Discover, organize, and deepen all your personal and professional relationships with Clay, a beautiful and intuitive contacts app, lightweight CRM, and more.

People make us laugh, challenge us to improve, support us when things are tough, and celebrate with us once they get better. But staying in touch with the people that matter thoughtfully is difficult.

Before Clay, being thoughtful required relying on your memory as well as a mix of spreadsheets, notecards, address books, and other tools. In addition to being difficult to manage, this approach let important relationships, moments, and context fall through the cracks. That’s why we created Clay—a stunning, intuitive, and private home for your relationships, built automatically from your email, calendar, address book, LinkedIn, Twitter, and iMessage.

Clay helps you show up informed by creating and automatically updating beautiful cards for each of your contacts with context such as profile photos, bios, education and work history, location, and social profiles. In addition, you can use powerful features such as natural-language search, dictation and note taking, reminders, birthday notifications, news articles about people you know, reconnection cadences, and more to deepen your relationships over time.


Clay is the fastest and most powerful way to take notes before, during, and after a conversation with someone. Remember kids names, vacation itineraries, and that last article you read that you’ve been dying to share, all by writing a note on someone's card.


Set a reminder for particular days—like a birthday or anniversary—or pick a reconnection cadence so you don’t lose touch.


Dinner party faves? Book club? High school friends? Easily add people to groups so you can organize people however makes sense to you. Then, use those groups to make organizing events easier and faster.


You remember people in different ways—where you last met to catch up, when you last saw them, what you talked about. Just type what comes to mind and Clay will find the right person or group of people based on your notes and their profile, all in milliseconds. It's the easiest, most powerful person search available anywhere.


Never miss a beat with Home—a powerful, high-level view of all the updates from your entire network. Be the first to congratulate someone when they change jobs or when they're mentioned in thousands of top print and digital publications.

Wow, this is a gorgeous app! Was able to sync all my social media profiles and contacts from multiple places. It has already saved me time and frustration from checking in and staying in touch with my network without having to bounce around a zillion apps

Pretty but useless and questionable privacy

Is it a nice looking app? Yes. Does it do anything useful? As far as I can tell in 15 minutes of exploring, no. It seems the same as Dex or CRM apps but maybe some nifty iMessage integration if you use the Mac app. To make matters worse, you can’t really tell what this app’s features are clearly from the App Store listing or onboarding. It’s not until after they force you to upload contacts, connect accounts etc that it becomes clear and in my case the answer is it’s not useful. Then to add insult to injury, it DOESNT HAVE A WAY TO DELETE YOUR ACCOUNT in any automated form as required by CCPA & GDPR. Instead you must manually email them which you can’t do easily you signed up using Apple ID and a scrambled email. TLDR: think twice before making an account here.

Nice idea, poor execution

The glossy App Store teaser images look nice and sell a promising concept well, but the details in implementation are rough.

The look and feel of the app is over designed and doesn’t always implement expected interaction patterns on iOS which can be jarring. There are multiple views where basic dismissal patterns aren’t used.

The contact importer doesn’t recognize that their backend may fail, so in order to start over, you have to “delete” your contacts in order to try again. For someone who’s more invested in this application, that’s a bit nerve wracking to try and workaround the flakey backend.
