TechCrunch’s Disrupt conference in San Francisco has seen the introduction of some innovative new apps this week, like Tonara and Turntable.fm that were both mentioned in our blog. Another app to make an appearance at Disrupt is Cardflick, a contact sharing app that lets you create beautiful virtual business cards and “flick” them wirelessly to others.
This demo video shows how the app works:
If you want to share your Cardflick card with someone who doesn’t have the app, you can simply email it to that person. These emails include your contact information in Vcard format so that it can be easily imported into a device’s contact list.
Cardflick has been available for free in the App Store this week but will soon go back to its regular price of $.99. It’s gotten mixed reviews in the App Store so far, with many lamenting the app’s requirement for a Facebook account to log in and use the app. However, Cardflick has stated via Twitter that this requirement is going away and should be reflected in the next update of the app, which has already been submitted to the App store.
