    I am in person-to-person sales, and this app is absolutely essential to backload contacts from my phone onto Gmail and then from Gmail onto any other devices like tablet, desktop etc.

    Love having all of my contacts in 1 spot and the ablility to access them from my iphone. Easy to setup and use!
  • Gotcha

    By Txjeff1
    Buried in the fine print is that the free version of this app only works for 40 contacts. After install, they zing you with that and demand money for any real use. Deleted right away.
  • Experience a fully functional & well oiled contact database

    By KushDad72
    Or for the first time enjoy all of the benefits associated with a properly functioning contact database. Case Study - the number of dup's in my iCloud database had grown out of control to the point of where even a simple name search would freeze my phone after only inputting the first letter of someone's surname so substantially it could often takes 10 seconds for available RAM to accept the entry of a 2nd letter; then my address book became corrupted exhibiting an assortment of strange occurrences - I had a random email address stealthily become part of more than 180 out 11,000 contacts, further my notes field in more than 500 records was mysteriously filled with data from other contact records along with info that I had no idea where it came from. So after trying a slew of utilities that never solved these problems, a couple years ago when I was in the midst of these problems a friend in IT recommended Contact Sync by Playa Apps. Based on what is likely the best iOS architecture that exists, Google Contacts, Contact Sync by Playa starts and ends with a solution which almost completely relies on Google Contacts architecture for an almost instantaneously repair and elimination of every problem mentioned above altogether along with merging and removing duplicate record in no time, this problems also spilled over into my Mac's contact database as well and Contact Sync by Playa not only fixed my iOS based problem but it also fixed my Mac's address book troubles simultaneously. Give it a try you'll love it. Jon K - Phila
  • Absolutely perfect

    By Papinet
    That app does exactly what it is supposed to do and does it well. You will not regret one cent of what you pay for. Read carefully and follow strictly instructions before taking action as start can look a bit complex but after, you can forget it, it runs by itself.
  • Simply does its job

    No complaints. Everything has worked great so far. $3 and I never have to worry about my contacts again.
  • Great App

    By Jmsoodjinda
    Works like a charm every time I use it... like all the warnings before major changes are made. sometimes duplicates are made but it warns me of my own mistakes that makes them or deletions.
  • It works as expected
