ContactIO - Contact Sharing
by: eCommit Consulting Services • 4
Using the standard Android platform, it's difficult to share a selection of your contacts with other people. Although individual contacts can be exported to a vCard, there is no simple and easy way to share a subset of your contacts with other people.
With ContactIO, Contact Sharing becomes easy, as it allows you to share a selection of your contacts with other people by exporting and sending them in an easy way, using a variety of formats.
Simply select the contacts that you want to share, and have ContactIO share the contacts in a variety of different ways
* have ContactIO generate an email with a vCard attachment including your selected contacts.
* have ContactIO generate a vCard and put it on the filesystem / dropbox.
* have ContactIO generate an MMS with a vCard attachment (needs to be supported by your phone).
* have ContactIO generate an SMS/MMS with your contacts embedded in it.
Share the selected contacts by sending the email/file/sms to one or more recipients from your contact list.
Using ContactIO, you can import/export all your contacts from your address book in bulk from one phone to another.
ContactIO copies telephone/cellphone numbers, email / postal addresses, and organizational information.
It allows you to export it to a vCard 2.1 format that can be interpreted by other Android phones.
That way, selective contact sharing (with a clean email integration) becomes very easy.
On the receiving end, the vCard can be processed using ContactIO directly from the mail application. The receiver will be presented with a screen containing the contacts sent to him/her, allowing the receiver to select whatever contacts that he/she wants to import onto the phone.
ContactIO also allows you to process vCards located on the phone SDCard.
By doing so, ContactIO allows you to inspect the vCard and select the contacts you're interested in to import on your phone.
