I’ve mentioned a number of libraries for working with the address book most recently a library allowing you to populate the address book with dummy data for development purposes, and a library for loading and filtering address book data.

Here’s a handy library submitted by Joe Laws for mapping the iOS address book to core data entities called JLAddressBook.

To use JLAddressBook you need to create an entity type that conforms to the contact data, create a contact manager, and then run the helper methods to update your address book.

A fulle xmple is included to demonstrate how this is done.

You can find JLAddressBook on Github here.

A nice library for working with the address book.
