The Contacts app is a cluttered mess these days. I downloaded a new app that promised to make great use of my iPhone's Contacts, only to find that what I had in mine was dated, unsorted, and confusing.
There were people in my contacts I've never attempted to contact, but I connected with them through work, Twitter, and Facebook. Some were people that haven't been a part of my life ever—just people that I thought might be good to know one day. Well, the opportunity has long since past.
With a little consideration, and some time to spare, I figured it was high time to weed out Contacts. It’s really easy: Tap Edit in the top right (if you’re using your iPad or iPhone, as I was just now) then scroll to the bottom of all the editable details for the contact's "card." Then, choose Delete and confirm.
I would like to make better use of Contacts in the future, and with the app I'm trying out for my Contacts, I think it will be worth my while. If you want to check out the app, it’s called Mingle. I believe it’s well-worth your consideration.
My thanks to David Sparks for mentioning Mingle on MacSparky.
