You turned me on to something. I began Googling and found some interesting things. I hadn't been using my iPhone contacts except to look up old number "write them down" (duh) and enter them into the dialpad on Skype (I have SkypeOut). Turns out you can make contacts in the iPhone use Skype: https://iphone-tricks.com/tutorial/5372-default-app-for-outgoing-calls You can also sync Evernote contacts with iPhone: https://www.google.com/search?hl=en&ei=xrP1XJiOPOuQr7wPrZ6CiA0&q=sync+evernote+contacts+with+iphone&oq=sync+evernote+contacts+with+iphone&gs_l=psy-ab.3..0i22i30.58066.69415..69610...3.0..0.166.4192.13j24......0....1..gws-wiz.......0i71j35i39j0i67j0j0i20i263j0i8i13i30j33i22i29i30j0i13i30.hDLx56D39gU#kpvalbx=1 You can also sync contacts in multiple devices using iCloud: https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT205754 So the solution seems to be to use the iPhone contacts as the primary and set it up to dial out using Skype.
I have recently discovered Evernote and it is quickly becoming the app I use to manage everything. I'm a teacher and currently inputting tons of info into my notes. I also want to use a notebook for contacts. I watched a video that discussed scanning business cards with the Scannable app and it looks great. There was a green phone icon displayed next to the phone number in the note that when clicked initiates a phone call. A couple of years ago I gave up my cell phone provider in favor of a much cheaper and more mobile solution: Skype and a Data Only SIM. I make all phone calls through Skype. I need that green icon to initiate a call in Skype. There must be some way to do that. Even my phone contacts can't dial through Skype. That is a down side to using Skype. I have to either dial a Skype Contact or use the dialpad and type the number. If anyone can help to integrate Evernote with Skype that would be really awesome.
