I was fascinated by Google Android platform and about one year ago I bought my first Android phone (HTC Magic). Well the platform was not that much mature at that time and my phone was lacking many features. With time it matured and evolved. After waiting a long time and spending a lot of hours to search a application which could send business cards and receive them as well, I couldn't find one which could fulfill my needs. So I decided to create one for me.

Here I present my first android application - Share Contacts

Minimum Requiremet:
Android 2.1

Features:

Send contacts by SMS
Pick up contact information from saved contracts
Send Customized information
Retrieve contact information from SMS
Save retrieved Contact Information in Phone Contacts

Application APK file is attached here.

Please give it a try and provide your feedback (if possible)

THANKS

This AWESOME! Its seems to be working flawlessly on my Nexus One on CM7 nightly rom. Will update more observations soon. God bless you for this.

Aside : I wish others with programming skills would make such amazingly meaningful apps instead of eye candy themes. I hope I learn android programming soon.

Contact saved from received vcard goes into 'phone only, unsynced' group. This cannot be synced with Gmail.

Can you please provide options to choose where/which account to save the contact in?

This would make it perfect!!
