Importing Contacts Apps Can Help Your Memory

Last updated:

Before smartphones, you would normally have a contact and address book you would have to keep in a safe spot. You would have to write every new contact in there, and maybe even a note to remember who they are. Or, you would have a Rolodex alphabetically listed so you could keep track of all your contacts, personal and professional. Luckily, smartphones and apps make it way more efficient and easy. Let's check out how.

No matter whether you're in school, working a professional job, or new to a city, chances are you are going to meet a lot of new people. And, you will want to store your new contact information with your existing contacts. Luckily for you, your phone can help you tackle this everyday occurrence. You can backup your list on apps like Contacts, which allows you to access your contact list on any and all devices. This way, if you're out meeting a new client or friend, you can add their information to your app, and it will automatically update on your tablet or home computer. 

There are so many needs for updated contact information you can easily access. From clients to service providers, and even to old friends you haven't called in a while. Having your contacts readily available saves a lot of time and energy. 

Now, of course, with technology advancing so quickly, your smartphone could turn into an old relic in a matter of years. And, although it has been good to you, you will want to trade it in for a newer, faster, and more efficient model. It used to be difficult to take all the wealth of information you had on an old phone and transfer to your new one, but luckily apps turned it into a seamless process that takes no time at all. The app Transfer Contacts allows you to transfer all your contacts within seconds. 

Yet, if you want to take the majority of your contact list, but get rid of some old information you no longer need, the app allows you to pick and choose which contacts you want transferring over. Another pain that might come up in your contacts is duplicate contacts. You may at one time forgotten you had put your vet's information in your list or added someone twice when they changed their number. No worries, the app will help you identify duplicate contacts, and let you either combine them or trash one. Cleaning your contact list is much easier with you have software combing through it for you. 

Another resourceful and helpful feature of contact list apps is the ability to store all your information in the cloud. Not only does this feature allow you to sync your contacts with every device, but if the unfortunate event of your smartphone being lost, broken, or stolen, you can easily buy a new one and restore your list in no time.

The cloud allows you to never lose any contacts no matter what happens to your devices. This can come in handy if you are away from your laptop or smartphone and need to access a person in your contacts. You can use any device and login to the cloud to get any information you have stored there, including your contacts. 

If you're running a business, chances are you have a lot of contacts to keep up with. Manufacturers, clients, distributors, and even employees. The list can be long enough that you need to be able to categorize them. Also, it's not uncommon for a business owner to have an excel spreadsheet of their contacts, sometimes including more information than just numbers. You may also need tax information, addresses, point of contact person, and their company name and position.  

Again, contact apps make it easy to import this information onto your phone, so you never have to call work to get contact information. If you have an Android device, you can download ContactsManager to import files, and if you have an iPhone you can look into apps like Contacts Backup + Transfer. 

Nowadays, contact apps do much more than store your contacts, they can also help you make them. Getting a great job or gaining new clients is all about networking and with apps like Shapr, you don't have to meet someone in person to connect. This app allows you to connect with people in your industry filtered by location and level of seniority. 

Obviously, most people are already on networking social platforms like Linkedin, but you can't underestimate the importance of all the information you can access there as well as contact information about new business looking seeking professionals. 

With apps, you can access a variety of tools that allow you to be successful in any business by connecting you with your industry, potential clients, or potential employers. 

Now that you know some tips on what to look for in a contact app, check out our list of the top 10 contact apps to see if any will do the job. Whether you're a fundraising organizer with loads of organizations and political contacts, or a student meeting new people for your first year of university, contact apps can help you keep in touch with the people that matter.

  • Back up your contacts & access them anywhere

    • So helpful when switching devices. I sync all my data to Google, and love how easy all their products are to use. When you download it, one of the permissions requested is make and manage phone calls, and I was a little shocked at that. But it doesn't do that at all, so don't worry. I use it on all my devices instead of the regular phone app. I absolutely love Google Contacts.
