Families are always moving. Friends are always getting new jobs. Everyone’s lives are changing so often that it is hard to keep track. Now that mobile phones are so common, it is much easier to get in touch, but also much more difficult to stay in touch.
Sync.Me is an app that automatically syncs with your Facebook, LinkedIn, and Google+ accounts so you will always know your brother’s new address, your co-worker’s new job title, and your high school friend’s new last name…
The app was recently redesigned for iOS 7 and now includes Sync.Me Widgets. Users can take advantage of the app’s multiple features by way of a set of widgets for each contact. The widgets include social network connectivity to contact profiles on Facebook, LinkedIn, and Google+. Those social networks actually feed the app with up-to-date information. The widgets also allow Wi-Fi or 3G calling right from within the app. You can take a picture of a physical business card and turn it into a digital contact, add notes, reminders, call recording, and more.
If it is someone’s birthday or anniversary, send them best wishes using the “Send Greeting” widget. Share your location with your contacts using Waze or Google Maps. Send a picture of your new home using the “Share Photos” widget. You will see full screen profile pictures from your contacts when you call them or when they call you.
The app updates your contacts with current pictures, phone number, email, company, job title, address, and website information. If someone’s information changes, the app will automatically be updated with the changes. If your best friend just took a new job, you won’t have to ask what the new title is. When your mom wants you to help her move, you won’t have to tell her you lost her new address already.
If you want to control what you contacts know about you, create a ME Card with fully editable contact information, including the profile picture. That way, your boss won’t be exposed to the late night “selfie” you took the other day, but your friends can all laugh at you.
The app will also remind you of friend’s birthdays. You’ll never have to apologize for forgetting your grandmother’s birthday again. You can create and share greetings for any occasion.
Sync.me is available for the iPhone for free. Download it in the App Store today.
