My wife and I have shared calendar groups and reminders lists (both requires using icloud.com website) for things like travel, parties, and grocery list.

I would love to do the same with contact group, but can't figure out how.

As a workaround, we are using a shared iCloud account for (1) sharing contact groups, (2) Find My iPhone, and (3) app/music/video/book purchases.

  • I'm confused. You're using iCloud to share contacts, but you want to find a way to share your contacts. It sounds like you're already have what you need. What's missing? Or what don't you like about your current solution? Commented Jan 17, 2012 at 14:49

If you have a Mac, open Address Book, select a group of contacts, and then click on the Export button in the menubar. Then export it as a vCard, and email it to anyone you want.

  • I am looking for more "live" (automatic) sharing solution. Using another shared iCloud account does exactly that, but at the expense of having to manage multiple accounts.
