I’m not sure whether my displeasure with this app is based on a personal displeasure for contact managers that aren’t the stock Address Book, or something particular about this app. What I can say is that this app looks good, and offers plenty of room to input all kinds of information about the people you keep in touch with. But this application lacks the convenience of being able to import contacts you already have saved in your Address Book, and this is critical for any app designed to manage an enormous contact list. Having said that, paying ten dollars to input all of my contact information for each contact all over again is something you may want to think twice about (though there’s no question that once all of that information is stored, the Star Contacts sorts through them very quickly).
- Works well: no bugs and it’s quite fast
- Looks decent
- No option to import contacts from Address Book
- The price may be hard to justify based on the lack of convenience.
The bottom line is that everything works as advertised. Star Contacts is fast, offers information-rich contact criteria, and it even looks okay. But importing the contacts you already have saved on your device is pretty critical for myself, and without this feature, it makes considerably less sense to spend ten dollars on an application that sorts your contacts as effectively as Address Book, and offers only slightly more thorough information about your contacts (though your contacts’ spouse’s name could come in handy every once in a while).
