Abstract

We present a cross platform mobile application that facilitates the distribution of personal and professional contact (i.e., business card) information. This application allows users to enter any contact handle (e.g., phone, e-mail, or Facebook). In addition to all of an individual's contact information being in one convenient place, users can also distribute their information to other users easily via a high performance user interface. Furthermore, users will have the ability to make multiple versions of their business card. For example, a user's social media accounts can be put into a personal card that can be distributed to friends and family. Similarly, more business oriented forms of communication can also be placed into a professional or business card and sent to potential clients. This application helps to mitigate information exchange issues such as: complex contact data transfer between individuals, outdated contact information, and non-standardized ways to present contact information. In addition to expediting the process of exchanging contact information with personal or professional individuals, this application also allows the aforementioned cards to updated dynamically as well as distributed readily to the various accounts (e.g., e-mail, social media) of different people. This project is currently in development and facilitates the transfer of contact information via Bluetooth connectivity. This instance of the project is only being developed for the android mobile operating system at this time as development for iOS requires the use of fee-based licenses and related tools. Looking forward, our development plans include the implementation of more efficient methods to transfer data as well as development for the Apple iOS.
