    I am new to the forum...well, this is my first post...I've gotten several questions answered by searching this forum. Thanks in advance to all who help each other here!

    That being said, I have my own question.

    Sometimes I come across websites that have lists of contacts and addresses and phone numbers accessible to me. i would like to put them in my contacts, but i would have to copy and paste a ba-gillion times to get this done. Is there an app that can create a contact group from a website?

    Thanks,
    Johnathan

    I'm not aware of one however I have found a workaround that works .... sometimes....

    I copy the entire webpage into a document processing program - such as Apple's Pages. In that app, if I touch the contact details briefly a pop-up menu appears offering me the option to enter the details as a new contact. It doesn't always work and I still have to do them one at a time, but it's easier than copying and pasting.
