About VCard

VCard or VCF (Virtual Contact File) is a file format for exchanging electronic business cards. VCard file contains records of VCard type, each having the information from one business card. VCard record can include an address, name, logo, phone numbers, URL, video and audio fragments, etc. 

VCards can be exchanged in many ways, such as MMS, World Wide Web, attached to e-mail messages, through QR code or instant messaging. VCard is used as a data interchange format in customer relationship management (CRMs), personal digital assistants (PDAs) and personal information managers (PIMs). 

Usually, VCard is used to quickly add a person to your contacts. When you import the data from a VCard file, you import the data from the fields into matching fields in a new contact record. You can see this process when you receive a message with a person’s VCard in it. When you click on the VCard - the person's information is imported into your contacts. 

VCards allows to make it easier for people to add contact information into their contacts. It is also possible to add VCard to your email’s signature. 
Also, you can process multiple VCard files. You can import or export multiple contacts into one file. 

Aspose.Email Cloud API allows to work with VCard files in your applications. Using the cloud approach helps to increase the processing speed of the applications, that are developed with Aspose.Email Cloud.
