#3 Import/export contact information from vCard (VCF) files


Most contact managers export and import contact files to/from vCard formatted files (vcf) but OSMO does not.

It would be a very convenient feature because a lot of people (let's say, me) are already using one of those contact managers.

If you have stored a lot of contacts with lots of data, reentry all the data again is not even an option.

    ---> import of contacts... cvs-import is buggy, too. Code for import/export can be found @ mozilla project.

    If anything, I think export is more important than import.

    Offtopic: OSMO is a great project! keep it open source, simple and lightweight.

    I think such feature is most important and should be on top priority.

    I want contacts to be import from and be export to my cellphone which uses .vcf file format for contacts (e.g. Android).

      A friend of mine has over 3000 contacts in her cell phone; VCF import support would indeed help her.

    Update title to Import contact information from vCard, since it is possible to export to VCF since Osmo version 0.2.14.
