  1. We collaborated actively with CCA on these tests and Qrafter is the only iPhone reader that can detect everything in this test. In fact, it’s ahead of Apple’s own vCard implementation, that’s why iPhone cannot show some fields that Qrafter can detect (while inserting them into address book successfully).


  2. Thanks Roger. But it’s a shame that I am the only developer that responded to them and worked together on this test. I think every developer should try to support the standards in this test. Perhaps quantity does not bring quality (quantity being download numbers and revenue). 😉
