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.
Fruux has come a long way since the last time we mentioned it. The service seamlessly synchronises data such as contacts, calendars, to-do lists and reminders across devices, operating systems and platforms. It supports OS X, Linux, Android, iOS and Windows as well as specific apps such as Thunderbird, Outlook, Evolution, emClient, Busycal and Rainlendar. You can read about all of the supported apps and platforms here.
Now, the team behind Fruux wants to give you a central place to edit the data that it manages for you. Instead of using the clumsy contact-editing tools in your email client or on your phone, Fruux’s web editor gives you an attractive and functional interface for managing your contact details, adding relevant information, importing new contact details, and merging or deleting duplicates (when the service doesn’t catch them on its own). The web app also has some other useful features, including the ability to schedule events with your contacts, and share address books, calendars and to-do lists.
Fruux is free for two shares and two devices, which is great for getting your foot in the door and seeing if it will work for you, but it’s a little short if you want to keep a home computer, work computer and a smartphone in sync. To do that, you’ll need to step up to the Pro version, which offers unlimited shares and 10 devices. That will set you back €4 ($6) per month or €40 ($60) per year.
