Building contact info into a telephone link

  • # January 15, 2013 at 3:30 pm

    Has anyone found a way to build in contact information into a telephone link?

    Call (555)123-4567

    So that when people using mobile click on the phone # link you can “add to contacts” without having to have the user generate that information.
    There must be a way to generate this, like a QR Code does.
    Any thoughts?

    a QR code doesn’t *generate* anything – it’s just textual information.

    What a phone *does* with that info is up to the phone.

    I’d be surprised if there wasn’t “an app for that.”
