Contact Lookup

Contact Lookup


This is an extension to the Android search facility that lets you search your contacts.

Whilst Android includes a native contact search, it will only search for names, and not parts of numbers or addresses (although it's getting better with each OS upgrade)

Contact Lookup will look in MOST of the contact category fields for your search terms, although it doesn't search Notes.

Includes powerful search modes including a true AND search that works across categories.

THERE IS A PAID VARIANT, full details of which can be found on the developers website (click the link below if browsing through the market). The free version is considered to be 'feature complete' and will NOT be updated, whereas the paid version enjoys the regular addition of new features.

User reviews of Contact Lookup
Not bad but I thought it was a dialer too. Android has number search if you use the dial pad or sms app. Also no reasonable sort order to search results. Powerful though if deep search is needed.

Am sorry but i don't get it. why make a super complete contact looker without auto-complete or gradual search how you call it. Also not clear the difference between Pro and Fast. I think GO Contact is better.

Yes! I can search other fields! Thank you so much for this! I don't understand why this is not (an option) in the other full-fledged contact apps. Or in the stock app, for that matter. However simple or difficult it may be, you did it just right! Thank you! I was giving people names like: Peter Sellers Actor 140 World Trade... so... thanks for giving these people back their christian names! a big help, really!

Ok It's good for searching your own contacts but I'm looking for an app that will search for businesses or people and auto add all the info like address, phone, and add photo to my Android contacts. Kind of like FB when it syncs to contacts.
