Managing the contacts on the relatively small screen of your Android or iPhone can be tricky and time-consuming. Additionally, transferring your contacts from device to device can be even more difficult.
Luckily, there is a new app on the block that can solve both issues for you.
Contact Transfer is an incredibly useful app that lets you move your contacts from the phone to phone, backup contacts to your PC, as well as Add, Edit, and Delete contacts from your PC.
What is Contact Transfer?
Contact Transfer is an application for Windows 10 PCs. It allows you to connect your mobile devices, whether they be Android or iPhone, and manage their contacts from your computer itself.
You can connect an iPhone with Contact Transfer simply by connecting it with your USB cable. Note that iTunes is required to be installed on your PC to make a connection with an iPhone.
To connect an Android device with Contact Transfer, you’ll need to get the free Contact Transfer Android app from Google Play Store. Once installed, you can connect your Android to Contact Transfer using Wi-Fi! To do this, all you need to do is open the app on your phone, tap “Scan Contact Transfer QR Code”, then hold p your phone’s camera to the QR code shown in Contact Transfer on your PC. Cool, right?
Contact Transfer features
As mentioned, this app isn’t just a one-trick-pony. Whatever you need to do with your contacts, you’ll be able to do it with the aid of the Contact Transfer.
Managing your contacts can be a daunting task from the small screen of your Android or iPhone. And it can be downright impossible to efficiently delete contacts in batch from them.
Contact Transfer alleviates these pain points by providing a toolset that gives you the power to create, edit, and delete your device’s contacts from your PC!
To access the management tools, click the ‘pencil’ icon (“Add & Edit”) from the toolbar to the left of the application. Then follow the steps to connect your device.
Create new contacts: Clicking the “New Contact” button will bring up a form for you where you can fill in the details of your new contact. Simply click a field and start typing your information.
Using the green “+” icons, you can add multiple items for data like Telephone Numbers and Addresses for your contact.
Once you’ve added all the details you want, click “Save Changes”. The contact will now be added to your device for you to find in your default contacts app!
Edit and update contacts: If your friends or clients have recently changed some of their details, you’ll want to make sure that you update their record on your phone.
To do this, find and select the contact from the list in Contact Transfer. Click the fields you need to edit and update the information.
Saving the information instantly updates the record on your connected Android or iPhone!
Deleting contacts: As mentioned, depending on your device, you may not be able to select multiple contacts to delete at once in your Contacts app.
Needless to say, you can do this easily in Contact Transfer, saving you loads of time.
Select the contacts you want to delete (clicking single contact, or holding ‘ctrl’ on your keyboard while selecting multiple), then hit “Delete Contact”. It’s as easy as that.
Moving contacts between Android, iPhone and PC often requires complicated steps, syncing with online accounts, or technical know-how. With Contact Transfer, however, it is easy. All transfers are done locally and securely on your PC – no uploads or online syncs needed!
Simply follow the 4-step process to:
- Choose your Source and Destination device. The Source device is the device that contains the contacts that you wish to transfer.
- Connect your chosen devices. As mentioned, you can connect an iPhone using a USB cable, and an Android via Wi-Fi using the Contact Transfer Android app.
- Select the contacts you want to transfer. Click to select individual contacts or click “All” to select them all!
So, there you have it! As you can see, Contact Transfer is an incredible program, which is bursting with helpful tools.
