Okay, so it seems like there’s always some hot new way to organize your contacts popping up, and these new methods generally turn out to be so much hype.  The developers of my facecard, however, actually have a pretty novel new set up. 



VIPorbit bring business class contact management to the iPhone

Remember "ACT!" the database program?  Back in the late 1980's and 1990's, DOS and Windows users (like me) relied on it for contact management long before Salesforce.com ever existed.  Well, you can thank Mike Muhney, one of the creators of ACT, for that powerful software.  Now, Muhney brings a similar set of features to the iPhone world, where such capabilities are even more valuable, in an app called VIPorbit.

If you are looking for a new contacts app with more robust features than the standard iDevice app from Apple, then check out the 'ContactsXL 3 + Sync With Facebook' app. This is a contact and management app brought to you by developer Jonathan Teboul. It offers various features and customization option that the standard app doesn't and is a good replacement for it.



How do I create or edit a contact?

There are two main ways to enter contacts into your device. You can enter them manually on your iOS device, one-by-one, or you can sync them from a computer or online contact manager. Syncing them from another source is probably the easiest and most efficient way to do it.

Get Kik'd Into Gear This Holiday!

            As an iPhone user, have you ever wondered what its like to BBM?  Well, whether you have or haven’t, “kik” is an application that allows you to have that experience.  Rising in popularity among iPhone users in my circle, kik has its advantages. 

            Instead of having a pin, one operates kik under a username.  Upon downloading kik, the application prompts the user to create a username that they will not forget and that is easy to share with friends, family, coworkers and the like.  Once doing so, you are ready to go. 



This Contact Manager is a Keeper

This contacts manager is an app that will stay for ever on your iPhone once you try it. After you open it up you will see that the developer was thinking about the you and what you'd want to do.

Within each contact you can e-mail or text with one tap....and it will keep a history of them within that contact. So if you want to know, or document, when you sent a text, e-mail or phone call to a particular person, all you have to do is pull them up and look under the History tab.
