HomePage is an Ingenious New App That Uses QR Codes for Contact Sharing

November 24, 2020

If you’ve ever been to a conference, attended a meeting, or, well, met anybody ever, you’ll know that saving, sharing, and maintaining contacts is a messy process.

Do you look for the people you’ve just met on Facebook or LinkedIn? (Probably.) Do you come home from a four-day conference and diligently transpose the information from 923 business cards into your phone? (No.) Do you write down numbers on fast food receipts and then immediately lose them? (Er…)

Chances are, you do all of the above with varying degrees of success – but no more. HomePage is an ingenious new service that aims to banish contact confusion to the past.

HomePage takes the best of LinkedIn, Facebook, and your phone’s contact book and consolidates them in a single practical and intuitive platform.

Here’s how it works. Each user creates a dynamic contact entry called their MyCard. This can contain as much or as little information as you like, including phone numbers, social media handles, YouTube channels, and so on.

Then, HomePage generates a unique QR code for that MyCard. To share all of your information, all you need to do is let somebody scan your code and your MyCard will be added to their collection.

The beauty of this QR code-based approach is that you can easily pop your contact details onto promotional materials and stuff like that.

When you change a detail on your MyCard – adding a new phone number, say, or removing a website link that’s no longer relevant – all of your HomePage contacts will automatically have the new information.

Naturally, you can tailor your presence around your privacy requirements, by sorting your contacts into two different categories: Contact and Connection. For your Connections, HomePage works more like a closed social media platform where you can post photos, videos, and so on.

HomePage seems like a highly promising prospect to us. To check it out for yourself, download it right now on the App Store or Google Play.
