Business cards are so outdated, right? Hardly friendly to the environment, easy to misplace, and oddly awkward to distribute at busy events - a new solution is needed. One such possibility is Atmospheir, an app that's essentially a digital business card but so much more powerful. It's going to be very useful at various social occasions, assuming everyone makes the wise move of downloading the app.
Taking a few moments to sign up to either via Facebook or a manual process, the app gets straight into its main purpose. It's essentially somewhere to round up all of one's personal and professional information.
Conventional information such as phone numbers, email addresses, mailing addresses, and birthdays can be entered here, but so can a plethora of social networking details. Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and LinkedIn are all covered, but that's not all. Alongside it one can add Pinterest, Vimeo, Soundcloud, Tumblr, Foursquare, Vine, KiK, and many other accounts. It makes Atmospheir a portal for so much information about one person, if they so wish it.
Atmospheir's big selling point is that it's easy to divide up what's shown to who. Setting up separate personal and professional profiles is a breeze, making it easy to allocate connections to specific parts of one's life without any worry of them learning something they shouldn't.
Connections are well thought out too, with introductions from other users possible, giving one a clue as to how they're connected to the new person. It's possible to find someone through the Bluetooth connectivity too, proving ideal in big social occasions and also being much faster than exchanging business cards.
Of course, much of Atmospheir will depend on how widespread it's used, but it clearly deserves to be. Well planned out and easy to use, it's much simpler than going the conventional route of exchanging information, and so much more flexible. For the regular business networker, this should be well worth considering.
