Please LinkedIn give this little app some love.

CardMunch from LinkedIn


I recently saw an article in Lifehacker about clever ways to use your phone’s camera. I saw it mentioned CamCard and while this is a good app I really like CardMunch much better. I like that I can snap a picture and throw away the paper. I love that i can send an invitation to connect via LinkedIn from the app too.

Now, what I don’t like is how it feels like LinkedIn has abandoned this little app to the ether. I’m officially begging for some updates like:

  • Saving the pictures to a local folder in the camera roll automatically.
  • Emailing the info and pictures to yourself or others.
  • Emailing the info as a vcf.
  • Decreasing the amount of time it takes to submit and recognize a card. (This has been a sore point for me).
  • Better management and searchability of Notes.
  • Etc…

These and many other reasons made me write this and unofficially reach out to LinkedIn for some feedback.

What other apps do you all use for Business Card Management and Networking? Leave a comment.

This little script lets your iOS users know your site can be added as an app

If you have navigated to some sites on your iPhone or iPad recently, you may have noticed the “Add to Home Screen” balloon. This lets users add the current mobile friendly website installed as a web app on their iOS Screens.

I thought this could be a useful addition to a responsive site I’m working on so I searched how to get this working. To my surprise and delight I ran into Matteo Spinelli’s website. He’s published a nifty little script and some CSS to quickly add this to your web apps.

The full article can be found here. I haven’t had issues with it on iPhones although on iPads it looks a little rough around the edges. I still recommend you give it a try, I promise it will be time well spent :-).
