The Cardflick has 14 professional designs to choose where you can add information either from social networks or manually. The app automatically finds the nearby users with the help of GPS. You can share it to any nearby phone via Bluetooth or Wi-Fi by flicking your business card outwards.
SnapDat is another iOS app that can create digital business card for you. It has plenty of extraordinary options like adding information from your contacts, adding a custom background. Unlike cardflick, SnapDat can hold multiple cards so that you can create different cards for different occasions.

Card cloud is currently only apps that supports various smartphones including iOS and Android. The app is also served online through a mobile version . Like SnapDat it allows you to create multiple cards and this app is also capable of pulling information from your social networking profiles. However, you can also enter the information manually.
The cardcloud keeps tracks of all the information you shared via your digital business cards including incoming cards.
Bump is another cool application that works cross-platform (iOS and Android). With Bump you can share information just by tapping your device against another bump-installed device. You can share your phonebook contacts and even your social networking details with other users through bump. The weak point of this app is that it works only with bump-enabled devices.
So, these were some popular apps for developing and sharing digital business cards. Traditional Business cards might not be so common today but they still have their value.
