On Windows Phone, Square sharing is caring

A fantastic new photo and contact sharing app has popped up for Windows Phone, and it’s one of the most attractive and useful I’ve seen in recent memory. I always giving out my business card to people, but as often is the case I am without one when I need it most.

Square allows you to take advantage of some of Windows Phone’s most prominent and accessible features, namely pinning tiles to the home screen, by creating a special QR code specifically for yours, or another person’s contact information. It does this in a Metro-styled UI that reeks of class — all Windows Phone apps should look this good — and, though simple, does what it claims to extremely well.

You can share photos from your Camera Roll or contacts from your People hub, and once selected, the choice is rendered in a QR code that can be scanned by anyone with a barcode scanner, on any platform. The only pre-requisite is a data connection. Scanning a code with another phone running Square, or on any barcode scanner, will open the photo or VCard in a browser window.

While QR codes may not have taken off as much once thought, it’s still a very handy technology. Square simplifies the act of sharing pertinent contact information, and I can see myself using it a lot as a result.
