IDAutomation QR-Code Generator - vCard Contact Recognition on IPhone or Android

We love the IDAutomation QR-Code Image Generator application as it has many options that are very user-friendly in producing QR-Code barcode images.

We were wondering how to make a QR-Code barcode that will be recognized as a contact (vCard) by an app on iPhone or Android using the IDAutomation QR-Code Image Generator.

Operating System: Windows, iOS, Android

Application: QR-Code Image Generator

To target a specific version of vCard, such as 2.1 - 4.0, it is suggested to use the Barcode Properties tab and enter the information in the 'Data To Encode in Barcode' field.

Adapting the example for vCard 2.1, a business may use something similar to this (one attribute per line, as the vCard standards suggest):

BEGIN:VCARDVERSION:2.1
ORG:Example Company, Inc.
TEL:555-555-5555
URL:http://www.example.com
END:VCARD

Produces this barcode:

An individual might use the following:

BEGIN:VCARDVERSION:2.1
N:Public;John Q
FN:John Q. Public
TEL:555-555-5555
URL:http://www.example.com
END:VCARD

Which produces this barcode:
