vCarder relies upon the user's familiar e-mail service, requiring only a standard SMTP account. vCarder does not route sensitive data through obscure channels or unknown and untrusted servers somewhere on the Internet.
On local wireless networks, vCarder uses Apple's Bonjour to send contact information to any connected iPhone or iPod touch with vCarder installed. Compatible mobile devices are automatically detected, no configuration is required.
vCarder fully supports Unicode, correctly handling umlauts and accents, as well as foreign writing systems. Japanese or Russian users can contact colleagues and friends, pristinely preserving their vCards' original appearance.

* comfortably send digital contact information (vCards) from your iPhone or iPod touch
