PureContact Revamps Your Contact Management

There is certainly no shortage of replacement dialers for Android. However, one part of the equation that is often neglected for those not running an OEM-skinned version of Android is contact management. And while the stock option in the latest versions of Android isn’t lacking in any functionality, some additional variety is always nice—especially when it’s aesthetically appealing and features a gesture-driven interface.

Thankfully, XDA Forum Member orda2000 has the solution in the form of PureContact. This app allows you to manage your contacts and connect with them through the use of assignable gestures. Since the interface is gesture driven, it’s both faster and clutter free than one with more prominent actions. Currently, four actions can be defined, and these correspond with swiping up, down, left, and right.

In the words of the developer:

With PureContact you can contact your friends through the use of gestures (swipe up, swipe down, swipe left, swipe right) or through double tap.
Through these simple actions you can recall the whatsapp conversation with the selected contact, send text, write an email or call.

Just long press on blank screen and add your favourite contact. Then you can choose the default photo contact or select one in your gallery.
Pick up one numbers and one email (if the contact have more than one) and just press save.

Go to the settings menu and choose the actions for the swipe.

Now you can use gestures to send text, whatsapp, email or call.

What’s more, the developer has some interesting plans for future revisions such as the ability to update your social media networks directly from the app and a theme engine. But before these things can be done, all of the bugs have to be ironed out, so make sure to report any issues that you experience directly to the developer in the thread.

To get started, simply head over to the original thread. Better contact management is only a few steps away.
