  • App Store Info


If you’ve ever been sent an address in a text message and tried to add it to a contact you’ll know why you need this app!

With Context you can generate a contact from any information you can paste. From any piece of text Context automatically picks out any and all: addresses, phone numbers, emails and websites, disregarding the rest of the text, and adds it to a contact for you. Address fields are looked up on the internet so they’re always complete with the fields in the correct order, regardless of if they’re present in the original text or not!

You could use it to:
•Look up and save an address someone has sent you in a text
•Update your friend’s contact information from their email signature
•Store a businesses contact details from the contact page of their website
The possibilities are endless…. (providing they’re to do with contact creation from text)

If you’ve only got part of an address, don’t worry, Context looks up addresses over the internet and adds any missing information and you can even view a map of the location straight out of Context.

Context is totally free to use and fully functioning, albeit with adverts, for the creation of up to three contacts. If you’ve found Context useful please unlock the full version via the in-app upgrade and aid continued development of the app.

What's New in Version 1.1

Context has been revamped and improved:

There are now new indicators the show what information types have been discovered, that even work as you're writing.

The contextual menus have been made smarter and more streamlined.

We've made it easier and more obvious how to manually select an address if the automatic detection fails.

We've added some extra help to make the app much easier to understand and use.

We've added iCloud support to sync your settings and limits across devices.

we've fixed a few pesky bugs and made lots of other minor tweaks and improvements, too trivial to mention specifically.
