What is the best substitute for traditional business cards?

I am looking for a service which can effectively replace physical business cards. Something that allows me to share my contacts in a cool way while making easy for my contacts to save my information to their phones. Ability to organize my contacts a plus!

    Digital business card

    Ping is the best digital business card replacement I've seen. It opens immediately to an email field so it's quick and easy to connect with someone while conversing at an event.

    I believe this is what you are looking for. It's a really cool way to add your contacts by just their email

    By entering just one email address, Ping shares all your contact details as well as helps you to learn more about the person you are working with as well as his/her company. Great tool!

      I’ve seen several business card-like apps over the years. Ping is probably the best executed version of this, although it doesn’t quite meet my needs.

      After entering someone’s email, it adds them as a contacts within the app; however, these contacts are only accessible on mobile (iPhone), housing only a small subset of people I know. I’m seeking a more comprehensive tool to use as a personal CRM of all the people I know, indexed, categorized, and easy to update. Ping isn’t that (yet!?) but for those looking to simply replace the business card exchange ritual, this is the best solution I’ve found.

      Great contact tool that I remembered when I ran out of business cards at an event.

    Switchit is an easy to use digital business card. It supports video, audio, and branded graphics. The app automatically saves the contact information of people when networking. Plus, it's integrated with Microsoft Office, Google Calendar, and iCloud Calendar allowing you to schedule follow up meetings from inside the app.

    Seamless, cross-platform exchange. NOT another 'bizcard app'

    Unique technology allows you to send your business card automatically simply by snapping paper business card

      Used it on Android predominantly. Don't see a need to order myself a pack of personal bizcards for events. Will save me 100$ at least.

      Its the only realistic alternative to paper business cards. Works great and allowed me to finally stop hoarding paper cards. *DROP mic*
