BARCELONA, Spain, Feb. 26, 2012 /PRNewswire-Asia/ -- The winner of 2009 GSMA Mobile Innovation Global Award, TouchPal, announced today at Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2012 that its new innovative app, TouchPal Contacts, is now available in the iOS App Store and Android Market.The app will be demoed live at MWC at the App Planet Pavilion, Hall 7, booth # 7C90.
TouchPal Contacts is an innovative contacts manager for mobile phones that manages your contacts in real-time, making long and cumbersome contact lists a thing of the past. It makes contact lists useful again with many break-through innovations: real-time availability indicators, social integration, and dynamic contact card management.
"Contact apps simply haven't kept pace with all the other advances in smartphones," said TouchPal CEO Michael Wong. "They can be difficult to keep organized and most are little better than a long list of names. We're excited to launch TouchPal Contacts and bring much-needed innovation to this space. Now, there's no need to settle for the standard contacts app your phone came with."
Real-Time Social Integration: TouchPal Contacts+ fully integrates with the most popular social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter so you can post one status update and have it appear on all your social media services and in your friends' contact lists.
Real-Time Availability Status Indicators: Easily assign "busy" or "available" indicators so your friends know when you're free. Availability of contacts is indicated right in your contact list so you always know when to call.
Availability Alerts and Automatic Callbacks: Receive alerts when contacts change their availability status from busy to available. TouchPal Contacts+ can even automatically call back contacts when they hang up a call.
Dynamic Contact Card Management: TouchPal Contacts+ automatically updates your own contact information and pushes it out to all your contacts, so any changes you make show up instantly when friends search for you in their contact list.
Cross Platform Integration: TouchPal Contacts+ is available for Android, iOS, and soon Windows Phone 7. No matter which phone you and your contacts have, your contact list will stay updated and organized.
TouchPal takes user privacy seriously. For advanced features such as real-time availability alerts, TouchPal asks permission to view phone numbers in order to match other TouchPal users and won't know who the phone numbers belong to. For more information on ways TouchPal keeps your privacy safe, please read the privacy statement in the App.
