    I have been using Canva for all my graphic needs. It seems that there are also other apps that I can use. Thanks for the share.

  2. Martin Lindeskog

    I have an About.me page. I will check out the other sites.

  3. Thanks for teaching me all about the options in digital business cards. I am using SnapDat because it is free and works well with Apple iPhones. Next, I will try your suggestion of CamCard because of its extensive language capabilities. Today’s business world is global.

  4. Switchit is a great digital business card app as well. It supports video, audio, graphics, your contact info and social media accounts. Great contact management system, popular integrations and more. switchitapp.com

  5. I have been using vCard Global now for a couple of months and it works well with all types of phones. I would like the Business card scanner that Haystack offers. Does anyone use multiple digital cards?

  6. Hi

    I just came across the term Mobile Business Cards – I am new to all this. Where I find more information on what is Mobile Business Card; how does it help a small business in lead generation; more sales etc; its features so on.

    Thanks

    • Hi Ragini,

      With GotKard, everytime I share a business card with someone I also get to save their email which allow me to follow up with them proactively. I use the emails to send a news letter to keep them informed about updates on the industry I work and my services as well.

    • Hi Ragini,

      you may connect with me on pra***** @ajartech.in for more details.

      regards

  7. The free Scannable app (iPhone only, I think) provides great business card scanning with OCR recognition and saves the results into iPhones contact list. This is not a business card app, but an excellent scanner app 🙂

  8. i am using Linkcards in place of paper business cards. currently available on play store for android. awesome app.

  9. I use the Shuffle app by Elify. I find this to be the best I’ve seen out there when it comes to virtual business cards. You get a 14 day free trial with no limitations. After the free trial, it is just $10/month, which is so worth the value you receive! We are able to create up to 10 unique cards, which does not include the ready made templates about the cards or their affiliate program. We can add videos, images. They have a built in contact manager with a follow-up reminder system. These cards have it all!

  10. I have been using GotKard for a while now and I think its one of the best in the market for quality and available functionality.

  11. I’m sold on Elify Shuffle – I tried 3 different companies and found Elify superior in function, support and cost.

  12. I’ve been working on a project called Acquainted (www.acquainted.io) that tackles exactly this issue in a very new and innovative way. Most business card apps focus on scanning physical business cards. I think that’s a process that does not scale in any way and that will always have horrible UX. Acquainted focuses on creating directly digital business cards that can be seamlessly shared cross-platform and even with people that don’t have the app. It’s quite a new approach so feel free to check it out and tell us what you think.

  13. Michelle, which one did you decide to use?

    I’ve recently discovered HiHello – an app that lets you create and share your personalized, digital cards with others so easily. You can create many different cards – one for each context that you are interacting with others. For instance, I have a business card, personal card, and an events one.

    So now I can now share my business-related information (work email, LinkedIn profile, etc) to those I meet in a business setting – they don’t even need the app to receive your card/contact details!

    You can also scan the business cards you already have right into your contacts and this service is human-verified – so you know it’s always accurate.

    It’s a great app and I highly recommend.

  16. Try a new entrant to this space: https://hihello.me

    HiHello has Digital Business card where you can create multiple cards and choose what information you would like to put on each card so that you can give the right information tot he right people. You can share your card with anyone — they do not need to have an app to receive your card. And you can also scan any paper business cards you may receive.

  17. Thanks Antony for this amazing post. All the tools you have mentioned are very good, but recently heard about a new technique. I used “mobilo” to make my card, its very unique. You can share your contact details by tapping your phone on a card. I know its sounds interesting. It makes sharing easy and fast.
