Contacts Journal for iPhone and iPad updated [giveaway]

Contacts Journal for iPhone and Contacts Journal HD for iPad have updated with calendar integration and new badges. This Contacts Relationship Management (CRM) app is like having a diary and to-do list for each of your contacts, all in one app.

  • Log all your interactions with your contacts; review them to prepare for the next meeting
  • Add To-Dos for your contacts to remind yourself of important upcoming events and follow-up steps
  • To-Dos support adding local alarms, repeating events, and adding to your iPhone Calendar
  • View all your Logs and To-Dos across all contacts, sorted by date
  • Export your data for reporting by AirPrint, email, CSV or even to your iPhone Contact notes field
  • Call, SMS or email your contacts directly from the app, and
  • Save to DropBox from one device, and Fetch from DropBox on another, to easily transfer data

The update features are:

  • Calendar integration! Now you can add your To-Do item to your iPhone / iPad calendar!
  • Icon badges! See a count of your To-Do items right on the icon, on your home-screen.
  • Contact badges! See a count for the number of Logs and To-Dos attached to your contact. Great for quickly browsing through your list to see who you have already entered information for, and who you haven't.
  • Badges on the More tab-bar for unsaved DropBox changes. This will help remind you to save your changes to DropBox frequently.

The good folks at zaal have given us a few promo codes to give away to you, our awesome readers! For a chance to win, let us know how many contacts you have and which version you prefer: Contacts Journal or Contacts Journal HD.
