Top Stories contacts
iOS: PureContact, a gesture-driven contacts manager and speed dialler that was previously Android only, is now available for the iPhone as well. You’ll see all of your contacts in a grid arranged by their faces, and you can assign gestures to call, text, WhatsApp or email them.
Among its many awesome features, Microsoft Outlook allows you to easily map a contact’s address using Bing Maps, making it simple to find their location. If you would rather use Google Maps instead, a simple registry edit will fix that.
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.
