iPad Address Book

It is time to discuss about the iPad Address Book. The iOS App, better known as Contacts lets you add, edit and delete contacts from your address book and share contacts among iOS devices (provided that iCloud is enabled).

Contacts is integrated with other Apps on iPad. This means that from the Contacts App you can share a contact with another person, send an email message or even FaceTime with this person.
