Eyejot launched a new version of its video business card iPhone app for SXSW. The app lets users create and send digital business cards, and send them via email with a QR code to the sender’s contact info along with a link to a Google map of where the contact was made.
“It’s one thing to tell someone where you met them. It’s an entirely different matter to actually show them,” the company says on its app page. “So, the Eyejot vCard SXSW Edition app remembers where you were when you sent your vCard and sends it along with your video.”
The iTunes description says:
Designed expressly for SXSW attendees in Austin, the Eyejot vCard SXSW Edition makes sharing personal contact information fast, fun and, best of all, memorable. Forget old-fashioned business cards. With Eyejot’s vCard SXSW Edition you’ll be able to share your contact information and introductory video with everyone you meet at SXSW.
With lanyard mode turned on your iPhone or iPod Touch doubles as a cool name badge you can wear suspended from your neck with a lanyard-equipped case. Flip your device around and your ready to send a new Eyejot vCard. To get the best use of lanyard mode be sure to turn off your device’s lock screen while you’re using it (and turn it back on after your event).
“We all go to events and need to share valuable contact information, and with Eyejot vCard, iPhone users can stay better organized and deliver more personable and memorable impressions,” says Eyejot President David Geller. “Our special vCard application will give SXSW attendees a chance to put Eyejot vCard through its paces and exchange contact information more quickly, easily and memorably than ever before.”
