- “Which of the cards for that deck do I own and which do I still need?”
Most magic players tend to gather a bunch of cards. Finding the right piece in a collection can be tedious.
- “Yes, I own that card but I don’t have it with me.”
Even among friends it’s hard to know which cards another person is looking for.
“I enjoy this kind of Magic-related content but I don’t care for the rest.”
When looking for magic content a player will certainly be shown some things he/she doesn’t need. Have you ever seen a legacy player read about standard metagames?
- Snapcardster allows you to scan your magic cards and recognize them with your smartphone camera and categorize them easily. This way you’ll always know which cards you own.
- With Snapcardster you can see your friends’ wants and haves so you’re able to set up trades from everywhere.
- Snapcardster provides you with different kinds of magic content – perfectly adjusted to your interests to only inform you about topics in your personal timeline that you care about
- fast and accurate card scanner
- interactive magic timeline. Follow, like and share your favorite #mtg stories.
- easy to use interface for both consumers, producers and stores
- Stay informed and ahead of the market by daily (weekly, monthly) price updates via push notifications. Never miss a spike again!
- Submitting labeled cards to Snapcardster will not only support the quality of the scanning algorithm but also rewards you with Snapcoins™ to save money while trading or purchasing new in-app premium features with ease.

Support the development
We need your help. Building a precise and fast scanner for magic cards needs a lot of time, energy and especially lots of images to teach the machine learning.
Help us by submitting correctly labeled cards to improve the upcoming scanning technology. Download the image collector tool for android at Google Play Store. (This is not the full version of Snapcardster)
After many years of collecting and playing cards actively on tournaments he realized that the greatest card game in history finally deserves a suitable smartphone app. The idea of Snapcardster was born.

Spread the Word
Software development (and playing magic) is time-consuming and expensive. For the future we'd like to be able to pay for food, play Magic and offer long term support for Snapcardster.
We need your help to turn this campaign into a success! We greatly appreciate all your support on Kickstarter, Facebook, Twitter or by submitting cards. Tell your magic friends, family, local games store and colleagues about us!

Risks and challenges
Our team consists of enthusiastic developers and magic aficionados. Similar to every software project we face the same challenges like technical issues, time issues and lack of resources.
We have a lot of experience in building android applications but haven't done anything on iOS devices, which could be a potential challenge.
Nevertheless software development is time-consuming and expensive.
With your help we'll do our best to bring our prototypes and final product to iOS.
