Ever since the invent of Android and successive progress in its versions, the amount of work that needs to be done is minimized to a great extent and yet one task still remains that no amount of updates can ever reduce - updating your contacts. That’s where Addappt comes into the picture.
This app has the knack of automatically updating the contact list whenever the specific contact changes his/her contact information on his/her phone, thus saving you a whole pile of work if there are many contacts left to be updated. Addappt inc has also assured that after e-mail registration (which you have to carry out to use the app), your personal information will not be stored on their database, nor will the information sent to third party services, so that’s two less problems.
The interface is neat and good, with the options provided for calling/texting, making easy usability, but the absence of themes is a bit disappointing. And all of the good features are useful if and only if your friends are on Addappt as well, since the details of your contacts need to be updated via Addappt, and I surprisingly found none of my contacts available on Addappt, which makes it practically unusable to me for now. You can invite your contacts via e-mail, but the chances of them joining are, as always, from slim to none.
If you don’t have many contacts, available, I find it hard to recommend Addappt for everyday use, but if the word has been spread around you and your known ones are using it, then it’s worth checking out.
