During WES we mentioned Gwabbit which was a $9.95/year app that captured and updated contact information using email signatures on your BlackBerry. Josep let me know about Anagram which lets you capture contacts from email signatures for free!!! (I like free 🙂 but hopefully it works well)
Anagram has a free BlackBerry app where you just select and copy the signature and then click the “Capture With Anagram” menu option. It then populates a new contact with that information and lets you save it to your address book! They offer the app free for BlackBerry and Gmail but you have to pay $35 for the outlook plugin. Not sure how good it is but report back in the comments if you like it! Supposedly it also works for appointments and meetings but I am not sure why you would not just use a meeting request…
You can read more about it at this link and send yourself an email with an OTA link. Their OTA links are one time use only so I cannot post it. You can also watch a video of it in action at that link.
