Nobex Contacts Beta Scans Your Emails For Contact Information

NObex Contacts NObex Contacts2

Nobex Technologies is well known for their Nobex Radio streaming service and apps. It seems like they have extended a bit beyond that with a new Nobex Contacts service that showed up in App World. Jason pointed out the service (via which scans your incoming email for new address or contact details in signatures and adds it to your address book. Some of you may realize that there are a few services that already do something like this with the most popular being Gwabbit.

I am not sure what made Nobex decide this is the time to launch a contacts scanner app but early reports are saying it works well. I am still just as hung up about the service scanning all of your incoming emails on their servers but their privacy policy might assuage your concerns. They also have a manual mode which only processes emails you manually send to Nobex’s servers.

Check out Nobex Contacts in App World or at They seem to be in beta until the end of September and it looks like it will be free until then.

  1. Hi Ronen, Nobex here.

    Thanks for the review.

    Two points to make:
    1. The free version will remain free. The beta is for our enterprise server. We’ll make it clearer on our site.
    2. Nobex Contacts is our new version. gwabbit was also an application in the Nobex App World account. Note that it’s no longer in App World under our account.


  2. A shame that contact can’t be scanned on the phone itself. This is worst than Siri 😉
