    The link to the email appears in the gmail but when I click on it, a new email opens but no option to add to contacts. I need a simple way to explain to my 83 yr old mother without having to manually add through the contacts icon.

    Are you sharing a contact from your phone? If so just click on the contact and save as new.

    Gmail app? Or the native mail app? Because I just tested it and in the native mail app, if I get an email from a sender not in my contacts, if I tap on the email address, I go to another page that has options to 'create new contact' or 'add to existing contact'.

    Sorry I am trying to do this on an iPad. When I open an email in Gmail and want to save an address that is in the body of the email, I can click on the email address as a link but it just opens up a new compose window with address autopopulated. If I try to click on the address in the To: field it does not give me an option to create new contact. I can click on the + sign but it only show existing contacts with no option to automatically add the new address.

    Ok. An email address in the body of an email. Don't just tap on it. Touch and hold and you'll get a pop up to either for 1) new message or 2) add to contacts. Tap add to contacts and from there you'll get options to add to an existing contact or create a new one.

    Great tip. This works in the native email app too.
