all, and much more.

The plan for LinkedIn is to have all users scan their cards into Evernote, a service that is better known for storing photos, website clippings and project notes. Don’t get me wrong, Evernote is a great service for holding project documents, but as a contact management service? Not really.

CardMunch users can send their contact file (click here to fill out LinkedIn’s form requesting your data file) to ScanBizCards, whereupon their contact list will be ported into the ScanBizCards app for free.

Take a look at the chart below to see how the apps stack up against one another.

As you can see, the free ScanBizCards app is far superior to the CardMunch app and what Evernote will be able to provide you. So what are you waiting for?
