Simpler helps you tidy up your address book.

Anyone who uses the Contacts app.

FREE ($3.99) For a limited time FREE ($3.99) For a limited time
Why we picked this?

If you're like most of iPhone users, you enter a new contact when needed and never think much more about the entry from there. However, on occasion, you may realize, somehow, your address book contains two entries of the same person or lacks a photo so that you can easily recognize who it is. These instances are when Simpler can bring a huge relief. Once authorized to access your current address book, Simpler identifies any redundant people and offers to merge the entries as well as can recognize if an entry is missing a portrait photo, then offers one up from another source, such as Facebook -- after asking for access permission, of course. Lastly, you can further protect your data or share it in bulk by allowing Simpler to export or backup the contacts database, either to Simpler’s secure servers, another popular cloud service, or just transferring the data using email.

You add and delete contacts here and there but never review your address book.

You have only a few contacts, or are completely comfortable with Apple's included Contacts features.
