Meeting new people can be intimidating, especially for wallflowers such as myself. I’ve got the gift of gab, but I can only really open up after I’ve known you for a few decades or so. Until then, my social anxiety keeps my lips shut and my feet firmly planted in the corner at parties, making friends with the host’s cat.
Sometimes being taciturn just isn’t an option, especially if I’m meeting a new business contact. I have to find my voice somewhere, but how can I break the ice and put myself at ease? Maybe Refresh can help. It finds all of your new contacts for you and gives you lots of tidbits of info, so you’re never going into a meeting unprepared again. (more…)
I did a post a little while back on an application that replaced the Address Book on your iPhone, and it seems that these 3rd party apps are starting to gain more and more traction. Developers are starting to see the need for a better address book and are doing something about it. I, for one, love Apple and its products and software, and I am really hoping that these apps push them to make the iPhone OS better sooner rather than later.
In this review, I look at an application that is almost the complete opposite of the one I recently reviewed. It is called Buzz Contacts, and it is developed by the same guys that brought you Agenda, a great looking calendar application for the iPhone. (more…)
When it first came out, I loved Path. I thought that the concept for having a simple and clean social network made up of the people that I truly call my friends was awesome, and I appreciated the 50-person limit. Then Path 2 came out, and I loved the interface, how it worked and everything about it. Path 2 changed the game.
Then we find out the other day that Path would upload the user’s entire address book to their servers, making what is my personal information now the property of someone I didn’t authorize to do so. Turns out that Hipster does the same thing. Although Path has since apologized and deleted all of that data from their servers, the damage is done. Fact is, if we’re going to work with an app, we need assurance that they developer will treat our data correctly. But why is it so important for us to believe a person who’s making an app?
It comes down to trust.
I’ve talked a little bit about how single-function apps help me manage the different aspects of my life, and how utilities can be extremely beneficial and excel at one key aspect. Dialvetica is one of those apps.
What can Dialvetica do for you? Well, that depends on what you want it to do. The possibilities aren’t quite endless, but this utility is one of the favorite apps that I’ve added to my iPhone. Why? Read on and find out.
In this Quick Look, we’re highlighting Duplicate Remover and Merger Pro. The developer describes Duplicate Remover and Merger Pro as a way to get rid of duplicate contacts to save time and avoid confusion with duplicate entries, as well as improve your Address Book performance.
Duplicate Remover and Merger PRO will remove and merge duplicate contacts in just one tap. Even if thousands of duplicates are spotted, they all will be thoroughly analyzed and removed. All identical duplicates will be deleted and similar ones will be merged automatically.

Sometimes we focus so much on how well the iPhone browses the web, plays games or keeps us on task that we forget that it’s also a phone! As such, shouldn’t there be a few cool apps dedicated to making phone calls?
You’re in luck, today we’ll show you some apps that are aimed at helping you quickly dial friends and family in some really interesting and useful ways.
In this Quick Look, we’re highlighting Berokyo. The developer describes Berokyo as follows: Berokyo lets you organize all your favorite and frequently used contacts, documents, digital media and virtually any type of file into one or more customizable and beautiful bookshelves; and once there, they can be quickly accessed, copied, shared, viewed, played, and so much more. Berokyo definitely helps you improve your organization and productivity on the go!

So you know a few people. Okay, you know a lot of people. And you need to keep in touch with these people. Of course, your iPhone has a built-in Contacts app, but isn’t there anything a little more friendly and fun?
Of course there is! It’s Groups – drag and drop contact management. Groups is really just a pair of rose-tinted glasses for the built-in contacts app. When you update contact information in one, you’ll see those changes in the other. For me this works nicely, because the Contacts app syncs with Google Contacts.
In this review, I’ll be a taking a look at the interface of Groups and investigating the functionality on offer.
