For all the fancy features on our phones, somehow keeping our many streams of contacts organized remains a tedious hassle. When you meet someone on Facebook, get a phone number, connect via Gmail, or get in touch through any of the other myriad forms of communication we use daily, you create a new contact in an isolated contact category.
1Sync is vying to be the bridge between your phone’s many contact islands. Developers at Kraftwerk9 built it to handle the dirty work of getting contacts in order and making them navigable.
Syncing is taken care of automatically by a sophisticated algorithm, and it’s easy to move contacts between your email contacts and phone books, create mirrored lists, and back up to other accounts.
It’s a powerful addition for anyone who relies on their phone to stay in touch, and get this — it’s free.
1Sync makes contact management easy
Ease of use is the name of the game with 1Sync. Everything is handled from a simple home screen, from which you can easily transition between accounts and manage the overall flow of the syncing process.
It’s a one-touch affair to get at all your account details and the contents of your contacts lists. There are more advanced features as well, like support for CardDAV and Exchange protocols, as well as the usual suspects like Gmail, iCloud, Outlook and Yahoo! email services.
1Sync asserts top-notch security and reliability, which is essential for information as granular and necessary as your contacts. It even offers a synchronization report at the end of the process, and you can revert to the previous sync if something goes awry. In other words, this is a pretty great solution for your personal or professional Rolodex.
Loads of contacts? 1Sync can handle the task
This contact manager can chew through massive lists of contacts with impressive speed and uncanny precision. There’s amazing versatility and variety, too. Features like attaching your Facebook friends’ profile info and pictures to their entries in your address book are a nice touch, and the ease with which you can sync a contact set between multiple accounts and create mirrors at will gives the sense of being in complete control of your contacts.
