We are a very social and high-tech generation. Almost everyone these days has several social network IDs, addresses, phone numbers and perhaps a website. There is a great deal of time and effort used to input all this data into your Contacts list when you need to store a business acquaintance, friend or family member's information. Do you really want to type this one letter at a time into your device?

Winq takes this big data input job and makes it incredibly simple! Winq is a QR-code (or type of bar code) which when scanned yields all the information that has been entered into it. The function of these codes is to enable instant action accessing data. Some of the useful scanning bar code features of Winq are as follows:

- Create multiple contact cards and store them in QR-format on your iPhone;
- Share your contact cards with others in fractions of a second;
- E-mail contact QR-codes;
- Scan and decode QR-codes: all formats are supported;
- Automatically add new people to your Address Book;
- Find and befriend people on social networks;
- Support for multiple QR-code standards
- Winq can read and decode just about any type of QR-code
- Create QR-codes right on your iPhone.
- Extremely intuitive QR-scanning app
- Facebook and Twitter compatibility

I have made my own winq (or barcode) for my social networks and other contact info. That winq can now be scanned by a friend and inserted into their Address Book, or I can simply mail the winq to whomever I please. Quite frankly, it is a snap to share your contact info once your winq is set up. But the icing on the cake is then using one tap to access your friends' networks from their winq barcode which you have saved on your device. So what do you think - do you really need to exchange paper business cards any more? Here's how to use this awesome QR-code, social networking app.

Open the app, and you will be prompted to use the Tutorial to learn the few, easy steps involved in making a winq. You will also see a file cabinet drawer with 3 folders labeled My winqs, Make a winq and Accept a winq. If you don't read the tutorial immediately, you will find it very easily at the bottom of your screen under the Support tab. Tap Make a winq and name it. Tap Add Details (top left) button to insert the fields you want included. You may choose details including Name, E-mail, Address, Phone, Middle Name, Web page, Mobile phone, Work phone, Home fax, Work fax, Organization, Job title, Work address, Home address, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Skype, Google Talk, AIM, MSN and Note. Add or delete fields using the Edit (top right) button.

Once your own winq is created you can easily share it. Have a friend or new acquaintance scan your winq with his phone, or tap Send to mail via in-app e-mail. The winq will be saved in the Photo Library. To Accept a winq, simply go to this Library and select a winq. Tap on the Address Book shown to insert this winq (information) into your Contacts. You can also immediately access your friend's social networks, or data entered into other fields by tapping the icon next to it. Winqs are a real time saver especially because they can read any QR-code available, which has just made your life a whole lot easier!
COOL CONCLUSION: "Use versatile Winq to instantly exchange social contact data via QR-code in a snap!"
