People app help

The People app is your address book and your social app all in one. You can add your contacts and keep in touch with friends and family on Skype—all from a single app.

Home screen of the People app

The People, Mail, and Calendar apps work together. So when you email a contact from Mail, the app picks up that person's email address from the People app (which is where their contact info lives).
