    Hey guys

    Looking for some recommendations on some apps please.

    1. I'm looking for a contacts app that manages my address book a bit better. I've gotten a bit sick of the default ones on my nexus one and dell streak.

    2. RSS reader. Newsrob seems to be misbehaving for me at the moment. All evening I read my feeds and mark stuff read. but when I come back to look at my google reader on a pc the next day everythings marked unread. Is there a better one out there?

    thanks in advance for the suggestions.

    Not sure about the Contacts one, but AnyRSS Reader is what I use and LOVE it:

    Any RSS reader + widget - Cyrket

    There was an application called Phonebook that I read about a while back but it has been pulled from the market by the developer as they are releasing Phonebook 2.0 I believe...
    Don't know anything about it really yet. Will post more when I know more.

    For now though, you could try Address Book or Contacts Blast.
    Address Book/Review: http://androinica.com/2009/10/27/ad...-in-android-contact-communication-management/
    Contacts Blast: http://androidforums.com/android-ap...new-full-featured-contact-manager-dialer.html
    Just some information on them.

    EDIT: I found someone that has an APK file for Phonebook, not 2.0 but still.

    Hope this all helps.
