Qwigle is intuitive and should be fun to explore. We have provided instructions with screen shots to help guide you along the way. You can browse either by topic, or by entering your query in the search bar below:
1. User Registration
First-time users must register on this screen. Fill out your first and last name and your mobile phone number starting with area code, so you can receive your unique QR code. You must enter the number of the mobile device on which you have downloaded Qwigle, then tap “Send Verification Code” to receive a verification code by text message.
If you’ve used Qwigle before and are already registered, you may skip this form. Just tap “Already Registered? Click Here!” to proceed to the next screen.
2. Previously Registered Users
If you’ve used Qwigle before and are re-installing the app, enter your phone number starting with area code on this screen. Then tap on “Send Verification Code” to receive your code via text message.
3. Verification Code
Once you enter your name and phone number correctly and tap on “Send Verification Code”, you will receive a text message with your code. Enter it in the box on this screen. Your verification code is the number on the body of the message, and NOT the number on the message header. Please enter it correctly to avoid getting locked out by the system, then Tap “Verify”.
In case you do not receive a verification code, please tap, “No Verification Code? Let’s Try This Again” to start over.
The phone number you enter, must belong to the device on which you’ve downloaded Qwigle. If you enter any other phone number, like your Google Voice or office phone number, this will not work.
4. Exchange – My QR Code
To get to your QR code or scanner, please tap Exchange on the navigation bar. The Exchange screen lets you access your QR Code and Scanner. The picture alongside displays the QR code. The QR code on your screen is unique to you and is associated only with your device.
You can access your scanner by tapping on the Scanner button (shown circled in red here).
You can exchange digital cards with others either by using your scanner to scan their QR code, or letting them scan your QR code with their scanner.
To let someone scan your QR code, just open your app to this screen and hold it out for them to scan. Once scanned, they will have your digital card and you theirs.
5. Exchange – Scanner
Qwigle comes with an integrated scanner which works through your phone’s camera. The app needs your permission to access the camera, without which you won’t be able to use the app.
To use the scanner, tap on Exchange on the navigation bar, then tap the Scanner button (circled in red in the figure).
You can exchange digital cards either by letting someone scan your QR code with their scanner, or by scanning their QR code with yours.
To scan a QR code, simply point your camera at their QR code making sure it is visible within your device’s scanning area (indicated by the corner markers), and hold steady.
If your sound volume is turned up, you will hear the scan. If your volume is not turned up, you will see the corner markers of your scanner turn green indicating a scan has been completed.
9. Searching and Deleting Contacts
The Contact screen displays your contacts in the order in which they were scanned. Your most recent scan appears right on top. All scans have a time and date to help you remember when and where you scanned someone. If you’ve given Qwigle permission to track your location, scans will also have the city and state where you connected.
You can search contacts by entering their name, organization, or the city and state where you connected with them. As you type, you will see matches automatically appear on your screen.
To see a contact’s details, click anywhere on the box containing the contact’s name and it will take you to their digital card.
To delete a contact permanently, swipe left on the box containing their contact name.
This screen lets you invite a contact on your phone’s address book to download Qwigle. You can send them a text containing links to the App Store and Play Store. Just start typing the name of the contact you want to share Qwigle with and the field will auto-populate.
You can also send us feedback if you face any technical issues with the app, or have suggestions to improve it, attaching an image from your phone or computer.
