Best Contact Managers for Android

By Steve McFarlane

A good contact manager will allow you to manage a group of contacts whether they are host on Gmail, an Exchange server or a bulk mailing service such as iContact. In addition, you should be able to add or delete contacts, or easily message an entire group of contacts. Here are some Android contact managers that will allow you to do these and more.

DW Contacts & Phone

Once you have the app installed you will be able to manage (create, edit, copy, change and delete) a single or multiple contacts at once. With its support for local, Gmail and Exchange accounts, it is possible to copy contacts from Gmail to an Exchange account, and visa versa.

DW Contact not only allows for the management of groups but how you interact with contacts as well. For instance, you can use the batch mode to send SMS, MMS and emails to one or multiple contacts, groups, organizations and titles.

Searches can also be done on contact attributes such as name, phone number, organization, notes, address, email, relationships, websites, and birthday. With these powerful features it’s easy to send a happy birthday note to a friend, or a status update to a group of co-workers. QR Code

GO Contacts

GO Contacts is a powerful contact manager that is an ideal replacement for the stock Android Contact and Dialer apps. Some of its best features include the ability to do fast searches, group management, merge duplicate contacts and perform secure backups and recoveries. Most notable features of this Android contact manager are as follows:

  • Search for contacts by letter, name or keyword
  • Send batch SMS or email to a Group
  • Merge duplicated contacts
  • Backup/restore contacts to SD card

iContact App for Android

This app comes from the well-respected autoresponder software provider called iContact. You can use the app to manage mailing list and message entire lists as well. You won’t be able to use the app to created and install email capture forms and more advanced autoresponder management tasks, but it is a great way to send out a quick email, enter a new contact into a mailing list and review stats and graphs on how your email marketing campaign is performing.

  • Share pictures/camera through Email with groups

Other Android Contact Managers

Of course there are other contact managers, but the above-mentioned are among the very best. Nonetheless, you will be able to use apps such as ‘Contact Remover’ to easily remove contacts that you don’t need, and those you don’t know. It is especially useful for deleting the many email contacts that Gmail usually imports to you Android device.

Speaking of Gmail, it is also a sort of contact manager, in that it will automatically sync your contacts with the Google mail service, thus creating a backup for you.
