Google Contacts

Google Contacts stores and organizes contact information for those you communicate with and the Stony Brook Directory. Contacts can contain basic information-like names, email addresses, and phone numbers-or extended information, like physical addresses, employers, departments, job titles, or custom notes. Contacts sync with the other Google Apps (Gmail, Drive, Calendar, Hangouts) and mobile devices so you have easy access from anywhere.
