First time users will need to register an account which sets up your contact details. The idea behind Bondaii is to simplify the process of exchanging contact information and then to ensure it’s always up to date.
Initially, fill out your own contact information including personal, work, social, and IM information. A brilliant feature is the application of profiles (e.g. basic, friend, business, and family) which allows you to choose which information is shared with whom. For example, most likely you wouldn’t need to share your AIM username with a new business colleague, but would probably want a friend or family member to have that information. Selecting a profile is easy when choosing the “send my details” icon on the app’s homescreen which lets your share your information via email (or directly to an existing contact). However, the “bond with existing user,” which generates a scannable QR barcode, doesn’t allow you to choose a profile first.
The true value in using the Bondaii Android app is that the contact details you obtain are integrated with your Gmail contacts and are automatically synced if both parties are Bondaii users. This means that if your friend updates their address, phone number, or any other item, their contact information will be updated in real-time on your device so you won’t have to worry about having the most up-to-date information.
- QR codes replace loose, paper business cards
- Setup profiles to choose what information you want to share with a particular individual
- Contact information is automatically synced whenever changes are made
- Slick, functional UI
Areas for improvement:
- Allow profile selection before QR code generation
Conclusion: A simplified, streamlined way to share and update contact information solely using mobile methods. However, the biggest value offered by this app (real-time contact syncing) requires that both people use the Bondaii Android app.
