Featured by Apple as "New and Noteworthy", Spring Cleaning is the best way to organize your address book on your iPhone, iPod Touch, or iPad. It's also the perfect hiding place for a secret stash of contacts. Using Spring Cleaning, you can quickly and easily select multiple contacts, delete them, and then restore them at any time.
Apple's Contacts app requires you to perform 5 steps for each and every contact that you delete, and all deletions are permanent. This app changes that, once and for all.
But don't take our word for it - here's what the media says:
Josh Helfferich, Founder, The Digeratii Network: “Smooth, simple, and does its job very well. Apple should have shipped the iPhone with Spring Cleaning. My highest recommendations.”
Yaakov Ort, Managing Director, New York Times: “It’s so great to see an app plug a hole left behind by Apple. Deletion and restoration of multiple contacts was a weak spot in iOS. Spring Cleaning fits into that gap beautifully.”
Milind Alvares, Smoking Apples: “Spring Cleaning is an oddly useful app that helps you rapidly clear unwanted contacts from your iOS device. It’s better than using your Mac to mass-manage contacts.”
Federico Viticci, Editor-in-chief, MacStories.net: “Spring Cleaning finally brings proper contact organization to the iPhone. Your address book needs this, so please — just go buy it.”
If you're tired of scrolling through contacts you'll never call while you hunt for the ones that matter, then Spring Cleaning can help you turn over a new leaf, whether you want to hide romantic connections, purge unneeded business contacts, or simply get rid of duplicate entries from a bad sync.

What's New in Version 1.1.2
Critical bug fixed. For real this time. We promise!
Worked Really Great:)
I tried deleting a contact from my list but it didnt let me it did but everytime i return to the contacts list i see the name appear again and i have to keep on deleting it and still didnt let me.. So then i heard of this app called Spring Cleaning nd right when i downloaded it i opened it nd deleted the contact i really wanted gone from my contact list nd in just 10 seconds the contact was completely deleted. So to make sure i went bak to my contact list and it wasnt there as well:)
Great app this is and thank you😄.
Some how, I think via iCloud, my wife's iPhone Contacts got merged with mine. I turned off iCloud for Contacts on both devices and deleted all using this app. Worked great. Then used MCBackupPro to reinstall them. Lucky I had MCBackup and backed up my contacts on both devices. Only negative is this app runs slow during the delete process. Takes many minutes to delete 300 contacts. Like watching paint dry.
Good if used properly
I was a little hesitant to download because of the negative reviews but the app worked well. To use you gotta turn off iCloud syncing for contacts in the setting (that's why people were complaint about having double contacts). I deleted over 100 contacts with ease. Worth the 99 cents.
