iOS contacts app


Hi everyone.

Any good contacts apps for iOS you can recommend. Not many good ones to choose from it seems (besides Interact). Do you agree?


While it’s not available yet, Flexibits (the company behind Fantastical) announced that they’re looking for testers for Cardhop for iOS:

I’m a big fan of Cardhop for Mac…and am really looking forward to having this app on iOS.


Can you say a little more about what you’re looking for that’s missing in Apple Contacts?

In general, I’ve found that people who need much more than is in the stock Apple apps may find useful a lightweight CRM alternative.

Also, if you or your company has an Office 365 Business Premium account Microsoft Outlook CRM is included and is pretty good (according to someone I know who uses it).


Didn’t know they were working on an ios version. I’m excited by the prospect. Thanks Tim!


I’ve had good luck with FullContact. It’s a subscription service, but it’s worth the cost to me for its ability to keep things organized. It does too much to go into here, but I think they have a trial.


I feel likewise about FullContact.


FullContact has a basic free plan as well - you can store up to 1,000 contacts and sync one account from Google, iCloud, or Exchange. (It used to be 5,000 contacts :man_shrugging:)


Frankly I’m just looking for an Interact replacement: good parsing engine and an ability to work with contact groups that I arrange as a kind of folder - group for close family, uncles, cousins, friends, etc. Cardhop coming to iOO is really good news for me.


FYI. FullContact just released a video of a webinar they had on the recent new things they have done with the app.
