Handheld Contact is simply the best way to carry the power of ACT! in your pocket. It works with Apple, Android and Blackberry smartphones and tablets (although unfortunately not with Windows Phone 8 yet) and the most recent versions of ACT!. Once you set it up it works behind the scenes to ensure that the data on your phone or tablet is kept up to date and that anything you do while out of the office is automatically updated to your ACT! database.

Handheld Contact is sold on an annual contract basis at $99 per user. It will be available through our online shop shortly, but in the meantime you can order it by sending an email to .

Here is a comparison of the features available on the various smartphones.
