What’s this app for? The AlwaysConnected App turns your existing phone contacts and people you meet in person into a live network. Create a connection card about you. It should speak to the reason you are connected/connecting with people. Message the card link to the cellphone of a contact you would like to stay more in touch with on that subject/passionate interest/business. Update the card and card feed to keep your contacts informed.
What happens when my contact uses the connection card link I texted? Your contact doesn’t need to do anything but accept the app download to have your card and your contact info in her/his phone contacts. She/he can delete the card any time. She doesn’t have to register or join to keep the card and see your updates. If your contact makes a connection card and sends it to you, then the two of you will be able to direct message through the app.
So my contact info ends up in their phone contacts when I send them my connection card? Yes. Use the info button at the bottom of your connection card page to enter your phone number, email, and company name. This information will appear with your name in their phone contacts when they download the card. A link back to the connection card in the app will also appear in the phone contacts.
I downloaded the app (and/or received a card). How can I create my first connection card? Use the Create First Card button. Fill in the information. Choose a title that fits the interest you want to be in touch with people about. For example, “Business Strategist”, “Tennis Player”, “Programmer”, “Investor”, “Amateur Astronomer”, “Inside Sales”, etc. These are the things you do that you want to talk to other people about and network for. Once you create your first card you are registered and logged into the ThreeSpaces platform. ThreeSpaces runs the software and database behind the app.
How do I add a picture and a description? Once a connection card has been created, you can add a photo and description using the edit function on the connection card page.
How do I add feed items? Use the feed button to go to the feed page from your connection card. Use the add feed button (+) to add each feed item. You can add text and links, for now. Video and audio will come soon.
How do I send a card once I’m ready? You can easily send connection cards to cellphones via text link or QR code, and to email addresses. Use the space at the top of your card to enter a phone number or email address. Use the icon next to that space to search for contacts in your phone contacts. Hit send at the bottom of the page when you have the correct info. If you chose a cell number for texting, the app will take you to the text, so you can add a personal message and hit send. If you are with someone who has a QR enabled phone camera, then they can just snap a photo of your QR code and be taken to the link.
How do I message someone whose card I have? You can only message someone who has your card and whose card you have. Once you have exchanged cards you can direct message with someone in the app. Click the message tab at the bottom of the app. Choose the person you want to message. You can send text and links via message. Multi-media is coming soon.
What’s the QR code for? QR codes are convenient for sending or exchanging links and information. The QR code for your card contains the link to your card and contact information: your name, title, and info (email, phone, and company name). Someone can use their phone to scan the QR code from your card on your phone in order to exchange cards. You can also save the QR code from the info page of your card. This allows you to use it for print cards and for promotional or other emails you may send.
How do I logout? The AlwaysConnected app keeps you logged in for up to a year. This is convenient so you almost never need to login again. If you should want or need to logout for any reason, the logout button is on the account tab at the bottom of the app.
Will there be more app features? Yes! There is lots more to come. This version is our “MVP”, the Minimum Viable Product. You guys are our early adopters. Thank you for your help!!! Please give us your feedback.
