Business Networking Apps

I started experimenting with some business networking apps this week. It's too soon to say whether they'll be useful, but you may have a completely different experience with them than I do, so I'm sharing them here for you to conduct your own testing. 

These apps work like the Tinder app for dating with the "swipe left to ignore, swipe right to connect" functionality, but the apps are designed for making business connections. The three apps I'm testing are:

  • Bumble Bizz: Shows the most promise for me, so far. I like their interface the best.
  • Shapr: A well-established app in the business networking space. 
  • Ripple: A brand new app in the business networking space. Created by the people who created Tinder. Not many features currently, but I expect that to change quickly.
