I have two applications A and B. A refers to a external application and B refers to the application that is being used. User can sync contacts from A to B or B to A.

I decided to show it in tab format but it seems pretty confusing. What is the possible way to show it without creating confusion. I have attached a screenshot to get a clear picture of what i am talking about 1

If B is the main application and A is external application. The process can be called Push (B to A) and Pull (A to B). You can be more descriptive by using the real names such as Push contact to A, and Pull contacts from B.

Here's a screenshot of Google's mobile version, but it only perform the syncing process without showing any data:
