MSKYNET Adds vCard Support for BlackBerry QR CodesPosted by on January 20, 2010 in Announcements
With the recent launch of SPARQ Coder for Salesforce.com applications, we have been receiving a lot of requests to enable BlackBerry support for QR Codes with address book entries. To our disappointment, it appears that BlackBerry Messenger 5.0 and all the QR Code scanners available for that platform do not support any Address Book Contacts such as the MeCARD format. To work around this problem we have come up with a fairly novel solution and we are happy to announce that our QR Code Generator API (QRGen) now supports vCards that work with BlackBerry. Using a combination of our database compression and dynamic vCard generator we not only fully support vCards for BlackBerry but we also simplify the QR Code data payload needed which is much less compared to a traditional MeCARD.
