Substitute for ipad

I use the ipad app to colledt email addresses at receptions, but with the virus around, I don’t have a good feeling about lots of folks sharing that surface with their hands.

 

How hard would it be to come up with a smartphone app where folks could text their name and email address to a special number?

 

Thanks for thinking about it.

Hi @RickKing,

 

I think your idea is great; however, texting to a specific number would be difficult with so many different users. I think a good solution to this would be a way to create a QR code that users could scan with their phone and they could enter their information that could be saved to your studio information. This idea might be good to add to the new “Share Your Ideas” section. Check out this article on how to do that.  Let me know if you post it, I would love to vote +1 on it :)

Thanks,

I’ll second the QR code Idea! You can have a gallery created and set as PRE-RELEASED with the QR code created to point to that specific address. 

Then your guests scan the code and are directed to the webpage on their mobile device to register. Generate a QR code through a site like qr-code-generator.com or even use a link shortening service so that you can track analytics to see how many clicks vs submissions you get.
