Me Card


Me Card MECARD is new format for sharing contact information. A MECARD is a single line of text containing all of the meta data needed to populate an address book entry; name, address, telephone number, email address and URL.

The Me Card webapp from Coldtags Suite saves the contact information you enter in HTML5 local storage and creates a QRCode containing your MECARD. It works with most mobile barcode scanners and operating systems. I used it successfully with Barcode Scanner on Android and UpCode on a Nokia N8
