Free mobile app ends social media profile searches, awkward contact exchanges, and manual input of contact details between new connections
SAN JOSE, Calif. – April 14, 2015 – BridgeX today announced the official launch of its mobile app that eliminates the friction of sharing your contact info and connecting across multiple social media networks. Available as a free download for iPhone and Android smartphones, the app allows users to create and share custom contact cards hassle-free to any smartphone and lets recipients save the information directly to their address book. BridgeX is the only simple and natural smartphone solution that doesn’t require users to enable NFC or Bluetooth connections, or create a third-party account to facilitate the transfer of information. The app is cross-platform and shares the custom contact card of your choice with a simple push notification using nearby location services or an SMS with a link to a web app.

“The way we still share contact information is outdated and inefficient—we fumble with our phones to type in names and email addresses, and it’s painful to search through all the social media networks every time you meet someone new,” said Bruce Youm, CEO and Co-Founder of BridgeX. “When I was serving as a university senator at Columbia, I found it difficult to share contacts and follow up on the social media sites with the countless people I was meeting every day. We created BridgeX to make that process as easy as possible by simply pushing your chosen connection points to others using the smartphone in your pocket.”
Create custom contact cards for different encounters and relationships.
Perfect for exchanges in business meetings, at conferences, social events event, nights out on the town, on college campuses, etc.
Include standard contact info such as email, company, and address, as well as links to your various social media profiles.
Any changes you make on your card are updated in real-time to all BridgeX contacts.
