User reviews of Better Contacts
Works perfectly on my Droid X with Android 2.2. Does everything as advertised and much more flexible than stock. Not sure what the problem was for previous reviewer. I have no problem editing information...just press menu...edit and you can do anything you can do in stock. Edit: Although I like the app, my contacts list is up to 254 contacts and I've assigned pictures to almost all of them. It takes 8 to 10 seconds for the list to refresh and load upon opening which is unbearable. Speed it up and I'll be back.

Sorts European letters correctly. But the dealbreaker was that it does not read your own lists of contact groups when you want to apply filtering

Bought Better Contacts in October. Very happy with it. In order to solve a problem with syncing Google Calendars, had to make what had been my primary Gmail account (the one with which I purchased Better Contacts) into a secondary account. To do this, I had to do a factory reset on the phone (Samsung Galaxy S). Is there a way for me to recover Better Contacts?

Unable to download, foe a $5 add you need a lot of info that is excessive. Typical Android

I just bought this, installed it and it appears to work great. Now if I could only get rid of the Contacts icon that Verizon has permanently glued to the bottom of each screen ;=}

What a shame... I'm very disappointed. The good thing is that it sorts by company. But the directory rows are way too narrow for a phone app and the contact picture does not appear in the directory. Each row should have the company name on top with person's name below -- these should not be inline.

Program works just fine - except sorting by company takes forever.

Best contacts app This App solves the Google contacts biggest downfall... Being able to organize contacts by company! Now, if I could only have this on my PC also.

YES!! It Works! Bought a Verizon Galaxy S3 a few days ago and quickly found that my contacts did not list correctly. I have a bunch of business contacts and need to separate them from social contacts. I had a method that worked with Google Contacts - use the "file as" field, but this field is ignored by the stock S3 software. Hunted for 3 days, looking for a contact manager that would display by more than just first name or last name. Tried about 8 different possibilities, but they all either a) didn't really work (searching is not the same as sorting) or b) were huge programs that replaced contacts, dialers and messaging. ================= I just needed to be able to sort contacts on Display Name. YAY!! Better Contacts did that almost perfectly. (It actually uses a slightly different sort order for special characters - period, parens, pound and some others - than does Google, but I made it work.) Now my contacts sort correctly on the desktop and on the mobile. PROBLEM SOLVED. ================= Room for improvement: ability to slide up and down on the letters scale beside the contact entries. A minor thing.
