    tried a search, and also looked at the suggested, but can't seem to find what I'm looking for.

    basically, is there a way to add a contact from a web page?

    for example: I do a search for McDonald's (only using because it's a known business), and get a local listing. Can I somehow add the name, address, phone #, and website, to my contacts?

    I want to say that I have before, but I have tried different things for the last 10-15 minutes and can't seem to get it to work. I've done a search from the browser, and a search using the magnifying glass. I get the info I want, but It's as if I have to manually copy/paste each bit of info. That's not as easy as it sounds, because as soon as you exit the contact card, all data is lost unless you save first. (But then you have to go into the card again, select edit, then paste the new data.)

    you can turn the info into a qr code by going to qrstuff.com and inputting the info, then scan onto your phone and hit add to contacts.
    Make sure you hit the radio button for "contact info (vcard)" on the left

    if I'm going to go thru all that, I may as well just enter it manually.

    I'm looking for a way to touch/hold and add to contacts. Obviously from a Google search, and not just going to a webpage expecting this result.
