DescriptionThis is an extension to the Android search facility that lets you search for any contact details.
NOTE: This application is NO LONGER BEING DEVELOPED, purchase Contact Lookup Fast instead (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.softwyer.contactsearchfast). See below for more information.
Whilst Android includes a native contact search, it will only search for names, and not parts of numbers or addresses.

This application uses Google's licensing service which will check after 7 days to validate the license. You will need an internet connection to enable this check. If the check fails, the application will run in reduced functionality mode.
Contact View is a companion application, developed by SoftWyer, that is based upon the default Android viewer to provide a more clear view of the contacts. To use Contact View with Contact Lookup you must install it from the Android Market.
A third party provides the default Android editor that works well with the SoftWyer suite of contact applications.
Further details on this application can be found on the developers website (click the link below if browsing through the market). If you experience any problems, then please email me in the first instance via ContactLookupPro at SoftWyer.com
