    It would not make sense to create an app like that with Unity. Unity is a game engine, and has significant overhead in its built apps, is more difficult to build UI with than other tool sets, and requires more effort to access the native APIs you'd need to use.

    Check out something like PhoneGap, Cordova, Ionic, or Xamarin.

    The app that I am building is an AR(Augmented Reality) app so I am using Unity and Vuforia, but I need to capture some information from the name card at the same time in the same app. Any solution?

    I might recommend a Google search for "text recognition Vuforia"

    You'd have to ask Vuforia. It's their SDK.
