Expo: We-Envision introduces myCard for iPhone, iPods touch
We-Envision thinks you want to get your name out there. The company announced myCard, an iPhone and iPod Touch application that beams your business card information to others using any available Internet connection, at this week’s Macworld Expo.
A Beam myCard feature lets you send your info from your iPhone or touch to another iPhone or touch with myCard installed, over the Internet. You provide a short code for the other person to enter, and your card info appears in seconds. If your recipient doesn’t own myCard—or an iPhone, for that matter—the Email myCard feature lets you send your information as an industry-standard vCard e-mail attachment. myCard also remembers the last card you sent, making it quick and easy to send your card again, without retyping.
You can select which parts of your card to beam with a simple tap, omitting personal information such as your mobile phone number or notes that you don't want shared, as well as choose your own "skin" to personalize the application.
myCard is available for free during Macworld Expo 2009 [App Store link]. After this week, the app will cost $1. The company plans to release a free receiver-only app as well.
