Contacts Import


Ever wanted to import your contacts from Microsoft Outlook onto your phone with a few simple clicks? Or wanted to quickly transfer your contacts from one Android phone to another? Then this app is your answer!

This app is the Swiss Army knife for Android contacts with all the features you will ever need in a small highly optimised app with no evil cloud syncing. With this app you will never have to give your contacts to Google, Yahoo, or any other Cloud service again. Your contacts will remain confidential to you.

Multi-language fully supported including all common localised codepages (from US & Western Europe to Eastern Europe to China and Japan) and also UTF, so you get your contact information exactly how it should be on the phone.

Features
=======
- Import contacts from a CSV file
- Backup and Restore Contacts
- Export contacts from any account to a CSV file
- Delete contacts and groups from any account
- View contacts and groups from any account
- Comprehensive in-app logging.

This app requires no internet permissions. Your contacts will never be shared and will always remain fully in your control. See below for a list and explanation of the permissions required by this app.

Please try the lite version first which gives you all the features but limits them to 50 contacts. It does not have any annoying ads. Please purchase this full version for all these great features with support for up to 5,000 contacts.

Excellent What a bargain! ...this app is worth way more money than the asking price. This is my first review, and I only wrote it because I am so impressed. This works brilliantly with a simple user interface, I use CSV files with many unwanted fields, select only the fields I want in the 'Mapping' option, and assign them to a contact detail such as first name, suburb, email etc. This is a great app, clean simple and functional. You will get your money back in the time it saves you quicker than it took for me to write this review!

Used only for Import & Delete so far. Paid version is worth the $1.66! I transferred 207 contacts in .csv format with ease in a few seconds. I choose to ignore the header (line 1) and picked category from a drop down list (name, home, work, mobile, etc.). I was not able to see my external memory card from the app, but the on line help indicates I should be able to see it. Maybe my particular (tracfone) phone? I put the .csv file in the internal storage downloads area and it worked fine.

Awesome Before this app I used to use free cloud contacts sync services and wondered why I got so much spam. I now use this great little app to import my contacts from CSV and all my contacts are kept completely private. The other great thing about this app is that it keeps my professional contacts in a separate account away from Google accounts so they are never synced back to the cloud. It has default settings to allow easy import from Outlook produced CSVs, but you can customise to import from any email program. If you prefer to manage your contacts in private on your desktop rather than on a phone then this is the app for you.
