Hypo App - Fast Contact Sharing

About the product

My personal project is an app for iOS and Android I'm creating for fast contact sharing. It works like: you have the app, you are in some place (like a congress, a coffee shop, a conference) and you can see people around you. Some of them may be potential clients or business partners, so you want to get their contact but you don't have a card right in hand (I faced this many times, and I do have business cards!) 

To do that, you will connect your Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, your phone(s) number(s), email(s) address and anything else you would like to share with someone at some moment. When this moment comes, you just need to select which type of contact you want to give to that person.

The Map

1. Players

a ) Who has downloaded of the app

b ) Who is willing to connect to somebody nearby and has not downloaded the app

2. Selfish reasons

a ) Anyone who has downloaded the app will need to show it to other people (friends or not) whenever he/she would like to exchange contacts. The product will be even more useful for the user if he/she gets more people into it.

b ) Who is willing to connect to somebody would download the app for the reason he/she would like to see who is around and for self-promotion as well.

3. Charging

a ) It will be free for he/she to use. Maybe in the next version we'll add some extra features to be available with an $1.99 upgrade.

b ) It will be free for he/she to use. Maybe in the next version we'll add some extra features to be available with an $1.99 upgrade.

4. Reasons to contact to pay for

a and b ) As soon the platform grows and we have some paid services, it will be more effective for the user to self-promote him/herself if he/she uses the app in paid mode.

5. Channels to invite

Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn Groups, e-mails and personally.

6. Create the invite

Features and Benefits

I think it's important for me to put here my app's features and benefits:

Features: 1) index your mostly used social networks and direct contact channels to share; 2) see who is around you; 3) Receive contacts from others

Benefits: 1) share easily and smoothly your contacts over the air with anybody around you with or without a business card, so it will give you an advantage to find business partners, new friends or even the love of your life (who knows?!); 2) Get to know who is around you and what is their speciality, maybe you are finding for some mobile UI designer ninja and he/she is right behind you; 3) Anyone who wants to connect with you will send you their contact so you can accept they all later when you have time. This is useful when you are a "celebrity" or a lot of people comes to talk with you at once.
