Facebook makes many aspects of your life more convenient. It’s an easy way to stay in touch, it reminds you of your friends’ birthdays, and it can sync your contacts and Facebook events to your smartphone. And before you know it, you depend on Facebook. Or maybe other people depend on being friends with you on Facebook. Part of this dependence is in Facebook stepping in to manage your contacts.
Most people in your Contacts list are more than just a number to you. You’re friends with them on Facebook. You follow them on Twitter. You have a LinkedIn connection.
Being at the right place at the right time is often squarely tied to luck. While it’s true that you can’t be everywhere, it is also true that nurturing your professional relationships could help you hear the knock when opportunity comes calling. The little things done right there can help to foster career growth. We tend to sometimes use social media too casually. Tuned just right, it is a minimal effort tool for managing our relationships en masse.
Android’s default Contacts app is one of the things phone makers seem to relish customizing. Maybe because it’s a straightforward app, or maybe because you’ll be using it every day and they want their style constantly on your mind. The good news is that this being Android, there are numerous alternative contact apps to choose from. Today I’m here to show you two apps vying to replace or augment the Contacts app you’re currently using: One is utterly unique, while the other is time-tested and more conventional.
