Smartr Contacts not just lets you sort your contacts easily, but also creates rich profiles with integrated information from social networks and your mails.
On the first launch, it asks you to create a free Xobni account and add your Gmail, Yahoo or Outlook account (multiple accounts from each provider can be added). Next, you are required to add your social network accounts (LinkedIn, Facebook & Twitter). Once done, the app then takes a couple of minutes to integrate information about your contacts from the various synced accounts and shows the number of contacts that it is updating.
Once done, the homescreen shows a search bar on top and an update windows that shows recent posts from your social networks (updated every time you go back to the homescreen). Instead of scrolling through a long contact list, you are required to search for the contact that you are looking for.
The trouble is that each time you search; the app downloads updated images from the Internet leading to added data costs. Also, when you tap on the search box, the app shows your most interacted contacts in a list – saves time.
The app integrates your existing iPhone contact list information, recent email conversations and social network updates. The profile tab shows you the phone number, email address and twitter ID on the first page, with options to call, SMS, mail or tweet. The history tab of the profile shows a histogram of your interaction activity. The third tab – common, displays the various common contacts between you two and allows you to view their profile and contact them.
You can edit information about the contact from within the app as well and even hide the contact from the contact list if required. The only gripe here is that the there is no direct way of adding a new contact to your list from within the app.
You can also push the contacts to cloud for an online backup. Although the contacts are automatically backed up the first time, you need to manually push contacts again to the cloud when you add/update anything.
All in all, the app is great to stay updated in regards to your contacts and to search through them effectively.
