/// Ringya Makes Organizing Mobile Contact Lists Easier

You’d think contact lists would be a hard field to break into: they’ve been a part of mobile gadgetry since the days of the very first PDA, in 1984. And yet, contacts still have room to grow. Enter Ringya , an iPhone app which promises to add a layer of context on top of our sprawling lists of coworkers, club members, parent groups, and so on. It works like this: instead of sorting everyone by name, Ringya files contacts into “rings.” You can share a “ring” with others, meaning the contact info of everyone on the list can be ported from one phone to another in one step. (Ringya made the list you see to the right before we talked and shared it with me. And no, I have no idea why they gave my coworkers formal prefixes). Then, if someone who’s sharing the ring adds a new contact, all users will see the new person in the list when they look at the app. Gal Nachum, Ringya’s co-founder, calls this “inherent virality,” since using the mobile app normally spreads its reach. If a Ringya user shares their ring with someone who’s not a user, the second person gets a personalized text message asking them to download the app. Unfortunately for some potential users (especially those without iPhones, although an Android version of the app is on the way ), this means the organized contact lists are accessible only through the app.
