Android/iOS: Updating your contacts every time your friends change their info can be annoying, especially if you don't know they have changed it. Addappt, on the other hand, is a social contacts app that updates automatically.

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.
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.
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.
There are piles of address book alternatives for the iPhone, but after digging through them all, we settled on Smartr Contacts as your best bet. It gives your contacts an upgrade by adding a historical overview of your interaction and adds social media updates to their pages. Overall, your address becomes much more useful.
