This week MacSparky is sponsored by Interact from Agile Tortoise. Interact is a replacement for the iOS contacts application and it is so much better. The native iPad and iPhone contacts application is feature limited and, as a result, difficult to use for any serious work.
That is not the case with Interact. This app gives you the full suite of contact management tools including the ability to manage groups, communicate with friends and family, and use your contacts with third-party applications.
Everything connects to the native contacts database so any work you do in Interact shows up everywhere else.
One of my favorite features is the Scratchpad. You can paste someone’s contact information in the Interact Scratchpad in just about any format and Interact will figure out what is what and automatically put the appropriate information in the appropriate fields for you. There’s even an extension so you can use this from other applications. The below video shows off the Interact Scratchpad.
Interact is the result of a very clever programmer asking the question, “What if we made an iOS contacts application right?” I’ve been using Interact since the product first launched and it has absolutely replaced Contacts on my iPhone and iPad.
Best of all, for this week, you can get Interact for 20% off.
