iOS: When it first launched, Cobook was one our favourite address book apps for iOS. Development eventually stopped when it was purchased by FullContact. Now, it’s back, and it works very similarly to the original app.
You have a lot of options for address books on the iPhone, but we like Contacts+ for being a solid option without a lot of bloat. It has heaps of features without being too overbearing or difficult to use.
If you’re looking for a smarter way to manage your contacts, Contacts+ for Android is your best option. It brings a number of features to the table that help you quickly get in touch with your contacts and keep up to date with them.
Fruux is a great way to synchronise contacts, calendars and to-dos across devices, but now the service wants to give you a unified place to manage all of that data as well as keeping it up to date on every screen you use. The new Fruux web editor makes it easy to update contact details and keep everyone organised.
We often find contact information in the body or signature of an email, but we neglect to add it to our contacts and are forced to search our emails for a phone number or address later on. Morse takes care of that problem by pulling contact information stored in your emails and adding them to your address book automatically.
It’s increasingly rare that you ever need a friend’s physical address anymore, but there are occasions where you need to send out a physical letter. If you don’t feel like emailing, calling or posting a Facebook update to track down addresses, Postable is a dead simple and secure address book where your friends can enter their own info.
