The semi-private business networking service which helps users in staying connected through Twitter and email, Hashable, is up and live on iTunes. Prospective users waiting for an #intro to Hashable can now invite themselves by downloading Hashable’s iPhone app.

So what exactly does Hashable do? Well this service makes it fairly easy to introduce two people via Twitter or email, or keep track of people users have #justmet or had #lunch with or showed a #demo to. Till now, users had to remember to Tweet out the correct hashtag and the Twitter handle of the person they interacted with so that Hashable would be able to record it. It worked fine for people who adopted Hashable early, but now the iPhone app makes sure that there is no switching back to Twitter and email hacks.

What’s even better about this service is the fact that Hashable can most definitely replace the need to swap business cards. As when users make an #intro via #Hashable or when they record a connection with anyone, each person gets a link back to each other’s profile page, and these connections can then be searched via hashtags.

The Hashable iPhone app pulls in the users contacts from the address book on their phone, Twitter, and Gmail and amalgamates them. The app then in turn lets the user introduce any two people in their address book as well as record a connection that they make with a person. The app turns the users address book into relationship books which is searchable by tags; however it depends upon the fact that how frequently Hashable is actually used. Hashable also measures the strength of each relationship.

The connections made through Hashable can be recorded privately or shared publicly on Hashable and Twitter. The more people a user follows on Hashable, the more they can see connections happening in their stream. More Hashcred can be earned if a user uses Hashable quite frequently, which in turn helps the user climp up the leaderboard for their respective city and among their network.

The Hashable iPhone app can be downloaded from here.
