Managing your contacts on your mobile device can sometimes be a thankless task. You probably have better things to do than to go through your digital address book and delete duplicates or update some of the details. But that’s why you have apps to do this for you. If you’re still looking for one though, there’s a new one on Android called FullContact that’s volunteering to be your default contact management assistant.
Basically, FullContact’s aim is to consolidate all your address books from all your devices so you can access them wherever platform you are in now. But this also doesn’t just mean that you can access them, but more importantly, that you can learn important information from them, especially if you’re meeting with someone for an important business transaction or with someone you haven’t been in touch with for some time now.
The app tells you when people have changed jobs or if they’ve made any new big changes in their life, like moving to a new place or a change in civil status, etc. And whatever social information they’ve made available to the public, the app will be able to pull and show you. Because you probably have multiple entries for some contacts, the app “deduplicates” them to make it easier for you to know which one you actually want to contact.
And since you probably have personal and work accounts for your Google Contacts, the app allows you to sync multiple accounts too. FullContact is available on the Google Play Store for free, with in-app purchases for more features.
