New "Fetch My Contacts" App is a Must-Have for Every Phone

The app lets users securely access their phone contacts via the internet, so a lost phone or dead battery is no longer a problem. Users can just borrow someone else's phone and log in to to pull up their contacts and make whatever calls they need to make.

Of the 750 phone numbers in my phone, I only knew four of them by heart, so I was never able to contact anyone when my battery was dead. This app completely solves that problem.

For everyone whose memory is less than that of Dustin Hoffman's character in the movie "Rainman," remembering more than a handful of phone numbers is next to impossible. To solve this problem, a new app has been developed that is sure to be a lifesaver in more ways than one.

The app, Fetch My Contacts, permanently stores all of a user's contacts so that they can be easily downloaded to a new phone with the click of a button. This will lead to a lot less of those group e-mails and Facebook posts from people who lost their phones and are desperately seeking everyone's phone numbers. Of course, even if someone did have a perfect photographic memory, this app would easily pay for itself by saving them the eight hours it would take to manually enter all of those contacts into a new phone.

And unlike all of the "clouds" that nobody can understand how to use, this information is not shared with anyone else. Nobody else can mistakenly access the user's contacts or accidentally delete them. More importantly, the data can be downloaded to and from any make or model phone. This means that users with Fetch My Contacts can switch from a Droid to an iPhone, or vice versa, and instantly have all of their old contacts on their new phone.

But none of these valuable features are why Fetch My Contacts was developed in the first place, according to the two University of Alabama students who created

"My phone battery was always dying, so I never had any way to call someone to come pick me up or to tell them where to meet me," said co-founder Tyler Chambers. "We realized that there was a serious need for a solution to this problem because so many students rely on their phones to call others for rides home -- especially late at night -- and that's precisely when most phone batteries have given out. No parent wants their son or daughter stranded at a concert or on spring break with no way of contacting anyone to help them, so we want parents to see Fetch My Contacts as the modern day 'buddy system' for their children."

Co-founder Halley Lewis recited a long list of instances in his past when Fetch My Contacts would be have been worth its weight in gold and saved him from long walks home or missed opportunities. "The worst thing about it," said Lewis, "was that I knew having a phone book or calling 411 was useless. The only way to get the numbers for my friends' cell phones was from my contacts. I couldn't even remember my own sister's number off the top of my head, so that's when I realized that we had to come up with some way to fix this problem."

At less than a penny a day, Fetch My Contacts offers a combination of insurance, convenience and safety that makes it a must-have for every cell phone user. The app is available for both Android and iPhone users, and can be easily downloaded from
