Storing Contact Information: Address Book

The Tiger Address Book (path: /Applications/Address Book) is more than a simple contact manager or a mailing label printer. It is a systemwide database that stores all your contact information and is accessible from other applications that require you to “contact people.” So, you, ask, what are these other applications; email is the only place where it could be useful, right? Wrong. Address Book data is available in Safari, Mail, Sherlock, iCal, Fax, iChat AV, Dashboard, and more! A properly maintained Address Book can organize your data and streamline how you use your computer.

Understanding the Address Book Standards

With the LDAP protocol (Lightweight Directory Access Protocol) and vCard 3.0 Personal Data Interchange format, the Address Book is based entirely on open standards and can be used in a cross-platform environment.
