phonetrait app review: contact people faster than ever before



If you're like most people then you probably have a list of contacts that you speak to on a regular basis so here's a way to sort through your contacts and get a hold of those "favorites" in a quick and easy way. The phonetrait app can be used on your iPod touch, iPad, and iPhone and actually sorts through your contacts right on the start screen. The sorting depends entirely on how recently you contacted them so that those you speak to often will always be close at hand.

Let phonetrait Do the Work

Instead of going through all your contacts as you try to find and sort your favorites you can leave it to phonetrait. This app will do all the work for you and find your top three contacts. These are the contacts that you call the most often. Your other contacts will show up as recently called contacts. Most likely you'll agree with who phonetrait picks as your top three but if you want you can always manually add a favorite. By doing this that particular favorite will always show up, making it quick and easy to reach them at all times.

The best iPad apps for phone calls

There are a few in-app purchases available, all of which are priced at $0.99. The app requires iOS 7.0 or later to use and it doesn't have a customer rating or customer comments at this time. In its last update there were a number of performance updates, but fixes, and the app now supports iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.

A Simple User Experience

What stands out about the phonetrait app is just how easy it is to use. Not only will you be able to reach your top contacts faster than ever before but the tools offered in the app are all user-friendly. All you have to do is tap on the picture of the contact you wish to email, call, send a text message to, Facetime with, or tweet. At the same time if you just tap on the picture you'll get a quick overview of the contact. For some people being able to view a photo of the contact is much more effective than just a name. There are default photos that can be used if you don't happen to have a picture of the contact.

Additional features include the fact the app integrates with your address book, you can add notes to contacts (as well as websites and addresses), and you can choose how you want their name to appear as some people you may prefer to use a nickname for.
