Share your business card nearby
Ever since Google announced the new Nearby technology, we have been itching to try it out. We even did a talk about it. If you haven't heard about it, it's a simple way of finding other mobile phones near yours, and sharing information with them, across Android and iOS. It uses a mix of technologies to achieve that, like WiFi, Bluetooth and even sound.
So we came up with the concept for Card Case, an app to simplify contacts exchange. You just need to be nearby, with the app. No need to create any account, ask for an username or send an email. By pressing the exchange button, business cards are shared between 2 or more people nearby.
The application was released in May 2016. We used playful illustrations and animations to guide the user through the features.
And it got some press coverage:
- Card Case Shares Contact Details With Those Around You Using The Nearby API
- App van de week: Card Case vervangt papieren visitekaartjes (AndroidWorld)
So far it gathered 6K installs, with a 4.3 star rating on the Google Play Store.
