    STL Contacts Manager It's very seldom that you find an app which encourages you to try out the tutorial version first, before it suggests you download and purchase the app. For that, STL Contacts Manager wins our vote. The app goes by the tagline - what if your address book could perform according to the way you use your iPhone and allow you to eliminate extra steps and repetition when organizing your contacts? This app features quick launch, single click contacting, smart keypad, blast email, create contacts fast, integrated functions and more.
