Every year or so I seek advice on software tools to manage contacts, so I'm writing to ask you what you love. I still haven't found anything that works for me consistently, so I just let it slide into Google Contacts and occasional spreadsheets, and my unreliable BRAIN.

I'm looking for a CRM/contact management system to store humans and info about them. Ideally it has some social media integrations so I can cross reference folks' LinkedIn, Twitter, FB, etc profiles. I want to be able to tag and group folks for later searching. I have to have a mobile interface (iOS). And it should be possible for others on my team to add/edit people.

I'm willing to invest some significant time in porting my contacts into a system if it's something I can build on. I've had some bad experiences in the past with Salesforce (needed software engineering experience to customize) and High Rise (years ago just felt so so whack). 

So, internet, what you got now? Who is making this syncing, updating, repository of the Most Important Assets We Have (Soylent Green) work best nowadays?

Contactually hands down. The app for my phone knows when I call or text someone on my list of people to keep in contact with. Brilliant.

it was really nice of these people on twitter to explain "I'm Dreaming Of A White Christmas" to me over and over and over again. They really care, and I find that sweet.
