Shoot: the better business card
This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
Meet people. Shoot them your info!
Shoot allows you to quickly create a card with your photo, contact info, social network links, and all the information that you might want to share with people you meet. All you need is a person's email address to send them a rich-text message containing your information as well as a vCard file so they can quickly add you to their address book. Create separate cards for business, personal, or any other way that you want to represent yourself. Share more info with some people, less with others.
Business cards are antiquated. We forget to bring them with us. We often want different types of cards to give to different people. They get lost. They require manual entry. And they often have the wrong information on them so we end up writing on the front or back of the card to add or correct relevant information.
But business cards have a deeper problem though – processing. When do most of us process the cards which we receive at conferences or other events? It's usually while we're emptying our pockets at the end of the day. We toss them in a pile on the nightstand and often don't revisit them again until much later... or not at all.
Shoot sends emails. The recipient doesn't need any special apps or anything other than an email address. Your recipient receives your card via email and processes your information when she sits down to her inbox ready to process new information. She receives a beautiful formatted HTML email with your profile card, your picture, a map of the location where you met, and optionally a note to remind her who you are. The email also includes a .vcf file which recipients can click to immediately add you to her address book.
Shoot cards can be professional enough to use for business interactions or casual enough to use for more personal interactions.

What's New in Version 1.5
Well that was quite a nap! After many months of hibernation, Shoot is back with some bug fixes we think you'll be happy to see.
- Fixed the note field when sending a card (it was super broken for some iOS 8 users)
- New card creation option: import your record from Contacts and save some typing!
- Fixed some more bugs that showed up in iOS 8
- This update requires iOS 8. Sorry, iOS 7 users—onward and upward!
Keep an eye out for more updates, and as always, we'd love to hear your feedback! Drop us a note any time at email@example.com.
Enjoying the app
Very beautiful interface. I love the option to create different cards for business and personal. I would like to see an option not only to send via email but also via text message. Also what it's missing is saving your cards either on iCloud or dropbox backup my app was updated and I lost all my cards I had to redo them.
Photos don't appear in e-mailed messages
This will do the job of getting your contact info to someone quickly, but it's disappointing that the headshot and the background cover photo you upload as the "design" part of the card don't show up in the e-mail the person gets.
Waste of time
The app freezes up every time I even try to use it.
