I am... your business card 4+

on the lock and home screen

With the app “I am…”, you can create graphical codes (so-called QR codes) in just a few steps which - when read with any smartphone camera - trigger certain actions.

You can display the QR codes created in this way on the lock screen, the home screen and your Apple Watch. You can also print out the codes and make stickers. You can even program NFC tags (stickers, key chains, smart cards, smart rings, etc.) with these codes.

Which QR codes can "I am..." create and what happens when a smartphone scans this code? Here are some examples:

Import your address book entry from the Contacts app. If this QR code is scanned with the camera of another smartphone, the device will interpret the code as a business card. The name is displayed and after confirmation the address data can be automatically transferred to the address book of the smartphone.

For example: Just show the lock screen of your iPhone with the code "business card" when you are asked for your business card.

Create a Hotspot QR Code by entering the WLAN SSID, password and the type of encryption of a router.

For example: If you get visitors, your guest wants to go online and asks you for your access data, show him this code. Your guest's smartphone will then automatically connect to your router.

Create an "Internet Link" code with the address of your homepage.

For example: When you are asked for your homepage, show this code. If a smartphone scans this code, the browser will automatically start and show your homepage.

If you are often asked for your Whatsapp number, just create a "Whatsapp" code and put it on the home screen. When the code is scanned, Whatsapp is opened at the recipient's home screen and the number is copied to their phone directory.

The "Facetime" code works the same way as the "Whatsapp" code.

Just put your Facebook username in a Facebook code. The code will open the Facebook app at the recipient's site after scanning and shows your timeline.

Like the "Facebook" code, the codes for "500px", "Flickr", "Instagram", "Pinterest", "Twitter", "Vimeo" or "YouTube" also work.

Example: Assuming your hobby is street photography. Sooner or later you will be asked by a passer-by where your photos can be seen. Just show him the Flickr code on your Apple Watch. The passer-by's smartphone will immediately open your albums on Flickr. No notes, no pen!

For each of your barcodes, you can choose the foreground color, the background color, the logo in the middle of the code and a wallpaper for the lock screen. You can also move, rotate and resize the code.

You can print out your QR code and make stickers. You can also transfer your codes to NFC chips (stickers, smart cards, key chains). Use NFC chips that are "compatible with iOS". (e.g. NTAG216 with 888 bytes)

Some of the data in your codes (e.g. WLAN password, phone number, etc.) are certainly confidential. Don't worry! The data in your codes will not leave App "I am...". They are only stored in the codes within the app. To be absolutely sure, "I am..." works without an Internet connection.

Tip: If you want to know what exactly is stored in your codes, select the code in the carousel, then go to "EDIT" and tap on the QR code in the upper left corner for two seconds.

"I am..." is not free because:
- the app is a full version
- you do not have to take out a subscription
- you are not annoyed by advertising
- your data will not be misused
- and you get free updates for life
