FullContact for iOS Gets New Merge Features in Version 4.1

contactspls | March 25, 2015

Now that we’ve had FullContact for iOS out in the wild for a few weeks, it’s time for the first major update. Version 4.1 of your FullContact address book adds some great features, fixes some bugs and makes the app easier than ever to use.

What’s New in 4.1?

Duplicate Handling

[getImage id=”” class=”alignright size-medium wp-image-9168″ src=”/wp-content/uploads/2015/03/iphone-300×300-300×300.jpg” width=”300″]We know how important it is to have accurate contact data, and duplicates are a pain for everyone. One of the core features of FullContact is its ability to merge contacts that we’re sure are duplicates, and we do that for you automatically. You’ll see the number of automatic merges that we’ve handled for you on the new duplicates screen.

But we’ve gone a step further in the new release, bringing two highly-requested features:

Low-Confidence Duplicates

In version 4.1 we’ll now show you a list of possible duplicates for you to review or decline.

Selective Merge

Selective Merge is another feature that many of you have been asking for. Selective Merge lets you choose which contact fields that you want to combine from duplicate contacts. For instance, if you don’t care about someone’s AngelList profile, you don’t have to merge it.

This feature is in the iOS app only for now, but will be rolling out to the web version of FullContact over time.

UI/UX Updates

You’ll no longer have to wait after clicking ‘Update All’ in the Updates section and can immediately go right back to using the app.

There has also been a bevy of bug fixes and performance improvements baked into the latest version of FullContact for iOS so your address book will now work faster than ever before.

If you’ve been a FullContact for iOS user, thanks. If you’ve not yet put your address book to work for you, it’s time to get started. Download FullContact from the App Store and find out how powerful your contacts can be.
