Featured by Apple as "New and Noteworthy", Spring Cleaning is the best way to organize your address book on your iPhone, iPod Touch, or iPad. It's also the perfect hiding place for a secret stash of contacts. Using Spring Cleaning, you can quickly and easily select multiple contacts, delete them, and then restore them at any time.

Apple's Contacts app requires you to perform 5 steps for each and every contact that you delete, and all deletions are permanent. This app changes that, once and for all.

But don't take our word for it - here's what the media says:

Josh Helfferich, Founder, The Digeratii Network: “Smooth, simple, and does its job very well. Apple should have shipped the iPhone with Spring Cleaning. My highest recommendations.”

Yaakov Ort, Managing Director, New York Times: “It’s so great to see an app plug a hole left behind by Apple. Deletion and restoration of multiple contacts was a weak spot in iOS. Spring Cleaning fits into that gap beautifully.”

Milind Alvares, Smoking Apples: “Spring Cleaning is an oddly useful app that helps you rapidly clear unwanted contacts from your iOS device. It’s better than using your Mac to mass-manage contacts.”

Federico Viticci, Editor-in-chief, MacStories.net: “Spring Cleaning finally brings proper contact organization to the iPhone. Your address book needs this, so please — just go buy it.”

If you're tired of scrolling through contacts you'll never call while you hunt for the ones that matter, then Spring Cleaning can help you turn over a new leaf, whether you want to hide romantic connections, purge unneeded business contacts, or simply get rid of duplicate entries from a bad sync.

Features include:
- Quickly and easily select and delete multiple contacts
- Restore deleted contacts from Trash
- Empty Trash (permanently delete contacts)
- View a contact's details
- Search your contact list (or the Trash)
- Toggle view between "all" and "selected"
- Select all contacts at once (for the very bold: work backwards and spare only those you want to keep)
