Is there anyone who doesn’t use Facebook? I don’t think so! The social networking giant made such a deep impact on people worldwide. Of course I am a Facebook fan and I used to spend lots of hours inside it. Especially when Faceebook for iPhone works pretty decent, I got ContactsXL 3 + Sync With Facebook app for iPhone to test and this is what I was exactly looking for!
This is a contact app that can sync your Facebook contacts thereby managing them in an efficient way. Don’t think the main usage of this app is just syncing Facebook contacts and managing them. This is basically a contact app that can manage your iPhone contacts as well.
ContactsXL comes with a lot of features like, you can easily create groups, retrieve pictures and information from your Facebook friends, quickly send group SMS or email, get notified of birthdays, search and sort your contacts by any field, import Facebook friends, create smart groups, view the contact photos next to their names in the lists, browse your contacts with Coverflow, and many other things!
You can group your contacts by setting a particular phrase. Once you have set it all the contacts under that phrase are grouped together. Email and messaging is pretty easy with the app, which is the best part from many other competitors. With birthday reminders you are always in touch with your dear one’s and wish them without any fails. I like the Coverflow feature much as it allows you to just slide through the photos easily and browse the contacts via them.
Sync with Facebook is just a part of the app and that works pretty decent as I said initially. You can see all your Facebook friends statuses in a single list in the app. Switching between the contacts is also quick without any suffers. There is search option, so you can search for a particular contact and sort them with any fields.
Smart T9 Dialer is another excellent feature in ContactsXL. You won’t stopped dialing a number using this keypad as it suggests the number very clearly if you start them. This is a well-developed app from Jonathan Teboul and I would highly recommend it. But I have to say the negative part as well. There is not much, but the design and interface can be little better that can take this app to higher levels.
ContactsXL 3 + Sync With Facebook is available on the app store for $0.99
