QR or Quick Response codes were initially developed to be used in the automobile industry. Gradually, their extensive usage made them very much popular all over. Now, they are used in almost every such domain where the users are looking for detailed information on any kind of tangible item. One can easily go through the detailed information of a particular product by merely scanning this QR code.
What’s more, you can even use QR codes for sharing the simplest of information from your phone like contact details. For those who use Windows Phone, exchanging contacts can be a problem since the phone doesn’t offer a simple way to share it. However, to make the same task easier, there are many apps that perform similar function.
Seeing this trend, now an app for Windows Phone 7 has been developed that helps you share your contact information via QR code. The app name is My ContacTile. This app lets you pin a QR code to the start screen along with your contact information. This makes sharing of the information easier and simpler.
What’s more, you would not require launching My ContacTile. All you need to do is go to the home screen and ensure that the tile is in view. The other user can then scan the code using Bing vision or any other QR reader app and share the information successfully. The best part is that the user’s phone needs not to be a Windows Phone only and hence, sharing information becomes so much easier.
Even if there is a problem while scanning, mere tapping the tile and the app will help showing the code in a full screen mode.
You can download the app from Windows 7 Marketplace.
