I cover the Mail app in Chapter 7. You’re probably familiar with email already, which means you probably know about attachments. If not, an attachment is simply a file that you send along with an email message.
When you tap the Share Contact button, you’ll have two options—Email or Message. I’ll choose Email and the Mail app will open. The information for the contact you are currently viewing will be saved as an attachment that can be emailed to someone else. If you send this to someone else who has the Contacts app, tapping on the attachment will automatically add that information to their list of contacts. Figure 4.16 shows a new email message that will be sent to Donna Kelly. The Sally Mason information is appended to the bottom of the message—all I have to do is click the Send button and the information is on its way to Donna.
