My phone's contacts app is perpetually a mess, filled with old contacts I don't need anymore, duplicate contacts from merging email accounts and upgrading to new phones, and more.
Is there a better way to manage details about the people you know? Do you have a favorite tool to organize your family, friends, and colleagues' contacts and keep up with phone numbers, addresses, birthdays, and more?
If you're just looking to manage family, friends and colleagues, something like Monica or UpHabit might be enough but the nice thing about Clay and Folk is they enrich your contacts which is nice for networking.
From a pure contacts app perspective—something trying to hue closer to an address book than a CRM—there are several apps that are interesting but only feel like they solve part of the problem.
Cardhop (from the team behind Fantastical) adds a nicer UI to the contacts experience, lets you add contacts in a plain text sentence that it then parses out into contact details, and adds more detailed notes to contacts than the standard iOS contacts app allows—but it doesn't have detailed tools to merge contacts or sync from other sources.
BusyContacts (again from a team behind a calendar app) does sync social network contacts—but surprisingly doesn't have a way to remove duplicate contacts, nor a mobile app. It might be a good option for a native Mac CRM, though, without a subscription.
Then, I was thinking that FullContact had a mobile app that'd been shut down, but turns out it's been reborn as Contacts+, and that seems like it might be closest to what I'm looking for. It can remove duplicates and says it combines similar contacts, can scan business cards (the original feature I'd used in their older iOS app), and offers contact enrichment. I may have to take it for a spin.
The market is bursting with new software, a lot of new products are launching every day. A few months ago I posted on Capiche about my SaaS idea. Your feedback is priceless and helped us to change...
