Circleback, has brought out an app that automatically grabs the details from the email signatures within the emails from your inbox and allows you to save them as contacts on your phone.
According to Manoj Ramnani, the CEO and founder of Circleback, ContactSaver is “the most efficient and the easiest to use way to save contact signatures from your Gmail to your address book.”
“We train the system using an AI engine to recognize what an email signature looks like,” he says. “It’s initially trained by the data scientists here and then, as it gets more and more users, it keeps learning. That way as companies change their branding standards, etc., and ultimately their signature formats, it stays ahead of this and understands what the data is.”
The app is quite easy to use. You just connect your Gmail account to ContactSaver and then check off the addresses it identifies, if you want to save them to your address book. Then you press the “Save” button and you’re done. While Evercontact does an effective job at handling this process for you automatically, ContactSaver makes more sense for those who want slightly more control over who ends up in their phone address book.
ContactSaver is free, the monetization comes from charging businesses to have the ability to integrate with their CRM systems. Future plans for the company inlcude releasing Contact Intelligence, which will update your information in other peoples’ address books when your email signature details change.

The new ContactSaver app is free on iTunes.
