Multi Edit – Contacts Manager: Written iPhone App Review
We’ve owned an iPhone since the first day they came out. We’re not saying that to brag, but rather to point out that we’ve been in this game for a long time, and have been enjoying it quite a lot. However, we have not always enjoyed the default, native contact application. There are a couple of reasons for this, but now that we have today’s app review Multi Edit – Contacts Manager to handle our needs, they hardly matter. The app, from developer Yoni Tserruya, is a seamless replacement, and one of the best solutions we’ve seen in a long time. For our full review, you need only to check below beyond the break!
Concept and Functionality
As stated, Multi Edit doesn’t want to be just another contact editing application on your iPhone. Rather, it wants to wholly replace what you’ve got going on. It does this primarily by convincing you of its merits. What do we mean? Well, let us explain.
When you first boot up the application, it will walk you through all that it has to offer in a seamless manner. First, it’ll want to access your Facebook contacts. Then, it’ll offer to backup your whole cache. From there, it’ll look for duplicate contacts—and it will find them. If you’re like us, you have a load of these, and are very grateful for any opportunity to clean out the mess a bit. The app even finds those contacts whose names are similar, and are duplicates by a letter omission. This is sheer brilliance, and once it’s been accomplished, you can then setup your personal groups for easy dialing, emailing, or anything else. Did we mention that the app walks you through this? You hardly have to lift a finger and when all is done, you can simply replace your stock app with Multi Edit, and the hard work is over.
Graphics and Interface
Here’s the real kicker with Multi Edit, though: The application is freaking gorgeous. It offers an entire host of subtly included items that are designed to make it a total replacement for the native offering. For instance, the app will tell you via the sliding sidebar when some contact information is missing. It’ll also pony up any service of function you want in a matter of seconds thanks to the tabbed navigation bar along the bottom of the app. It’s effortless, incredibly good looking, and chaste design to the core. Really solid stuff.
We’ll spin it to you this way: Multi Edit costs two bucks, and it is way worth that two dollars. Trust us on this one, you’re going to want to use Multi Edit after you’ve gone through the setup procedure, and we’d be surprised if you didn’t find yourself forgetting your old ways almost immediately. It’s that good. Go ahead and get it, then conquer your contacts!
Multi Edit – Contacts Manager requires iOS 5.0 or later and is compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch. This app is optimized for iPhone 5. A small expedite fee was paid to speed up the publication of this review.
