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.
iOS: Buzz Contacts replaces your iPhone’s contacts app with a contacts manager and dialler that’s easy to navigate, offers partial name and number search, lets you quickly SMS or call your contacts, organise your contacts by list and category, and looks good in the process.
Oddly enough, there aren’t too many contact management tools for Android that aren’t also dialler replacements, or focused entirely on replacing whatever built-in tool you have on your device already. We have to agree with our iOS counterparts on this one — Smartr by Xobni is the best address book for Android, if you’re looking for a contact manager that actually makes it easier to find and interact with the people you need to talk to.
