The about.me website is a service that most people are a member of but don’t use anywhere near as much as back when it first launched. About.me has always been a digital business card of sorts, a convenient place to list basic work experience and links to a user’s different social media accounts. The new Intro by about.me app aims to embrace that usage by offering users the ability to share and view about.me profiles on either Windows Phone or Windows devices.
The app allows users to control the specific information they share, send the info to an email address, phone number or about.me account, keep a history of about.me cards both sent and received, communicate with contacts either through the app directly or by adding their information to the device’s address book and of course, view a user’s entire about.me profile page.
The app could be a great backup for people who leave their business cards at home before heading out to a party or conference and is a lot more professional than the common, “Just find me on Twitter” method of exchanging details. The app is also completely free so there are very few reasons not to check it out.
