Connect app review: a modern take on an address book



The days of an old-school address book made from paper are in the past thanks to the new and modern options available today. The Connect app can be used on your iPod touch, iPad, and iPhone and provides users with a way to find contact information from their social networks. Most of our socializing nowadays seems to be through social networks anyway so why shouldn't this be where your contact information is sourced from? Access your contacts that are on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Google, Foursquare, or LinkedIn.

Today's Address Book

Nowadays the address book people use is much different than it used to be; in fact, instead of being filled with addresses our contact list seems to be more about ways to connect through social networking. The Connect app has been created for those looking for a way to communicate in a modern and simple way. The app makes it possible to find your family, friends, and co-workers quickly and easily by using their data from Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, Google, Foursquare, Instagram, or your phone contact list. The app provides you with access to their most current posts and updates, the most recent location they have been, and anything else they have posted on their social media profiles.

In its last update there were push notifications added for iOS 8 plus the app now supports 64-bit. It currently has 4.5 out of five stars from users who enjoy how easy it makes life and how well-connected they can stay with their contacts.

Timesaving Tools and Features

The Connect app is all about making it easy to find and connect with your contacts making it a real time-saver. Instead of going through all your social media apps you can find everything in one spot quickly and easily. Use this app to send messages from, email, text, and call. You can even see what friends are nearby with the friend finder that shows where a particular friend may be, or by city. If one of your contacts from out of town happens to be in town you'll get an alert giving you the perfect opportunity to meet up. What's cool is that you can alert your social network where you are and for how long, making it possible to always find a friend nearby to chill out with.
