Reviews From google play store

Like everyone else, I had previously paid for a life time membership but with the update, I am now back to the free version with adds. Very unethical business practice, I have already emailed on the 6th Nov and never got a response. I am guess I will just get another standard copy and pasted reply below asking me to email support and they will investigate, disgusting!!! I am going to report this to Google for this sick, unfair money making behaviour!


After raising my concerns, the app was updated and ads were removed (thank you). Previous to this update, I had full functionality including themes. I guess that my value as a long time customer is no longer important.to your success. There are other options out there; I'll have a look around. Based on the ethics, or lack of, my rating reflects your treatment of long term customers. Congratulations on your successes.


I have been a user of contacts+ for years. The new update is frankly terrible. The ui is clumsy compared to the old version, ringtone customisation has gone, I cannot edit phone numbers, the merged contacts must now be edited separately, rather than in tabs, some edits simply do not work. Nor do I seem to be a premium user any more. I cannot understand the rationale behind the changes or how this release got put with so many errors


Gotten continually worse(IMO) over time, last straw was losing my "lifetime" premium membership and no obvious way to restore it. At least it gave me the motivation to finally find another alternative that isn't spiralling downward In a quest try and monetize payings users in every conceivable fashion.


I've been using this app for years. I upgraded at least four years ago, and have been using it ever since. I loved the chat colors, and then they added different icons for the home screen. It was great, until this update. Monthly payments, of $100/yr? I pay that for music, not where I house my texts… They took away the different chat colors, and the home screen icon custom options. Not to mention I had multiple accounts with contacts, now it seems I can't. I'll be finding a different app to use.


The last update ruined it. It took away a lot of the customization it had before. Also, sms pop-ups now take over your screen and won't go away unless you physically swipe them from the screen. You also can't get into your phone now if there's an sms pop-up unless you first swipe the huge, ugly pop-up. Changing the notification options does nothing...choose "no pop-up"and you still get 'em. I previously purchased the upgrade, so I don't want to ditch this app, but.......


This used to be a great app but version 6 sucks. All the customization features that used to be a part of the app are now gone. Even those of us who bought the pro version years ago for the ability to customize the themes have lost the ability to do so. Now you only have the choice of a generic light or dark them with no option to customize them. You can no longer swipe from sms, to call logs, to dialer, you now have to tap the icons on the bottom of the screen. This may not seem like a big deal but it does make navigating the app more difficult than it was before. You can no longer choose the icon size for your contacts or change whether they are in list or grid view. Now favorite contacts are large icons in a grid view with a list of the rest of your contacts following with smaller icons. I've heard you have more options if you sign up for their cloud contacts but as I host my own cloud option for my contacts I don't want or believe I need to sign up for a service just to be able to sort my contacts on my phone. This is nothing more than the developers using the app to push people to their services whether people need or want them. After having loved this app for years, I'm now looking for a new contacts app.


*****I will be uninstalling Contacts+ and moving to another app.***** I've been using the app for years, had even paid for the pro version, but with the latest update they have taken a once great app and have taken away many of the features that were the reason I originally went with Contacts+. I don't seem to be the only one who is unhappy with the update. Charging $100 plus a year for a contacts app (which I just barely pay for Photoshop) that has been stripped of features, is ridiculous.


I've had this app for years and even paid for the upgrade and it was a great app. Until the latest update. Now there's yet another level of upgrade ($) necessary to access simple features that were previously incorporated. I don't want to have to create an account, and I want to be able to sort contacts and customize the theme. I'll be on the search for a new contacts app now unfortunately.


Remarkable how developers can turn the best contacts app into the worst. I've been using contacts+ for more than 5 years. Amazing how many aspects of the app has been changed for the negative. Wiill be deleting the app and using default app until I identify a replacement. Update: a minor change was made allowing sorting by frequency. Now, how about letting us sort by category and customize ring tones. Anything less and deleting. There are alternatives, prior to update no other app came close.


Hello, I am a long time premium user of the app. I like the new design too, but I have some concerns 1. I don't use sms within the app and hence I'd like to be able to remove the sms tab altogether, as it is just clutter to me. 2. I want the recent calls to the default tab when I open the app. This was available in the older version. It was so useful. I'm surprised to see the feature go. I do not wish to enable cloud accounts. I want to stick with this app, but I may look for alternatives.


I now have this app. Update sucks! I have multiple email accounts that I access for others signed into my phone, in the past I could back their contacts from populating to the app... Not anymore. And if you tell me I can do it from online and not from the app that is even worse. The reason for an app is so I don't have to go online all the time. I'll be finding a new app.


UPDATE 5: v6.0.8 has made no difference. ORIGINAL REVIEW: v6 has downgraded my account to free despite having paid for the premium version. Not only do I now have ads to contend with, I have to get the new Gold app with quite an expensive subscription to get what I've already paid for. And the developer is responding to reviews with a generic "email us" instead of actually addressing the issues. Expect nothing different with this review.


Now that the paid user seeing ads is fixed: Pretty straightforward, does what it says and what it needs to do. Basically my only complaint is the links you post are the same color as your text box, so you can't actually see them when you send them via SMS. More freedom to customize colors would be cool. Other than that, great app.


As multiple other users, previous update made my account (for which I've paid years ago) same as the free one, and after contacting the support and receiving 6.0.8 update, that was fixed. However, the only thing close to the previous paid membership is just not having ads. Most of the options for customizing are still gone, and app is nowhere near close to it's functionality as it used to be. The subscription price is extremely unreasonable - $100 a year for a contacts app? The entire MS Office 365 suite is cheaper than that.


I was using your app for several years and was so happy and suggested to many many of my friends and relatives. Which moron in your team approved the new design? It was one of the best app and now 90% of my friends and me are moving away to other apps. Anyway, you screwed it up guys. It was a pathetic move. Advice. Try reverting back to old version to avoid losing your customers. Else it will be contact plus RIP. Yes, I have emailed to your support emailid aswell.


This makes me think of organizations that sell to new management that think they are going to come in and change everything and make it greater than ever, but all they really manage to do is drive the whole thing straight into the ground. The new interface looks awful. All of the customization features are gone. Light, dark...that's really all you could come up with? For some reason I now have two icons in my app drawer. I've used this app for a long time but guess it's time to look for another.


I'm using this app for years now (the free version). It used to be a good app, but the latest updates are a significant downgrade to the experience and to the functionality. I miss the "lines view" which I preferred over the current grid view. The missed calls/messages overlay insn't working on my homes creen and I came across a bug while adding a contact from the call log - it's being added and after a few seconds it's being removed.


App is now absolutely horrendous. I'm moving on if I have to contend with this piece of mess. Just take a look at your other reviews... That should tell you something... Plus with many features being deleted after many of us subscribed this can now be considered bait and switch. EDIT: My battery usage has dropped way down since 6.xx was forced upon us. Also new version cannot be optimized. Nice job!


Used to be fine until recent update. Where are the groups now ?! Design became worse. Restricted functionality. Where is tone setting for specific calls?! Update: I thought it was some kind of mistake but know it's clear - it was an intentional action on cutting the App functionality. Why did you kill a good app? I'm leaving.


This all used to be great. I've had it for years. I paid for and upgrade and loved it, but now for there's another IAP required to access the features that I had before. I don't want to create an account. I don't feel that shouldn't be necessary for a contacts app. Also, $100 a year? Sorry. I'm moving on to a new contacts app. Best of luck.


What have you done? You removed all the customisation. The dark mode doesn't work properly (copying text displays a blank selection page). I can't swipe between tabs. I can't change back the order that the tabs are in. I can't remove the assistant tab. And the spacing on the left while browsing contacts is to large. I also can't change the size and spacing of contacts, i.e. how many contacts I can see on the screen at once. And for gods sake, bring back square icons! What am I even paying for?


Terrible! They changed everything that made it good. As many have said, they took our money and now took away the app we paid for. The greatest insult is being asked to pay $100 a year !! for an app that is now no better than my pre--installed Contacts. All the emails I've sent have not received one helpful response. In fact most reponses are just cut and paste duplicates of each other. Do not trust this company.


I loved the Previous FullContacts app version as a paid prescription because it meant so much to me and I successfully ran my life with it. After it changed to the Contacts + Plus I encountered difficulty after difficulty organizing my contacts as should be all in one list. As Of 21NOV2019 I would securely back up contacts elsewhere but I will update this the moment I feel comfortable again. Bob C. Pittsburgh PA


Used to be a great app. I was happy to have paid for the functionality. But with the new update, I lost all of this and now you try to force me to pay 100 $ a year for this!!! I'm sorry, but such an increase is not justified. You just lost a customer. Update: no Ads are shown anymore and functionality remains as before (I used to have the paid version). Thanks for this improvement.


Well, it looks like they didn't listen to their users, which is why I went from 5 stars (like others here have noted, it used to be great!), to 3 stars (during beta of v6), to 1 star (v6 release). The new UI lacks some of the functionality of what we used to love. Why aren't we able to swipe across SMS/Calls/Contacts screens anymore? Simple quick actions in the notifications aren't there, like if you get more than one SMS you can swipe down and see the full preview, or mark as read or reply. Or editing numbers from the call log... Honestly I'll be continuing to use v5 of the app which was way better and more usable. __BETA Review: Had to remove myself from the beta as all my favorite features were gone there : no grid, no swiping across sms/call/contact screens. And no dark theme? With apps more and more including dark themes, this app thinks of removing them is a good idea? I was an early paying supporter of this app, and it looks like they're moving to a subscription model. I'm hoping they really think twice before making the beta public.


This app has quickly gone from being on my must have apps list to me going back to looking for a Contacts app with a decent ui and the ability to have it blend in with the other apps I use, after having paid for it. With current updates it's looking and functioning worse than the built-in contacts app on my S7, with no way to get back the old ui.


Nov. 12, 2019 A new feature of this app is to not to be able to select ringtones, what kind of a phone dialer, contact application would do this. I have had this app for years and all of the sudden they removed this feature. Don't buy until they fix this. This is their response: "Unfortunately, we had to remove some features in the new application, our apologies! Unfortunately, we don't know if or when this feature will be available again, sorry about that!"


PLEASE tell me this latest update is a Halloween gag. NOTHING works anymore, and the user has zero options to customize and get back the look and the amazing functionality it had. I look at my contacts screen and it gives me no real info to locate what I need quickly -- just the useless colored bubbles and confusing abbreviations that are now HUGE. (And, yes, I know how to add photos to select ones.) This looks like a kid's candy game. C'mon, developers, undo this horrible update.


What?? Customization gone.. icons gone.. and it does not really sync contact information correctly. One does not know where or what to edit anymore. Huge step back. If it is not broken then so not fix it! And I I sm a premium costumer.. not for long now. What is wrong? Mom all so dar.


The new UI is terrible, I'm looking for another app after years using this one. The SMS sending UI is confusing. Why typing a number doesn't search contact numbers? Why all that empty space on the left? Using contacts+ call screen has no effect. The date picker (when editing contacts) does not work. I have no idea why fixing what was not broken.


One of those apps that after a while you loose some features because the app developers changed some payment teems or added new version.Now I can't sync my calls and messages .... contacted the developer of the app on the email and they didn't help me with problem.


Updating the review since the T9En-like search is available after clicking on the "+" icon on the Contacts tab, and then selecting "Dial a Number". It's still a bit of a hassle, cuz of too many taps. Also, swiping between tabs would be a nice option (since there is no option to swipe on a contact/call to initiate a call or send a whatsapp message, anyway.) Hoping the dev team revives this awesome Contacts app to its former glory. Will restore 5 as it becomes more usable & customizable.


After the update, I totally got lost. It's like a whole new app that I didnt know how to use. I cant figure how to edit the contact details, all my contacts suddenly just got messed up. I dont even know how to change the huge icons on the contacts list to how it was originally. Some buttons dont work. I miss the older versions :(


New version autoupdated and made phone calls unusable. Prompting to log in and couldn't make phone calls. When I try to log in it just hangs in spinning circle of death.. Why am i being asked to log in to make a phone call?? Had to uninstall it to regain use of my phone back.


The new design is great! But, Previous version was better at searching contacts. Now i have to toggle back and forth from contacts to dialled list to search for a number! Also, please add left and right swipe to toggle between contacts, dial log, and others.


I have been using this app for more than 3 or years , by the favorite of all, but after the last update , I'm afraid I might not be using it, no contacts search keyboard selection in setting, not good layout, etc , I'm very disappointed !!!


The app is great. Since the recent updates, it's slower to open the app (especially messages) and affects other functions. I don't like the way message spacing is displayed as this has changed.


It's been the best app ever to keep everything organized in catagories but since the last update, all my contacts are mixed up, catagories are gone and am having a hard time adding new contacts. What did you guys do!!! I'll be looking for another app today.


6.0 is awful... The loss of decent sorting, of resizing of the Contacts list... The burying of any decent theme choices behind a paywall.... The app is incredibly laggy, taking sometimes 20-30 seconds to load contact names into the sms tab, instead of just contact numbers.... This "update" really tanked this app. And it's very unfortunate. Cue the "Please contact us at blahblahblah@supportdotcom instead if us fixing this app" response from the dev...... Edit. 6.0.7 is even worse.


Dear Contacts+ Team I hope U can tap the vibe from the recent reviews of newest version.. The new version of app sucks big time... The design and UX guys in team should be sacked for killing the experience completely.. will wait for this to be fixed to atleast match the previous version before moving to other alternates


Great for years but got paywalled. I had a paid version of this app, and was told that was access to the full content of this app. This newest update put up a new premium pay system and pushed me out of my purchase. Not cool with that type of capitalism.


I also paid for this app and now I'm on a free, ad supported version. I'll be damned if I pay for an expensive subscription. Deceptive at the very least. Edit: I don't know what you're smoking in Colorado but this update has destroyed a once great app. Uninstalling.


new update is AWFUL! what happened to grid view??? and 1 touch dialing??? I'm even a paid member!! I've been searching for a new contacts app now, because all. the features I loved about this are gone! I hate when apps update that don't need updating! 🤬🤬🤬🤬


The "upgraded" version is a disappointment and completely undermines everything that made this app great and the staple replacement for the default dialer I've had on every device I've had. Farewell, it was nice while it lasted.


I have been using contact plus premium since 3_4 years. Now it's asking me to make monthly and yearly payments. I had paid for full version one time payment. Then what's the benefits of paying for full version. Thanks


App auto-updated Nov2019 and now my contacts don't have the right phone numbers associated with them. I go to call my dad, and it dials my brother. Cant even use this app anymore (and the new UI isn't as nice looking as the previous UI).


Very disappointed to be downgraded to the free version w/o ads (I still get spammed by upgrade to gold). Don't even see the Premium Silver it says I'm on listed as an option. When I look at my account online is says I am a free member.


ROLL BACK! I don't know what you've done to call this an upgrade. I paid for the full version a while back and now it seems like half the features have gone to a NEW FULL VERSION. To be paid for again.


"If it ain't broke don't fix it" . Everyone knows this, but you went ahead and fudged up a perfectly good app and now I have replaced it with one that is as Contacts+ was. Thanks for nothing.


Previous version of contacts+ is quite better than this updated version. Favorite contacts are shown by default in grid view, setting option for that is not available, and also less customisation option available.


It requires an online account to manage the contacts on my phone. Totally unnecessary. My Data shouldn't have to be accessible to outsiders just to manage it.


The free version of new edition is back to 19th century. No comparison to the old one. Uninstalling it. They should restore the features in pre October 2019 version


Recent updates removed many essential features, like open with, favourites list view etc. I have been using since long. But now thinking of shifting other dialer app. Pl make UI and features simpler.add feature receiving call sim information(sim 1 or 2).


Why did you change it? Completely revised GUI is not really something existing users want or need. I can't see the numbers in my text messages any more. Blue numbers on a blue background...crazy.


I want my contact list back. I mean, I dont like it when the contacts are round, and not in a list filtered by most contacted. please help me, I love this app and don't want to switch


No way to search contacts or access the App without going to Google Play Store first...an extra step that wasn't there before.


I love the app. Been using it since 2016. But this last update took away so many features. Many of which I had this app specifically for. Thanks for being there for me all these years. Time for me to say goodbye. 5 stars hands down.


So sad that all UI customization options are suddenly gone in the latest update. No swiping anymore to jump between contacts, call or messages. Seems like a crippled beta to me... :,(


Awful update. I hate it. My contacts are listed in a grid instead of a list, all the features I used are gone and OH HELL NO I AM NOT PAYING $100 for this.


Good app love the syncing but wish there was a cheaper option between gold and silver. Only have 2 accounts don't need upto 5 or support.


Became worse with every update, now I can't even edit my contacts anymore. Subscription prices are ridiculous.


I have been using this app for years, and the new update has genuinely ruined it. I'm a paid user and I wish I had never paid for it considering what they've done to it.


I bought the pro version of this app back in 2015; never had any issues - it got the job done, had the features I needed, was ad-free and convenient. The current "new" version has ads (my account was reset to free status), an ugly interface and artificial limitations (number of contacts). And all that without any further notice before this switch was going to happen. A phone/contacts app is something to rely on for a long time, which I cannot really on this one. Apologies, you lost a customer.


This is the worst update ever. I've been using it since last 4 years lovingly and honestly this is the worst UI you have come up with. There is no customisation available. You just ruined the app. I am uninstalling this.


I have been using this app for years on several different phones. I have loved it until now. You have made several changes to features that I do not like. 1. I can't set the app to open directly to SMS. 2. In the contacts tab, it forces me to see recently contacted people. 3. Even in a dark theme, the contact icons are coloured and I cannot change them. You formerly had a five star rating. For each of the controls that you've removed from me, you have dropped one star, leaving you at two.


I'll be uninstalling this app and going back to my default dialer and messaging app, which are now unfortunately much better than this app since the 6.0 update. Please don't ask me to email you, devs, as it is clear that the decision has been taken to increase revenues via a subscription model, functionality and customisability be damned. Also, the fact that I and several other users bought the premium version be damned. RIP contacts+, it was good while it lasted. Good bye. 👋🏼


Latest "upgrade" has ruined a previously superb app. No longer supports groups, as far as I can see anyway, so no longer fit for purpose. UPDATE: I appreciate the response from the Devs. I have now uninstalled contacts+ despite having used it every day since buying it years ago. Advice to Devs would be to rollback to previous version before other users ditch this app too.


V6 update is terrible. Impossible to search contacts from dialler, unless they're already in the call log. Huge icons in the contacts list. This has been one of my favourite apps for years, now very likely to be replaced by another contacts app unless we soon get the old interface back. Over a 100 $ per year subscription is utterly ridiculous.


This was an excellent app which I have been using for several years, being a paid user. The latest update has made the app unrecognisable and lost features, this is now rubbish and I will be uninstalling it as the original dialler app that came with my S7 is much better than this new version. Please at least give us the option to revert to the old version, even if this means no more updates ever.


Unnecessary and unwanted upgrade (I use the word upgrade loosely!) Like many other reviewers and previous users of this app, I too paid for an upgraded version only to now be lumbered with this! The UI is atrocious and ugly. The features are limited. Why was an app that was on top of its game and one of the best changed to this!?


The latest update made it look like the Google contact app. The reason i believe most users were using this app is because they hated the interface of the Google contact app. It looks even worse now! Please bring the interface back to what it was!!! I hate having to scroll down and seeing the contacts Vertical. On top of that there are so many glitches that I don't know where to begin. You can't delete your messages, the message screen tries to load for hours and never does unless you quit out.


I do not like the new version. Everything I appreciated about the old version is gone, and like many others my paid lifetime subscription has been reduced to a free ad filled version. I'll make do with what came installed on my phone, a one hundred dollar a year subscription is outrageous. Very disappointed.


Having been a paid premium user for many years now, and recommending contacts+ to friends and family, I now find that I've been downgraded to a free user with ads and missing features! this is a shameful way to treat your loyal customers, either revert me back to the previous version that I've enjoyed for many years or I'm leaving.


The new UI is awful. They removed core features (like my custom themes), and filled most of the system menu with marketing spam. The app was also suppose to be one time purchase, but they changed their marketing trying to force their user base to a subscription plan. Total greed has destroyed this once great app. They have lost my trust and I will no longer be using any of their products.


I have been using Contacts+ for many years and it periodically seems to keep losing features. The latest update adds some nice colours but now offers only a large and childish looking grid of three contacts per row. With a large number of business contacts this gives the sensation of looking through a peephole and is difficult to navigate. I think it's perhaps time I (reluctantly) shopped around for a different app. Better suited to casual users now I think.


The last update has fewer features eg. no grouping. - Thanks for the update. Please note that quick-dial feature is missing too.


I generally like this app but recently am unable to take photos from the app to send a MMS. It says "no application found". Would be great if that was fixed, and it I could set a separate notification tone for texts instead of it being the same for everything. Edit: nope, you broke it. Since the last update my contacts are in some random order. It's not first or last name, nor is it people I frequently interact with. This app started out great but has gone downhill. Uninstalling.


Disgusting business practices. Purchased a lifetime 'Pro' version of the app in 2016 and now without my knowledge or consent it has been updated back to a 'free' ads version. Now has ads and is nothing like the old app. I'd like to go back to the previous version but I don't know how. Contacting the ACCC in Australia to get them shut down.


I don't usually feel compelled enough to leave bad reviews but this new version is a complete downgrade from the previous one I was using for years. I was happy with the features, UI, and customization options of which this version has none. This update strips good features and themes away and is frankly ugly and unintuitive.


BEWARE this new version 6 forces PAID users to re-register and then gives you a very BASIC version with most previous features removed. To obtain the full set of listed features you need to pay a monthly subscription fee for the GOLD version. As a paid user since 2015 I had always recommended Contacts+ to my friends. After much searching I have found Simple Contacts Pro ($1.09) along with Google's Phone & Messages apps works well. Simple Contacts Pro has better controls, customisation & backup.


UPDATED, still 1 star. I've been a paid user for over 2 years. Upon updating I was surprised that this new version has none of the features I previously paid for (personalisation, perks etc - now is just no ads), & requires me to sign up to an expensive sub for the pro version when I've already paid.. Not happy at all, the app used to be great -however this new update has taken away features, has an awful layout, and is really poor overall. Why mess with it? Sorry, but still not at all happy


I've been a paid user for 2 years. The new updated downgraded the app to a "free" version and now wants me to buy a new, rather expensive, subscription. I emailed them for an explanation, but got a form email back asking for a log from my phone to diagnose the problem. The problem has nothing to do with my phone. A quick look at their recent reviews will clearly show what the problem is. I'll give them until the weekend to fix this and then I'm uninstalling and moving on with life.


New update does not include options to change appearance, arange themes or stile on messages, font, background, color of text box message and size of contact list preview. All of that made you the best app. Also, you should think about adding option to pin to top messages on the list of messages like viber has. Best regards


Took away the group feature, this was a useful way for me to organize contacts. Why is it gone?


Not supporting dual sim?,.. With the new updates, there is no possibility to dial with second sim. Tried all things and stopped using this app..


Customized theme is not available, In your developed version mostly the apps betterment are slowly getting vanished, not improved , PL make available customized theme option again


tl:dr: 6.0 update removed most good design that this app had and added unneeded subscription service. I've bought this app a while ago and I liked using it until latest update. But now this app's design changed for worse with removal of several features like hiding the tabs that I don't want to see and selecting which page opens first when you launch the app. And new list design is totally ugly - there is a 20 or more pixel spacing between list items which makes scrolling through calls a major pain. Also the app now has a subscription service that has a big ugly 'UPGRADE' button in the sidebar which I, as a user who previously bought the app find annoying.


As so many people are reporting, this used to be an amazing app. Now with this latest version, they have gotten greedy and forgotten about what truly matters in business, the customer. I have been paying for this app from the begining and will now take my business elsewhere. This is absolutely one of the worst decisions I've ever seen, like New Coke bad.


Why mend a fence when not broken. Preferred the old version any day to the new release.


I paid for this over 3 years ago. It was amazing. The new version destroyed all the best and amazing features. I wrote to them and they were kind but said those features are gone with no plan to bring them back. Sad. The product manager blew it. Very obvious that they did not seek out the advice of power users or have any on they beta test team.


Like everyone else reviewing after their recent update. You apparently have to pay $9.99 a month to now use features that aren't really features? Are you serious? Additionally all of the customization and even the ability to organize the contacts in any sort of way is GONE. What are they thinking? I'll be uninstalling this shortly. What a shame.


Used to be an excellent app, and was money well spent because was the best contacts app available. But this new version is reaaly bad, they removed lots of the customization options leaving you just with light/dark, you can't remove the recent calls from the main screen nor scroll left or right on the main screen anymore to go to sms and call history and even the dialer is on another screen. Gonna have to look for a new contacts app now... =(


In 2016, Contacts+ was a great app and I had paid for a lifetime upgrade to Plus - 5 stars. As of October 2019, I've reduced it to 1 star. The latest update indicates I am now "Premium Silver", which is basically "Ad-free" and no features. All "premium" features I previously relied upon, most notably syncing contacts with multiple accounts and merging, have now been moved to an even MORE premium version which requires a hefty monthly or yearly subscription. I am quite disappointed, and will be looking at competitors who now are what Contacts+ was then.


Was brilliant until the new update. Can no longer start typing someone's name on the dailer and it will find them from your contacts unless you already have a call history with them. Now whenever I long press a text I just get a blank white box popping up with no options on it. I can no longer assign contacts to groups or tell the phone book which groups to display, which was a great way sort out different work contacts.


Long time paying customer soon to be former customer. The "update" is a downgrade, my contacts are no longer able to be organized the way I like and much of the appearance customization is gone. I'm keeping the app installed for a couple more days, but if the developer doesn't reverse course in response to recent reviews, abandon ship!


New update has removed almost all personalisation options. App is slow to load. Paid for premium access a few years ago but new MORE premium gold level has made that meaningless - hey, they have my money so why do I matter? If the previous functionality isn't restored then I'll join other long term users in uninstalling the app. Would not recommend it to anyone at present.


Latest update is garbage, can't set start up screen anymore, have to use their decided format eg large grid photos. Really poorly planned degrade, you obviously thought "we know better" . As a previous review mentioned, you've lost a paid customer, I'll look for something else. I've already emailed you.


I have never gone to the trouble of reviewing an app before, but I felt compelled to in this case. This new version is complete garbage, and you are now forced to sign in to use the app (it actually signed me in automatically, without any intervention from me). You have lost a paid customer, although you probably don't care since you already have my money. I'm giving one star only because the system won't allow a rating of zero stars.


A downgrade that costs more. Have been a subscriber for a while now and this latest update has ruined the app. Unable to change screen layout/fonts to how I like, current subscription not enough so adverts at top of screen. All in all very bad. Have switched to default contact/messaging app until I can find a replacement.
