Review: DW Contact Manager for Android

By Steve McFarlane

Once you have the app installed you will be able to manage a single or multiple contacts, groups, organizations with the ability to create, edit, copy, change and delete contacts.  The app supports local, Gmail and Exchange accounts, so you can copy contacts from Gmail to an Exchange account, or visa versa.

Managing Android Contacts

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, emails to one or multiple contacts, groups, organizations and titles.

Users can search all their contacts using attributes such as name, phone number, organization, notes, address, email, relationships, websites, birthday, and sort them by name or nickname to allow for easier searching. With these powerful features it’s incredible easy to send a happy birthday wish to a friend, or an email to a group of co-workers who are working on a special project with you.

Other notable features include:

  • The ability to set ring tones for single and multiple contacts, groups, organizations and titles
  • The option to create home-screen shortcuts for contacts, groups, organizations, titles)
  • Manage and receive event notifications relating to your contacts, i.e. birthdays and anniversaries
  • Support for lunar calendar format
  • Call filter (blocking calls on free definable date- and time range)
  • Send SMS, email
  • Extended incoming call view (show organization, group, notes)
    fully integrated phone (dialer)
  • Display call history on dialer
  • Share (text, vcard, call log)

Without a doubt this is one of the best Android contact managers for replacing the stock contact manager. If you go with the free version you will have the following limitations though:

  • Advertiser messages/ads
  • Multi-select limited to 5 items per action
  • Background service for contact-events-notification (reminder for birthday)
