An app to automatically update your phonebook


Are you tired of keying in the details everytime someone in your contact list changes phone numbers or address? Help is at your hand.

6Degrees, a startup, has developed a self-updating phonebook for your smartphone that verifies and updates contact details on its own.

Developed by Niranjan Rao, a former Singapore-based investment banker, and Arun Samudrala, a Bangalore-based engineer, 6degrees is like a social network within your phone book.

With this app, users can update their contact details and share it with trusted friends and the friend’s phone automatically updates the new number. People will be able to access all connections from across networks in a private manner.

6degrees recently bagged a deal from Lava, maker of Xolo handsets, to make 6degrees the default phone book in its mobiles.

The app has been made available in seven languages including Portuguese, Spanish, Arabic, Chinese, Japanese, Korean and English. It has options to keep contacts private, and to hide from other users on the network.

The company claims to have 7 million contacts on its database from 14,500 users
