Interact: better contact management for iOS

Posted in iOS

I recently had a chance to get an early look at the latest app from Agile Tortoise, the developer behind Drafts 4.

Interact is the latest app, and it brings contact management on iOS to a whole new level.
Gone are the days of only managing groups and editing contact data on your Mac; with Interact, you can create and edit groups, edit, delete, and create new contacts with ease from iOS.
One of the app’s most powerful features is the scratch pad. The scratch pad can detect and intelligently parse contact details and correctly sort them for quick entries. It uses natural language, much like Fantastical’s calendar entry, to recognize relevant contact fields from plain text; making it simple to select text almost anywhere and create or update contacts.
That’s right, I said almost anywhere, because Interact has its own create contact share sheet extension. Is there anyone else who thought Apple would at least add a contact extension in iOS 9?

Of course, it goes without saying, the app is fully VoiceOver compatible. So if you have ever wanted a more elegant solution for managing your contacts from iOS, then grab Interact in the App Store.
This one will certainly be a Back Stage Pass discussion, so check out the iOS Master Series to find out how you can tune in.
