Hi there, CircleBackers. Andy here. I just wanted to let you all know what we’ve been up to, and what’s just been released in our latest version of CircleBack for iOS—a smart contact management app for iPhone users!
As you know, we’re deeply committed to creating an app based on your wants and needs. And since we first launched on iOS in February, the three biggest asks have been:
- Address book sync with Exchange so CircleBack can manage those contacts
- Make the business card scanner better
- Change the sort order of lists
It’s with great pleasure that I announce that, as of today, we’ve done all three (and more).
Download the new version of CircleBack for iOS
To connect CircleBack with Exchange, it’s as easy as clicking a button and logging in. In seconds, CircleBack goes to work managing those (along with all your other) contacts ensuring that they’re all up-to-date and accurate and that you have a single, unified address book.
And as for the card scanner, we’ve gone deep under the hood and created what is easily the best OCR scanner on the market. That means fewer scanning errors, less manual input by you, and more confidence when you’re networking on the go, thus serving as an intelligent contact management app for iPhone.
But that’s not all.
We’ve also added:
- The ability to take control of your CircleBack identity, share it with others, and provide the community with your most up-to-date info with the CircleBack Profile,
- The opportunity to easily edit contact updates you’re in the process of accepting,
- New sorting options for when you update contacts, and
- The convenience to export contacts to Salesforce CRM.
We know, we know. You’re welcome 🙂 .
But really (and we want you to remember this): this is all done in service to you. If you think CircleBack could do something better, don’t hesitate to reach out to me at email@example.com. We take every single request very seriously and are deeply committed to building the app you want.
I hope to hear from you.
Until next time,
VP of Consumer Products

ContactSaver appears to be broken. It insists that I connect to my supposed Gmail account before it will allow me to do anything else. All I want to do is to resolve my 5,000 contact duplicates (painful at best) and clean them up before I move on. No escapes… I have no interest in doing Google mail at the moment. Very very frustrating. The app looked so promising. I was about to give it a 5 star review… :-/
David, I think you’re using the wrong tool. ContactSaver is an app dedicated to email signature capture (hence the need for email connection). The app you need is CircleBack. It offers smart deduping, contact updates, and a great business card scanner. It sounds much closer to what you need.
