InTouchApp, a smart app for automatic phone contact backup, sync and transfer, has raised an undisclosed sum in first round of funding from Blume Ventures.

With this funding, the Pune-bases startup aims to improve the product.

InTouchApp was founded in 2012 by Sarang Lakare, a PhD in Computer Science.

The app helps users solve contacts-related problems such as backup, sync, and enables them to share phone contacts with another person easily and securely. Once you install the app and log in, the app will automatically back up your contacts. You can now access the contacts across all your devices.

The app is available on iOS, Android, WindowsPhone and Blackberry.

InTouchApp claims to have over 2.5 million downloads globally and manages over 1.3 billion contacts. Apart from India, its user-base is spread across 190 countries like the US, the UK, Germany and Indonesia.

InTouchApp was incubated at the Microsoft India Accelerator programme.

“I was once travelling with friends. After a full day excursion, when we decided to call our cab driver to head back, I discovered my phone battery was dead. It would have been really handy then if I could access my contacts on my friend’s phone,” said Lakare, talking about the motivation to start the venture.

Karthik Reddy, Managing Partner, Blume, said: “While Sarang had already built a robust product, the next phase is extremely exciting for us – where it moves from utility to a private social network in small organisations and teams. The ability to share and add relevant network seamlessly in a mobile centric era is what InTouch will solve. The hole left by LinkedIn is ours to fill.”
