Bloop Connect’s (Bloop) aim is to improve upon the way personal and professional information is exchanged and shared while bridging the gap between the physical and virtual identities.
Bloop is modernizing on an age-old paradigm for sharing information that has fallen out of fashion, namely the business card. We seek to change the dynamic of this whole information exchange process by introducing a virtual identity that can be both effectively and selectively exchanged without the need for typing, that is all within the information owner’s control right from the one device that everyone has with them all the time, their cell phone.
New to Bloop
The first thing a new user needs to do is to create their own virtual identity. The first time you install Bloop the application, you will be walked through the creation process. We’ll try to capture your contact information from your phone. All you need to do is fill in any information, and you're done.
A Bloop user takes on two roles: 1. Information Provider and 2. Information Collector. Simply stated, a Provider displays their virtual identity to a Collector, then in the case of two-way information exchange, the roles are reversed.
With Bloop you can:
• Share contact information without the need to type.
• Store captured information within Bloop and selectively push to your phone's default contacts
• Share Linked-In Credentials allowing for fast, efficient, painless on-going connections.
• Share links hyperlinks to documents or files
Bloop Asks for the following permissions:
Bloop uses your camera to camera to capture another user's electronic profile
If granted, Bloop can move selected records from its own database into your phone's contacts.

Easy way to share your business contact info
You can share your business contact info without searching for a card you probably don’t even have or having to engage in an awkward 15-minute back-and-forth.
Such an innovative idea!
I absolutely recommend using Bloop to make sharing contact information as easy as possible! Plus it makes a really fun noise when you share your “virtual business card.”
Found it so helpful in many business settings. Makes connecting and sharing contact information much more convenient!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
