Inviting friends to a web application is a key factor to gain more users and traffic.

In this article we will try to give a practical, step by step web development example on how you can easily import google contacts to your web application, because even if google offers an api documentation, it’s always hard to find an example that is not out-dated,  that fits in your app without having headaches and losing precious time.

This tutorial will offer examples for Server Side application (php) but also for Client Side application (javascript). We will use OAUTH 2.0 authentication and Google Contacts API version 3.0.
