iOS Simpler Contacts Pro features

I have been looking for a long time to find an iOS app for managing contacts on iPhone and iPad because the native iOS Contacts app has only limited managing functions. Although there are many third-party apps on iOS 8 to easily add, move and remove contacts, most of them just allow to manage iCloud contact groups. This means other contacts account like Google’s Gmail contacts or other third-party contacts are not supported.

The only acceptable app I found after hours of searching and testing is the iOS universal app ‘Simpler Contacts – Pro‘ by Yoni Tserruya. Simpler Contacts Pro got full access to all contacts of the native iOS contacts app including Facebook contacts. For example, Exchange, Gmail, Gmail Google apps (Google Contacts) and other accounts are supported. Further more, simpler Contacts comes along in iOS 8 design.

The features of Simpler Contacts Pro are:

  • Main features:
    • Merge all duplicate contacts with one tap!
    • Save your own contact groups
    • Instantly send group text & email
    • One tap to backup your contacts!
    • Quickly find the contacts you need
  • Simply merge duplicate contacts
    • Merge all duplicate contacts with one tap!
    • Find & merge contacts with similar names.
    • Find & Merge contacts with duplicate phone or email.
  • Cleanup
    • Remove contacts without name
    • Remove contacts without phone & email
  • Backup
    • One tap to backup your contacts! Automated backup as monthly or yearly in-app purchase offered.
    • Quickly export your backups to Dropbox, Google Drive, Email
    • Move contacts between accounts (Exchange, iCloud, Local Address Book)
  • Groups
    • Save your own contact groups
    • Instantly send group text & email
    • Add, move or copy a contact to a group
    • Remove a contact from a group without completely deleting the contact from an account
  • Favourites

    • One tap to Voice Call / Text / FaceTime / Email
  • Smart filters
    • Quickly find the contacts you need
    • Filter contacts by Company & Job title
    • Filter contacts by upcoming birthday & creation date

Review summary: 4.5 of 5 Stars  

So far, Simpler Contacts Pro is the best iOS app for managing address books on iPhone and iPad in my point of view. The sole point for improvement is the ‘Quick Search’ function for ‘All Contacts’: If you search for a contact and found it, you can edit the contact information, but you cannot manage the contact (add, move, copy, remove). For that, you have to go to ‘Accounts’ for managing the contact. What contacts managing app are you using? Let us know and comment!

Stay tuned! 😉

    I haven’t used this application for a while. Today, when I tried to send a group text, I noticed all the groups were listed, but there were no members listed. The group names were pink instead of blue. Any suggestions on how to retrieve the names of the people and their e-mail addresses?
