<p>It will be a while before our phones completely replace our wallets. But there are plenty of apps available now that claim to replace (and improve) some function of your wallet. Which ones do you really want to use?
</p><p>
Thankfully, CNET's Sharon Vaknin recently <a href="http://howto.cnet.com/8301-11310_39-57376917-285/three-ways-your-smartphone-can-lighten-up-a-heavy-wallet/">tackled this topic</a> for us. Here's what she found.
</p><p>
One hurdle to having your Android device replace your wallet is carrying business cards -- not just your own business cards for handing out, but also the business cards you collect from others. <a href="http://download.cnet.com/CamCard-Lite-Business-Card-R/3000-2064_4-75612921.html">CamCard Lite</a>, a free Android app, will take a photo of business cards you collect and enter the contact info from that card into your address book. 
</p><p>
Be sure to take the photo with adequate lighting so the app can read the information on the card. There are also guides in the app, so be sure to line up the edges of the card with those guides to get a good shot. 
</p><p>
After taking a photo of a card, the app begins transcribing the card. After a few seconds, you will be asked to verify that the information pulled from the card is correct. If something's been lost in translation, you can correct it and save it to a contact list in the app, or to a contact list belonging to another account on your device.
</p><p>
As for your business card, you can store a photo of it in the app, which you can then let someone scan with their smartphone if they have a similar app.</p>

As our smartphones continue to gain capabilities, the fantasy of our wallets being replaced by them is becoming more realistic.
