Digital business cards are a common application for a personal app. The "Quick Card Builder" is a simple tool to build out the key elements of a basic digital card.
The quick card builder saves time. For example, when the user uploads a profile image, the builder will use that image in 4 different places:
- as the profile image on the digital card
- as the profile image in the saveable vCard
- as the app icon that will display on the home screen when the app is saved
- as the favicon that will display when the app is shared
In addition, it will build the contact and social Actions, add contact info to the vCard, add a share action, set up the card as a saveable progressive web app, and build the metadata that will display when the app is shared.
Once complete, you will have an app that looks something like the image below. You can save it to your home screen and begin using it immediately, or you can take advanatge of dozens of other platfrom features to update, add to, and enhance your card. Change its color scheme; add a background image; update the icon; combine the contact actions into a menu; add a video, add a lead form, etc...
Because the quick card builder can overwite existing content, the button will disappear from your app once you have added your first Action. Deleting all of the Actions on an app will cause the Builder buton to reappear.
