Best of the independent contact apps!

I had been looking for a contact app that did several things. Including:

– sync to Google groups

– have pictures next to contacts (I like to create a group for each kind of meeting I go to, and review them before hand)

– Not duplicate my contacts every time it syncs

– Not have annual fees

Now, I’ve tried a few different ones, and I realized that I needed to compromise in order to get the results I wanted. So for example, I was trying to sync contacts from Google contacts, office 365, and the iPhone. This was causing just too many problems. I realized it would be much easier to manage contacts mainly through one service, and I chose Google contacts. Once I did that, I found that this app did the best job, along with Synctastic, it’s sister app, at keeping things in sync. And Google contacts itself does the job of merging duplicates.

Now, this seems to be a one person operation, which does have its drawbacks. Who knows how long it will be supported. And there are bugs. But that one person is very dedicated, and responds to your inquiries, and tries to fix things. So you’ll have to judge if dealing with a few bugs is worth the benefit of having an app that does what you need it to do.

a2z contacts

this app has really messed up my iphone‼️‼️ when i installed & opened it had saved my contacts. ok so i cked out several & found they had been a bit -like ID on a # was changed on quite a few contacts. i opened app again to contact someone & found contacts saved again-BUT DUPLICATED‼️ for heck of it- closed/opened -i am up to 2987 contacts. let’s just say that’s almost 6Xs my contacts. + they are really “scattered” w/in my list. i emailed, got a response fm a donald, tried to explain, email back saying not gonna happen. nxt you got it-not heard fm “donald” r anyone again. there’s no way to fix it nut to go thru every contact. BUT each contact is not saved the same way. now i’ve lost some impt data i can’t get back. i can’t even find a word that can express frustrations.
has anyone had anything remotely close to this bizarre jerk⁉️ i deleted app so i didn’t get 6000 contacts‼️also just discovered it’s duplicated my pictures‼️‼️ my carrier can’t seem to help altho i’ve not talked w/ tech & that’s as soon as i finish this.
good luck if you happen to try this‼️ my name’s cathy. sry mo more b/c of those who think they can jerk me around. but I AM A REAL PERSON‼️

Overly Complex.

There’s too many versions of this particular contact app. One does this, one does that, and each one has a price tag on it. I don’t even know which one I’m reviewing. All the icons are too similar to differentiate between them. I bought and used one for Contacts only after I purchased one to sync contacts between Google and iCloud. Apps need full access to your phone and info in order to work. Backup data is app specific also. I had an issue with my contacts going from 100+ to over 1200+. Randomly duplicated some contacts but not others. Basically, I didn’t have a good experience. I will say that customer service was quick to reply and assist with my issue despite my less than pleasant demeanor. The whole thing could just be beyond my understanding. I’m less knowledgeable about these things than others. Rating based on personal experience only. You may be smarter and have better luck.
