Nowadays, there’s no such thing as being on just one social network. You don’t just have a Facebook. You have a Facebook, a Twitter, a LinkedIn, maybe even a MySpace. But that’s just to name a few. There are people that have accounts on far more networks, myself included. It can be tough keeping track of all your contacts from all your different networks. So wouldn’t it be great if you could see all your contacts in one spot? Yes, you can always insert each contact into your phone book, but if you have more than say fifty contacts, and chances are if you’re on two or more different networks you have plenty more, it can be such a pain. And who has time for that anyways? If only there was an app that could somehow solve this problem. Oh wait, there is, it’s called AllSync, and it’s one of the most useful apps I’ve ever come by.
I’ve been looking for an app like this for a long time. I’ve tried out a couple others that claimed to do the same thing, but they never quite lived up to my expectations. With AllSync, that all changed. AllSync takes all your contacts, from all your different networks, and puts them into your phone book for you. In other words, by using this app, you’ll save yourself hours of tedious typing. And like I said, AllSync’s the best. First off, it has the longest list of compatible networks out of all the other ‘contact sync’ apps. In all the other apps that I’ve found, you can connect your Facebook, and maybe one other network, but that’s it. Here, you can connect your Facebook, Twitter, Orkut, Google, Yahoo, LinkedIn, MySpace, Netlog, and Plaxo. Find me another app that can connect with all of those. I dare you.
Once you’ve connected to your accounts, it shows you a complete list of all your contacts, and you can choose to either sync all of them, or pick specific ones. But probably the greatest thing in the app is the amount of data it puts into your phone book. Obviously it adds the contacts name, number, and email, but it also adds their photo, address, company, job title, notes, IM’s, website links, and anniversaries. They really left nothing out. There is nothing more that you could possibly want from a ‘contact sync’ app. What’s that? You want a link to the contacts Facebook and Twitter? Well they covered that too, buddy. When I say they left nothing out, I mean it.
Whether you’re on tens of social networks, or you just stick to your basic two or three, AllSync is a must have for any iPhone owner. If there’s one app that will save you time, it’s AllSync. I know, I’m a sucker for time-saving apps. But trust me, this ones really worth it. I’m usually hesitant when it comes to apps like these, because I’ve been failed time and time again. But now, I can honestly say that I’ve found the perfect ‘contact sync’ app.
