Too pretty but yet not as functional for me

This app is pretty and works really good, but this is not for someone like myself who understands and uses the 3D Touch function heavily on iPhone. The reason I say this, is because while the app provides with different and new ways to work with your contacts, it does not provide with a way to work more efficiently with your contacts than the stock Phone and Contacts app. If you are user of 3D Touch, you will understand that a single tap on your favorite shortcut menu when you 3D touch the phone app will dial the number immediately instead of presenting you with a pop up message to cancel or call the number for that contact like Cardhop does instead. This is just one example. Another example is the fact that in the native Phone app, you are able to save your favorite contacts and assigned a specific action when you tap on a contact. In other words, you can save a contact in your favorites, so that you would just tap on it and make a Whatsapp call, or video call, or FaceTime call audio or video, or just message that contact. There are other functions this app lacks that the iPhone has with its stock Phone and Contacts app provides to save you time. I will be asking for a refund from Apple. This I believe is the first time I will ask for a refund for any app I have ever paid for in my 7 years of being an App Store customer.

Thanks for the feedback here. Regarding favourites, you can swipe the contact name to the right to see four quick actions. Hope to see you back one day!


Helps protect my privacy

Been using the app for the past 24 hours and it is a game changer for me because of my specific use case (which I think is probably applicable to a lot of people). I am a criminal defense attorney. I don’t like my clients having my personal cell phone number for obvious reasons. I use ringcentral as my business line. Biggest problem has been that I have not saved my client’s in my phone contacts due to fear I may accidentally call them from my personal number. But with this app I can set up a client contact with only the Ringcentral button so I don’t risk calling from my cell number. One complaint - it is being pretty buggy when I try to save the contact or edit details, sometimes crashing several times. One request - could you please make it so we can have different default quick action sets by group? That way I could have call from my cell or FaceTime in friend’s group and only have call from ringcentral if the contact is in my client group. Thanks.

Useful, but some bizarre/annoying design choices

This is a pretty useful app, it works well to add a new contact with some pasted information since you can just add everything inline and Cardhop parses our the details.

One thing I hate: I have birthday notifications on, it shows a tiny photo of the contact, a Haptic Touch or 3D Press expands the card but removes the contact photo entirely and replaces it with an animated cake. I don’t need to see (the same) animated cake (every day), I know it’s that person’s birthday. I *would* however like to see a larger version of that person’s contact photo. It’s emblematic of how this developer’s version of “pretty” animations overtakes functionality, and they appear (based on an email exchange) to be set in stone about the 3D Touch birthday animation.

The word that most describes this developer is stubborn, and unwilling to consider how their software is actually used. It’s a shame, because there’s much more potential for this app imo, but they’re holding it back by sticking with how it functioned in the 1.0 release.
