Two weeks ago we launched App2Card.com, a service we built to help Mobile App developers build business cards for their apps. Our cards have the shape of a mobile app icons displaying the app icon on the front of the card. On the back we show a QR code that leads directly to the app store. That way we make sure people get to the right place and aren't lost searching for your app in the app store. The QR code is generated with a bit.ly address which give access to stats and can come handy when you want some measure on your promotion. Our service is really easy to use. If your app is an iOS app in the app store you simply have to search for it on app2card.com to get a preview of your cards. We also offer custom cards for mobile apps other than iOS since we received a lot of requests for custom cards after the launch. In custom mode developers can upload their own artwork and specify the url and text to appear on the back of the card. We think our cards are a great way to leave a good impression when promoting an app in conferences or meeting VCs. We are also working on some new features that will help iOS app distribution. If you're interested i'll let you know when its ready. If you have some time please drop us a line to tell us what you think of our service. We can also send you some samples if you would like. Thanks a lot for your time. Best regards

Now that we have moved into the digital world with mobiles and apps ruling the roost it might be time to move onto a design more suited to those mediums. App2Card is a new advertising app for mobiles and tablets that creates impressive and unique business cards for iOS developers.
The problem with business cards is that sometimes you feel as if they’re all the same. However, with App2Card, iOS developers can literally create something that really resembles their own iOS app. The business cards produced by the service look just like application icons and can be designed to look like any given developer’s iOS app. And on the back of these business cards is a QR code and a shortened URL that can lead potential customers straight to the App Store and right to your application’s page. In custom mode developers can upload their own artwork and specify the URL and text to appear on the back of the card. The QR code is generated with a bit.ly address which give access to stats and can come in very handy when you want some feedback figures on your promotion. If you’re an iOS...
