Address Book Objective-C Framework Reference for Mac

The Address Book is a centralized database for contact and other personal information for people. Users need to enter personal information about themselves and their friends only once, instead of entering it repeatedly whenever the information is used. Applications that support the Address Book framework share this contact information with other applications, include Appleā€™s Mail and iChat.
