The value of networking has never been higher as the pandemic has confined us to our homes. Managing the contacts we have or creating new ones shouldn’t be a difficult and time-consuming task.

However, the iOS and Android native Contact Apps may not offer all the features to manage your contacts effectively. Installing a third-party contacts app may help you organize your contacts better or group them based on different parameters.

Some contact apps may even help you facilitate relationships with your clients or hold online meetings with your colleagues. That’s the reason why we selected the top five contacts apps for iOS and Android devices in 2020.
