ContactShark 1.0 for iPhone – Bringing LinkedIn and Jigsaw together in a free app

Infuze Mobile announces ContactShark v 1.0, a new FREE iPhone app which completes a contact’s LinkedIn profile with email addresses and phone numbers from Jigsaw.

PRLog - July 24, 2011 - FREMONT, Calif. -- More and more business professionals are using social networks to build relationships, meet new contacts, and market themselves. LinkedIn operates the world’s largest professional social network with more than 100 million members. LinkedIn provides the email address only to first level connections for a non-paid subscriber and phone numbers when the contact has added it to their profile.

Jigsaw, a Salesforce company, provides that complementary service to obtain the phone numbers and email addresses of contacts. Jigsaw is the world's largest database of up-to-date contact information with 28 million business contacts and over 36,000 contacts added or edited daily. Every Jigsaw business contact is complete with a phone, position, company, mailing address, and business email address.

“Critical contact data is fragmented across multiple social networks making it difficult for a sales, marketing or recruitment professional to research any contact especially when they are on the go. “said Bharath Natarajan, CEO of Infuze Mobile.

ContactShark provides a unique mash-up between the two services where a user can search for a contact in LinkedIn and find the same contact in Jigsaw, if available, and purchase the email address and phone number using their Jigsaw points, all in one free app on the iPhone or iPod touch. Users can call/email/sms, send LinkedIn invites and messages, Google search, save the contact data to their iPhone and much more.

“ContactShark has feature rich modules for both LinkedIn and Jigsaw, both of which on their own can be very useful apps. ContactShark enhances both services by providing valuable integration between them for professionals on the go.” adds Natarajan.

Features of ContactShark 1.0 for iPhone include:

- Contact keyword search
