Con­tact Cen­ter is about start­ing con­ver­sa­tions more eas­ily. You get a user-de­fin­able grid to which you add icons for per­form­ing a spe­cific task, such as a group SMS, call­ing a num­ber, or send­ing a pre­de­fined mes­sage. It’s also pos­si­ble to cre­ate fold­ers, into which you can place th­ese icons. This po­ten­tially ex­tends the avail­able num­ber of slots from 12 (or 15 if you re­move the ad via IAP) to 132 (or 210).

The app takes time to set up and the process can be quite in­volved, but there’s as­sis­tance in be­ing able to con­vert an ex­ist­ing con­tact into a folder with one tap. In use, Con­tact Cen­ter proves an ef­fi­cient com­pan­ion to Ap­ple’s Con­tacts app. The only dis­ap­point­ment is a lack of so­cial net­work in­te­gra­tion – although it recog­nises What­sApp’s ex­is­tence, it’s en­tirely obliv­i­ous to Twit­ter and Face­book. Craig Gran­nell

A use­ful app for very quickly start­ing calls or mes­sages to peo­ple you con­verse with fre­quently.
