Share your personal & business card information as a QR code with myQRvCard.
Available for iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch and the Apple Watch. Current version requires iOS 9.3 or higher.
Pick an entry from your address book or fill out your own data and myQRvCard creates a personal and a business QR code. QR codes are device independent and can be read from most mobile devices and smartphones. There is no easier way to share your contact information!
Both QR codes can also be displayed on the Apple Watch. (requires watchOS 2 or higher)
FAQ / Help
The smaller the code, the better!
Try to limit the contact entry to as little data as possible. The smaller the QR code, the easier to read/scan, especially on the Apple Watch!
Special characters / umlauts are not properly displayed
The app uses the vCard specification to encode the contact data. vCards use Unicode formatting to encode all special characters, including umlauts. Some QR-Code scanners do not properly support Unicode characters and might display unknown characters instead. Unfortunately, this cannot be fixed within the code – instead try a different QR-Code scanner.
What are the limits for the content?
A QR code can hold up to 3000 characters/bytes – however, such a code would be really big, and not practical at all. The app limits codes to 2000 characters. Some asian character sets do require up to 4 bytes to display one characters, so in those cases the limit is 500 characters.
Using myQRvCard on the Apple Watch
QR codes on the Apple Watch are automatically synched from the iPhone. If you just see the message “Set Data in iPhone app first” instead of a QR code, edit a small bit of information and try again. Updates to the code on the watch are always initiated from the iPhone, when the data of the code changes.
If you have a lot of data in your contact, the code might be to big to properly work on the watch due to the limited display space available. In that case, try to limit the size of your content!
