    So I'm searching for some businesses... and on my old Touch Pro... using BING I could just hit "add to contacts" and the results would put the phone number / address in my contacts list.

    Using the google search bar doesn't seem to be that powerful, unless I'm missing a feature.

    Is there a way to do this with stock droid / or is there a search program like bing for the droid? (I hated bing's maps, but the searching was useful!)

    I just searched for my local grocery store, when I long pressed the phone number on their website I was able to select 'add contact'. It may vary from site to site but if the phone number is 'active' you should be able to add it?

    Bah my droid didn't post the reply yesterday! LOL

    Anyway... Yes, it does have "Add to Contacts" or whatever.. but it JUST ADDS the phone number... no name/ no address/ etc.

    Is there an app that does something like this? Search for stuff around my location / a set location and add it to my contacts? Kinda like BING for windows mobile?

    Places, among other apps, should help.
