If you use an iPhone or iPad, you now have an option for your default contact app. Cardhop is an app that works as a gateway for all contact-based actions. It supports apps like WhatsApp, Telegram, Skype, Viber, Twitter and Messenger. It works with phone calls, FaceTime, Facetime Audio and messages.
The app, owned by Flexibits, works on iPhones and iPads today. It is a more productive and interesting substitute for the default contacts app on your iPhone.
You can select your desired messaging app with just a tap on the message button in a contact card. This is particularly useful if you must multitask and message different people on different apps. It also features a recent tab that shows you the actions carried out with each contact. With just a click, Cardhop will let you repeat past actions with a contact.
The app has a birthday tab feature that shows your contacts’ upcoming birthdays. It is a great way to archive your friends and family birthdays, especially if you are one of those people who has left Facebook for good.
Cardhop supports looking up people in your G Suite or Exchange on both macOS and iOS. When you need to share a contact, it lets you customise your vCard. You can use the app to create a virtual business with a QR code. It has a line-up of shortcuts that make it easier to navigate the app. A search bar that lets you track a conversation thread with a contact.
Just by typing a person’s name and their number, the app automatically saves their contact in your phonebook. You can also use it with Siri.
However, the app is not free. It is available in the App Store for $4.99. You can also get it for $3.99 for a limited time.
