    Anyone know of a really good phone book type app for the Hero? I hate the organization of the Hero's contacts, etc. The moment for peats sake has at least the tabular tabs at the top for organization. I like that..

    I saw Phonebook in the market, but the reviews dont speak volumes.

    Anything else?

    You got it, Asurion's AddressBook. (Yeppie, *that* Asurion, the mobile insurance folks.)
    AddressBook vBeta Application for Android | Communication

    Can't speak on that version, but the version released today for 2.0/Droid looks great and is fairly smooth, especially for a beta. Only problem I've encountered so far-- it choked when initially pulling the list of Twitter friends. Stopped when it got to #100, each and every time. But no fc, so I could gracefully exit that particular screen.

    Facebook integration is killa. You can "Match Friends", and tell it to keep or change pics, during initial pull of FB info, or anytime after via the menu. So if there's a mismatch, it can be easily cured. Later, pulling up a contact includes a button so you can check out that person's latest posts -- withOUT ever leaving the app!

    Install walks you through the "mix-in"s you'll need to also download (twitter, facebook, others), depending on what you want. The whole dang thing is just sweet, from easing editing chores to reviewing your list of contacts.

    Lekky, sorry 'bout dat! I checked AndroLib prior to posting, but now it seems that can't be trusted as a mirror of the store.

    This morning, I checked Asurion Mobile AddressBook , and from there, Asurion Mobile AddressBook - Bring Your AddressBook To Life! , where I saw: "For phones using Android 1.6 & 2.0"

    Good news though-- in my Google Reader this morning, I read that Sprint will be skipping the 2.0 firmware upgrade for Hero folks, and going instead directly to 2.1. No precise timeframe given however.

    (I'm confused-- I thought all Androids had upgraded their firmware to, at least, 1.6.)

    I use a contact manager called 2GETHER (mobileappz together - Funktionen). I like it and it works quite well for me. I use a Galaxy-phone.
    I like the design and the integrated FluRadar. Very nice :)

    I tried all the apps I could and they were all horrible for some reason. I use aContacts but its starting to acct a little weird so I want to find a replacement before I lose any data.
    Guess I'll have to go back to the market :-(.
     
  12. I cant seem to find Phonebook on the market. Any idea what I need to type in the search?
