Add Contacts More Efficiently with AddMeNow
When you’re out and you meet someone new, what do you do? Chances are that if they’re interesting, you add them to your contacts list. Most people do this by sending a message to their new friend so that both parties have each other’s contact info. But it’s now 2013, and there should be a better way than entering in contact details and manually texting afterward.
Thanks to XDA Recognized Contributor SystemErrorOne‘s new application AddMeNow, adding contacts is now significantly easier. When you first load the application, you enter your contact information. Once you’ve entered in your information and added a picture, you can add new contacts. After you’ve entered your new contact’s information, you can add them via call or text, which sends them your contact information that you entered previously.
Sweetening the pot further, SystemErrorOne is also providing the premium version of his application free of charge to XDA community members! The free version does away with ads, allows for custom text in the Add with Text option, and most importantly, allows for contact details to be shared via NFC. Future versions will incorporate MMS functionality so that your profile picture will also be sent along with your contact details.
If you often find yourself meeting new friends and sharing your contact info, make the process more efficient by heading over to the application thread and giving AddMeNow a shot. While you’re there, don’t forget to visit the second post for the XDA User-exclusive free premium download and be sure to leave your feedback for the developer in the thread.

QuickPic, Google Photos, and the other mainstays treat raw images like they don't exist. This rundown seeks to fill the void and give you full control over your precious pictures....
While the majority of the top apps have already incorporated Google's newest design language, there are still very many apps that are in need of some Material Design love. Which apps do you think are most desperately in need of an update?
