CardHop is one of the best ways to manage and interact with your cards. The app made by Flexibits has now received a major update with some long-awaited requests, and even more integration with its sibling-app Fantastic.
CardHop 2.1 seeks to improve integration with Fantastic by enabling the app to create events and tasks in the Calendar app that link back to specific CardHop actions.
For example, you can ask CardHop to perform a task in Fantastic to call a specific contact, by placing a link to the CardHop call action in the task’s notes. Or perhaps you can set a time for one of your other contacts to FaceTime. CardHop will create this event and send it to Fantastic to place it in your calendar, then connect back to the FaceTime action for this contact.
Another interesting feature with CardHop 2.1 is the new Business Card QR Code widget, which places a QR code from one of your business cards on your iPhone’s home screen or Today View, making it easy to share with others.
Last but not least, with Celebrations, CardHop has renamed its “Birthdays” feature so that users can configure reminders for anniversaries the same way they can with birthdays. With it, the app will notify you of that day and perform an action in CardHop to send your wishes.
Update 2.1 also introduces new functions for starting chat and calls in Microsoft Teams. Users can now paste a social media URL into Cardhop and have it extract and display the username instead of the URL, as well as get a bunch of fixes and tweaks.
Flexibits also says that it has improved the overall experience for those running the iOS 16 beta version when using CardHop.
CardHop 2.1 and Fantastic are both free downloads from the App Store. To get all the features, Flexibits offers a free 14-day trial for the premium subscription. After that, the great software pairings run $4.99/month or $39.99/year ($3.33/month). There is also a Family Sharing plan from $7.99/month or $64.99/year.
