vCard via SMS

vCard via SMS


Send and receive vCards via SMS messages.

Application allows vCard to be shared as an SMS through contact's or vCard-files' share menu. VCard is sent as a single binary data message. Due to size restriction and compatibility with older phones, only one name and one number is included in the message.

When incoming SMS contains a vCard, application catches it. User is then
notified and can launch whichever vCard utility is installed. Application
handles both data and text SMS.

known issues

* No support for vCard-secure. (I have no equipment to test this functionality.)

* Should ask for confirmation before sending SMS, because it's easy to misclick with touchscreens.

* Won't work for sharing multiple contacts at the same time. (Option is there, but functionality is not.)

* Got some crash reports, which I'm unable to replicate, from Sony Ericsson Xperia users. :(

Fundamental misunderstanding how app should be implemented To send contact info (usually mine), I am forced to pick the recipient from my address book (but that's exactly the info I don't have). Much better would be implement like standard SMS picker where I can enter just a phone number.

it works! Pro: it works ! It's integrated very good with the user menu. The received contact is displayed after import. Cons: The name of the sender is not displayed only the number. not that important. Not all details are sent: birthday, emails etc, if you have multiple phone numbers, you have to choose one of them; Keep up the good work, it looks very promising!

Can't get it to work Maybe I am crazy but this does not seem to load up and it hasn't been able to pull cards off of texts...
