Plaxo is a free online address book wherein you can add unlimited number of contacts without having fear of losing them. It offers various services that carry out personal info synchronization and auto-maintenance. You are required to instruct Plaxo as to where you want to store contacts, or additional personal information, and it automatically synchronizes all together. The most attractive part in Plaxo is that you do not need to make efforts of updating other people’s information time and again. Plaxo itself lets them update their own information. And if people make even a single change in their information, Plaxo intelligently edits the same in your address-book as well.
You can search for people just by entering their AOL Instant Messenger name or e-mail address. Thereafter, when you click a button, you will find that they are added to your address book, thereby syncing with other address books, such as Google, Yahoo, Hotmail, Outlook, AOL, Mac, and other popular tools.
In order to get access to Plaxo, you are required to sign-up for the same. It takes just a few seconds to sign-up.
