Smart Time-Saving Solutions In 2021: Best Contacts Apps

We understand that keeping in touch with your partners and loved ones is a crucial aim for your business and personal life. As the year 2020 has been trying out our ability to adapt to the ever-changing environment, networking has never been so important.

Many contact apps are being released every day. As of this, it can be tricky to choose a service that would not only best suit your needs, but also be reliable and trustworthy. In a world that is changing by the minute, it is good to know that there are still providers that we can rely on.

So, ladies and gentlemen, we have gathered a list of the best contact apps for you to use in 2021.

Google Contacts

For a long time, users have found Google Contacts to be one of the most practical and reliable tools for managing contact networks. Its lean and seamless design is a joy to use and not only because it looks good; it is also easy to navigate. Both the mobile app and the web application come with a full complement of features. Here are a few of our favorites:

  • Integration with all Google Apps
  • Merge and Fix function
  • Easy sorting into groups
  • Extensive search ability
  • Keyboard shortcuts

Google Contacts ensures that you will never again be afraid of losing any of your contact information when moving from device to device. Sync and backup functions will keep you up to date with your accounts. You will be able to transfer contacts from other apps too, connecting numbers to email and social media accounts, all under one name.

One of the major issues with other contact apps is that they do not offer features to help you organize your address book in an efficient manner. With Google Contacts it will be easy to de-clutter your address book by merging contacts. Try the Merge and Fix function, which allows you to combine various information and add useful details in an orderly fashion.

Pricing: Free, included with a Google account.

iCloud Contacts

If you are using iCloud as your main cloud storage, then you will probably use iCloud Contacts as your main contact management app. Apple’s cutting-edge design has never been too far from the most innovative features. Here are a few that make iCloud Contacts one of the best contact apps in 2021:

  • Synchronization across all Apple devices
  • Compatibility with Google accounts
  • Possibility to share contacts  
  • FaceTime feature
  • Siri integration

iCloud’s advanced cloud-based service enables syncing contacts and other data with your other Apple devices and accounts. It works with your Google account and even Windows too. Transferring of information is smooth and easy to control. And all the magic happens in the background, without interrupting your work.

Communicate using FaceTime, which you can access from Contacts App. The option to use FaceTime will appear automatically in those contacts that also have an Apple device. FaceTime is also compatible with the Favorites feature – you can easily place a call through the Favorites widget. All to spend less time searching for your contacts and more time connecting.  

On top of all this, you can use Siri to call someone or leave a message. Have in mind that if you live in a non-English speaking country, Siri can have issues with recognizing names. To avoid this issue, you can give nicknames to your contacts which Siri would understand (like mom, dad, and so on).

Pricing: Free, but available with Apple devices only.

Microsoft Office 365 Contacts

Last but not least is the Microsoft Office 365 Contacts, available under People to all users in Office 365. Application’s connectivity and sharing capabilities have improved greatly over the last two years revealing its most competitive features. Which of them are our most favorite?

  • Visible for users on Outlook and mobile devices
  • Store contacts from Google or iCloud
  • Easy organization with contact folders
  • Several address books available
  • Sharing of contact lists

One of the most distinctive advantages of this app is that it’s accessible to all users in Microsoft Outlook, Outlook on the Web, and mobile devices. In this way you will be able to track your contacts without worry. In case you need to move your contacts to Outlook by hand, do it through Outlook Import/Export wizard which makes it easy to import contacts from a CSV file.

A single view of contacts from all your Google and iCloud accounts is also available. From here you will be able to keep track of all messages and meetings between your favorite people.  

When creating and managing your address book you will have many options: from grouping and linking separate contacts, to sharing them with the people in your organization. Another feature of this app is that it lets you use several address books, depending on your business or personal needs. In this way, you will manage both your business and personal life from only one account. Be in full control of your network.  

Pricing: Free, compatible with Windows operating system
