Managing your user’s contacts from their device’s address book can be tedious, particularly if the list is large. Onymos makes it easy.


Tools for contact management, done right.

With common manipulations included in the Onymos Contacts component, you never have to worry about contacts again.

Flexible filtering

The Onymos Contacts component provides a wide variety of controls to filter contacts. Some examples include a) Contacts with email addresses, b) Contacts with phone numbers, c) Contacts with profile photos, d) Contacts with First name beginning with, e) Contacts with Last name beginning with and a combination of these filters.

Only pull what’s required

Contacts provides you controls to retrieve only a listed set of attributes as specified. This improves search, retrieval, memory footprint, and performance in your app. For example, if your app does not have a need to display profile photos, you can set the attributes to not load up the contacts’ profile photos into memory, significantly improving search and retrieval times.

Infinite, bi-directional scrolling

Contacts intelligently loads Contacts in blocks of records. As the user scrolls down (or up) through the list, the component pre-fetches additional data seamlessly. Plus it can remove older data record blocks if memory gets tight or if the user is a super-scroller. All within the developer’s control, but without the developer having to build it.

Test to 22,000+

Are your customers popular? 22,000 contacts popular? Many tools and plugins work great on 100 names, but 1,000? 10,000? 22,000? Onymos has built-in the intelligence needed to manage data pulls and in-memory manipulations to keep your app (and our component) from locking up when the going gets tough.

Contact management made easy

The simplest, fastest way to add an address book or incorporate contacts.

Match the look

Front-end configuration via standard HTML/CSS ensures the Contacts Feature fits seamlessly into your existing project.

Full stack

Unlike plugins or code snippets, each Onymos Feature is full stack, from the user interface to the cloud layer.

No looking back

Onymos supports the Feature at every stage. Updates are as simple as rebuilding with our newest object release.

function getContactsList() {
        function getContactsListSuccess (listOfContactsArray) {
            /* ------
                listOfContactsArray[] = {
                   // Array of Contacts
                   // Fields as requested in options.displayFields
                }; ------ */
        function getContactsListFailure (error) {
} /* end function getContactsList */
