VIPorbit: Advanced Contact Management for Business Professionals
If I could give one app a "best in show" award, it would be VIPorbit for iPad. For well over two decades, Act! has been a premier contact-management solution for PC users. This software is used worldwide by executives, salespeople, entrepreneurs, small business operators, and many others for managing contacts, scheduling, and to-do lists simultaneously. Unfortunately, Act! isn't available for the Mac, and the PC software doesn't export or sync content easily to an iOS device.
However, at Macworld, the co-creator of this groundbreaking software was showing off the new VIPorbit for the iPad, which offers even more capabilities than Act! in an iPad-specific, standalone app that will revolutionize how people manage their contacts and schedules on a mobile device.
Soon to be available from the Apple App Store from VIPorbit Software International, VIPorbit is a full-featured contact manager that's easy to use, yet extremely versatile, customizable, and powerful. From this single, well-designed app, you can access your personal contacts database (far more detailed than the iPad's built-in Contacts app), work with your calendar and to-do lists, maintain detailed and date-stamped notes about your interactions with customers or clients, and quickly generate reports summarizing relationship details.
Act! users will quickly discover that VIPorbit offers a comprehensive and mobile solution for contact management that's vastly superior to any competing apps on the market. VIPorbit rivals the capabilities of the Act! software on the PC. In the future, a Mac version of VIPorbit will also be released.
VIPorbit is a must-have app for mobile business professionals and salespeople alike. It can easily be customized for use in a wide range of industries. This app imports data from iCal, Contacts, Google Calendar, Facebook, Twitter, and other apps.
The initial version of VIPorbit for iPad contains some bugs and technical issues. However, the company is working on a more stable version that's sure to live up to the expectations of ACT! users. Meanwhile, the iPhone version (though less feature-packed) also works on the iPad.
Although the annual MacWorld/iWorld has traditionally been a trade show centered around Apple's Mac OS X desktop and laptop computers, the show has evolved to be more consumer-oriented, and now focuses heavily on iOS devices as well.
