The problem with contacts on phones is that if they’re saved to the phone itself, what happens if the phone is lost, stolen, or if the data becomes messed up on there? Contacts are lost, and suddenly all those important numbers are gone and lost forever, until a Facebook group asking for peoples’ digits becomes necessary. Plus, what about people who want to access their contacts on different platforms? Well, LiveContacts will soon be able to help. Currently in beta, LiveContacts aims to allow users to back up and import contacts to and from iOS, Android, Windows Phone, and even Symbian, with Windows, Mac, and Linux synchronization support in the works. As well, it will hopefully spice up the default contact book, allowing for related contacts search based on those contacts already in the address book, additional social information, and automatic changes to the contacts’ information as it changes. Appfortel, the developer, is currently beta testing LiveContacts, but hope to have it released later this summer. Until then, check out sample screenshots and information on the LiveContacts website.
