Contacts replacement

#1

I need to know if it is possible to replace the iOS Contacts app with a custom app that handles both inbound and outbound calls and texts?

By which I mean - when a call or text is received, the user’s name displays in the call, and the phone number displays in the Contacts app. I want to replace the Contacts app there with one of my own making.

Recent calls would not display a phone number from the Contacts app or its replacement, only the caller’s name or “Unknown”

Is this possible?

Hi @dwhite,
You can create an alternative Contacts app that can save contact data etc, however you would not get the ability to hook into the system. There is a CallKit that can allow you to use VoIP and integrate like Whatsapp or any other of these third party options.

cheers,
