Android: Contacts+, our favourite address book for Android, picked up an update this week. The new version gives you more control over how you browse your contacts, and offers quick-action buttons to let you call, email, or text people directly from your contacts list.
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.
Chrome: Email isn’t the only place you find someone’s contact information. It might be on LinkedIn, their personal website or somewhere else on the web. WriteThat.Name grabs that contact info from anywhere on the web and puts it into your address book.
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.
Android: Contacts+ is one of the most useful address books we’ve seen. It combines photos with information from all your connected services, including Google and Google+, Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn.
Turn your phone’s lock screen into a potentially life-saving tool by adding important In Case of Emergency (ICE) info to it. You can do this by adding the ICE info to the “owner info” settings in Android (under Settings > Security) or, as with setting information to get your lost phone back, using a screenshot of the information as your wallpaper.
