I’m sure everyone has had this simple idea before: keeping all that contact information in sync irrespective of whether it’s in your computer address book, mail address book, your mobile, your social network site etc. Well, Soocial is in a Dutch start-up in private beta right now and is aimed at exactly that: supporting over 400 models of mobile phone as well as Gmail, Highrise, Mac address book… You can allow other applications to use your contacts without passing on Soocial specific details using OAuth — natch.

I’m also just loving the punning visual design that Soocial uses — whether it’s a Knightrider star and pop icon to symbolise hassle-free synchronisation, or Sean Connery’s pistol-toting, nappy-wearing rendition of Zed in in Zardoz to show that something went wrong. Wonderful.

    Hey man, thanks for the write up!

    Also thanks for spotting the movie that picture of Sean Connery was from, we couldn’t for the life of us find it. We owe you one now that we can finally watch that!

    Hi Stefan

    Graag gedaan. Zardoz wasn’t that great a movie, but it was worth it for that one picture.
