Y Combinator alumni Everyme is making sure you’re never missing information from your address book again. In order to do this, the company closed a $1.5 million round of funding from a slew of big name investors including Andreessen-Horowitz, CrunchFund, Greylock Partners, Tencent, SV Angel, and others.
Mobile address books are a little cumbersome. You have to input or upload a lot of information, but it never really feels fleshed out. Some contacts don’t have full names, others are missing e-mails, or pictures. Contact information and salient details about friends are often spread thin between address books, social networks, e-mails, and more.
According to TechCrunch, Everyme plans to release an iPhone app in November aimed at changing how you keep your contacts. It starts by uploading your contacts to the app and connecting your various social networks to Everyme. The app then takes the contact information and pairs it with whatever it can spider across the social networks. Thus, your address book will soon be plentifully populated with birthdays, full first and last names, e-mails, phone numbers, places of work, pictures, hometowns, and much more. You can even access information that isn’t usually associated with an address book such as events and relationship statuses.
The funding also marks another investment for Michael Arrington’s CrunchFund, which was recently formed in early September.
The app is not currently available, but the company is accepting early signups.
