At SXSW Interactive this year, many attendees skipped the business cards and instead swapped contact info via Hashable, “the ultimate networking app.” Hashable was super useful for us during SXSW (since we ran out of business cards the first day), and it’s an environmentally-friendly solution.
The Hashable app (free), available on iPhone and Android devices, allows you to:
- Exchange contact information by entering the Twitter handle or email address associated with the other person’s Hashable profile.
- Check in to a location and tag the people with you. The check-in can be a public one that tweets your location and companions, or it can be used as a CRM tool that allows you to privately note meetings with people in your network.
- See who your contacts are meeting through an “Activity” tab that displays public check-ins.
If you’d like to give Hashable a try, sign up for an account here. To download the app for iPhone, click here. To download the app for Android, click here. Let us know if you find Hashable as useful as we did.
