Gmail contacts can be a little confusing — especially once you realise that the popular email service automatically dumps everyone you cyber-converse with into a big "Other Contacts" directory. That makes it easy to autocomplete emails to people Gmail thinks you might interact with again at some future point, but it can also cause a little confusion when unintended names or email addresses appear in your "To:" field.

I recently did a little digging to find third-party apps for managing your address book that were better than Apple’s default Contacts app.

There aren’t any. At least, none that I found were worth using for more than a day (or even installing on my iPhone to begin with). And even the process of letting others have access to your contacts feels troubling, because you have no idea what other companies are doing with the information you provide.

It's a potentially compelling interface -- if you can remember to use it.
