You’re on your way to home from office and suddenly on the road; you walk into one of your college classmates. After a few minutes of talking, you finally exchange numbers and come back. After that, you never call back that person again. It happens! The exchange of numbers was nothing more than a farewell gesture. But you never delete that number hoping that someday you might have to call that person or if someday that person calls you and you don’t recognize him, you’d be embarrassed. But whatever is the reason, you end up with a long address book and it creates a problem when you’re looking for a number that you frequently use but can’t find it. Moreover, the address book seems to be cut-off from the rest of the phone. If there could be a more seamless integration of the two, wouldn’t it be better?
So here we have the latest iOS app called Contacts Pad that has been developed by Think Code Release Ltd. The app is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch and iPad and requires iOS 7.0 or any later version of the OS. This app has also been optimized for iPhone 5, iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.
Contacts Pad keeps all your favorite and frequently used contacts at one place making sure you never have to scroll through the complete-long list of contacts; you can just skip it. But it’s not only about sorting out your contacts; there’s more to it. What we can generally find in our contact book when we tap on a number is the number itself, email address and that’s it! So our address book is currently limited to the phone number only. Let’s expand it!
What Contacts Pad does is that it integrates all communication networks including WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger, Skype, Twitter, Mail, Messages, Facebook and FaceTime into your address book. So the next time you open your address book, you’ll find all these options embedded inside. But there’s still something missing and I know what it is – A Widget.
Here a widget doesn’t mean another app glued to your home screen because it adds nothing to the present scenario. But there is a strong need of a shortcut to our favorite contacts and that is where this widget comes to rescue. Now pulling the notifications tray downward, you can access your favorite contacts even when the screen is locked. This contact-panel is customizable where you can add multiple contacts as well as multiple platforms. So if you chat with a particular person on WhatsApp only, you can just keep that feature on the front-wall and leave the rest.
We loved the design of Contacts Pad app. They’ve very beautifully integrated style with an intuitive user-friendly interface that’s commendable. You can choose your own style and with almost every feature customizable, your priorities will always be on the top of the list.
The app is available for $0.99 in the App Store.
Very nice app. I’ve been using it for a couple of months and now I use it all the time. I can’t live without it.
