Default Contact Manager App needed

I recently bought a tablet with an Android OS. I can not find one decent Contact Manger for it. Just keeping e-mail address with names is not a Contract Manager and that is the definition of the default android Contact Manager.

I know that it won't track everything like my current Contact Manger but I can export to Outlook. Then if I found a good Contact Manager APK I could transfer from the desktop Outlook to the Android Contact Manger.

Without a good Contact Manager the tablet is not much more than small appliance that can access the internet and play games.

But what do YOU want the contact manager to do?

Hm? I want it to do what must all good CM's do but because it is a tablet appliance I know the app can not be as robust as desktop CM's. Phone number storing a CM is not, seeing what friends are doing this weekend a CM is not. I am not an attorney but needed a robust CM and bought one called Timematters Law Office Software and Legal Matter Management | The Benefits of Time Matters

Possibly the new versions of TM can synch with a tablet but I am using an older version. To update would be something like $700 and to update just to have it synch with a tablet isn't in the cards.

Although Outlook Express isn't a CM and not the one I use, synching with Outlook Express would be great. I can synch TM to Outlook.

What tablet do you have anyway? Samsung Tablets already have pretty good contact apps already, so I am wondering what you have. The Samsung Contacts app can sync to Outlook. It would really be helpful if you just say it outright what you want a "contact manager" to do rather than telling us what you do not want.

Thanks

It looks good except that it keeps telling me I need to DL iTunes to get the app. I keep iTunes far from any of my stuff and keep trying to find a way to DL outside of iTunes.

This is a list of some of the things my desktop Timematters will do -

Contact & Client Management

Centrally manage and control access to all of the information about your clients and other parties involved in cases and matters.
Matter & Project Management

Organize, associate and track all contacts, documents, events, phone calls and other information associated with a case or matter—from a single application.
Docketing, Calendaring & Scheduling

Automate workflows and apply best practices across the organization with the comprehensive alert and reminder system.
Document Management

Save time and reduce duplication of effort when producing client and court papers with document automation features.
Basic Time Capture & Billing

Document billable hours and client expenses using included timesheets, billing item forms or timers. Apply hourly or flat-fee rates per client or matter. Generate and print bills for mailing.

Memos, Notes, Tasks, Document tracking, Emailing

Back in the days of my Palm TX I used a very good one called Agendus. It did darn near what my desktop did but they don't have an Android app yet.

The tablet is an off brand called Pandigital Supernova. Not a bad capacitive screened tablet for $188 running on a Samsung chassis at about a speed of 1.06. Hacked it and it does the full android market apps and everything else.

So if I could find an app that would do half of what Agendus did with the Palm OS....I would be happy.

How about Outlook? I use Oulook 2010 and sync that (with my phone). I can sync contacts/calendar/notes/tasks. I got the "top" version of Office 2010 via an educational shop here in the UK as my son is in school (qualifies apparently and it's way cheaper). This also comes with Business Contact Manager and I read somewhere that you sync that with Outlook to sync with your phone (tablet in your case). Though I've never tried it as I've no need for that functionality.

Might be worth a look.

I found this one today. Seems rather robust and it has various ways to sync.

Sync contacts, calendar, tasks and memos with DejaOffice

It seems to be free --- so far. I think where they hope to make the money is on an app called Sync using CompanionLink (Recommended). I'm guessing they have an association because I think I found the link to dejaoffice at companion link.

You are correct - at CompanionLink we make both the PC sync software and DejaOffice, our mobile app. DejaOffice can be used independently of CompanionLink, though when combined it allows you to sync data from the computer to the mobile.

If you have any questions about how it all works, just let me know - I'm happy to help!
