Pokémon TCG Card Dex

A new app has been announced. This Is the Pokémon TCG Card Dex, an app that lets fans keep track of their collection using the camera on devices to create scans of their cards. Even damaged and obscured cards can be scanned. It also provides a database for all Sun & Moon and beyond cards. It currently does not have any tracking of earlier cards. It is currently available in Sweden on iOS and Android and coming worldwide soon. The app supports English, Spanish, French, Italian, German, and Brazilian Portuguese languages.
Edit @ 11:25: On testing the app, it's worth noting that the reflective elements that come from sleeves that cards are in or folders cards are in does prevent the app from getting a good look at the card and means scanning will take longer

Until Next Time, See Ya
