A huge hassle of the business world is business cards. You have to buy them, which is expensive. You have to store them, which is a pain in the butt. And you always have to make sure you’re carrying them around. But they’re still an important factor! Business cards give you the ability to enlist a potential customer quickly and easily. All you have to do is hand them your card. So how can you get the best of both worlds? How about sending your contact info electronically? DUB is a new app for BlackBerry that can send your Contact info to another phone with the click of a button.
DUB, by DubMeNow, is a pretty helpful application. When you first start the app, you’ll be prompted to enter all your contact info like: name, different phone numbers, email, social networking pages, instant messenger name, and more, as well as a picture. The app will then permanently store that info for repeat use.
Now, every time you find yourself in a situation where you would normally hand out a business card, you can send all that stored info electronically instead! To send your contact info, just hit the ‘Locate’ button and the app will do all the work. First, the app will locate the device you’re trying to share with. Once it does, it will send all that info and it will take all the contact info from the other person.
The app can send and receive info from BlackBerrys, iPhones, and Androids. But here’s the catch, both phones must have the DUB app on them. So if you really want to use this app to its full potential, you better tell anyone you know and will meet in the future to download DUB.
All in all, this is a well polished, well constructed app. The only major problem is its practicality. Given, the app is completely free. But chances are the majority of people you plan to exchange contact info with won’t have DUB downloaded. But you should still check this app out and decide for yourself!
