App of the Week - Cinder: Clean Your Contacts

If you find yourself overwhelmed by the number of contacts in your phone, some of whom you may not have called or texted in months, 
Cinder: Clean Your Contacts could just be your new favorite app.  

This extremely practical, utility-style app boasts a Tinder-like functionality. Users will essentially be able to scroll their exhaustive contact list, and swipe left (to flag for deletion) or swipe right (to keep) on each of their contacts. The strategy is to make sorting through your contacts as fun and seamless as possible.

If you accidentally swipe to delete an important contact, never fear! You’ll be able to review your swipes and then later permanently delete the numbers or names you actually want to erase. You’ll be able to restore any mistaken deletions in the app as well.

While there are more complex contact organizer apps that are on the market, Cinder’s simplistic and easy-to-use design makes it a fun, and functional, download for your iPhone or iPad. Ready to get started cleaning out that contact list? Cinder is currently available for iPhone users and is free for download in the iOS App Store.
