    hopefully i'm describing this correctly...

    i'm looking for a stand alone contact manager app that will allow me to import contacts and map custom fields from our CRM database. depending on the user, their database can be anywhere from a few hundred to a few thousand contacts.

    in an effort to keep things clean (business vs. personal), i'd like to keep these out of the built in contact manager.

    i'd appreciate any feedback or ideas on other methods.

    There’s great news! DejaOffice is exactly what you’re looking for.

    DejaOffice is a stand-alone suite of contacts, calendar, tasks and notes apps for Android designed for CRM users with features like linking contacts to calendar items, custom fields, and categories. It is available at no charge from the Android Market or at www.dejaoffice.com

    DejaOffice also has the option to choose whether or not you sync with the native contacts and calendar, so you can keep all your data local to DejaOffice, or share it with the native Android contact manager and calendar.

    Combined with CompanionLink software on the PC, it can be synced with many CRM databases including Outlook, ACT!, Goldmine and others, along with the ability to map custom fields. For more information about what CRM software is supported, and to download the free 14 day trial of CompanionLink, just look here:

    There doesn't seem to be a link associated with your response "There". I know this post is pretty old but it seems to be what I'm looking for. I hope you're still around and can help.

    I restored the post as it was lost somehow during the XF transfer. The link didn't render right, it's almost white on white below the text.:(

    Unfortunately, that user posted only once over 4 years ago. You have to remember that in 2010 Android was still very young. The version that was shipping was 2.1 (Eclair). Now 2.3 (Gingerbread) is considered a legacy OS.

    As to the contacts app, I just looked in the play store and there are a lot of them. I really couldn't recommend one over another because I don't personally use any of them.

    Obviously I started in the play store. Several applications were simply replacements for the built in contact manager and read in the Google contacts. Another, listed as a "contact manager" actually was a backup tool for contacts. Luckily the DejaOffice application that I found after my inquiry seems to do the trick as is current as of September of this year.

    Glad you were able to find something that worked for you.
