ContactMailer - Download it from the App Store

They just asked for a phone number, right? Not a phone number, three emails, five IM handles, a postal address, employment details, web URLs, date of birth and shoe size. That's when Contactmailer comes to the rescue.

Forward the contact details they requested, without all the stuff they didn't.

OK, we'll keep the sales pitch short and sweet, because rocket science this ain't. Contactmailer is a very basic app that enables you to quickly select individual contact details from a contact card in your iPhone's address book, then send them in an email with no fuss and no faff. That's all there is to it.

Keep things on a need-to-know basis.

So you're out to lunch with an acquaintance and s/he casually asks for Susan's number. Sure, you could just slip out your iPhone and email a vCard, but that contains Susan's whole life story. Do you really want this person to know where she lives? Could be an axe-wielding stalker. Best not share Sue's birthday with strangers, either. Identity theft is rife these days.

No worries: just launch Contactmailer, scroll through your contacts, pick a card and tap on the field(s) you want to forward. It'll insert the contact details from those fields - and only those fields - into an email ready to send. Simple.
