Contact management is a disaster, and it doesn’t matter if your on iOS, Android, Mac or Windows. If you’ve been around the digital world for a while, you’ve probably amassed a huge amount of contacts which are duplicates or just contain false information. What’s worse is that the problem just keeps getting worse like some kind of twisted snowball of falsehood.
Why does this happen? Truth is that it’s a mystery even to some of the world’s brightest minds. The simplest explanation seems to be that it’s the fault of services like Google’s which messed up syncing whenever a change was made to an existing contact preferring to play it safe by duplicating a contact rather than assuming that the new information you just input belonged to an existing contact. If you’ve been searching for a way to kill off the duplicates, then you need look no further than FullContact.
FullContact works by linking all of your accounts like Google, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and so on. It then pulls in your Google, iCloud, and phone contacts and institutes a sort of two-way contact so that everything is harmonized. Setup is super easy and FullContact works with a freemium model so you really have nothing to lose by trying it except for a very messy contact list.
