  • Manage Subscription: Upgrade to Premium to reap the benefits of a Premium subscription.
  • Sync sources: ensure all address book sources you want syncing with Contacts+ have been added, you've selected your preferred sync settings, and you've either enabled or disabled your Device contacts.
    • You can add additional address books via the [plus] icon in the bottom right-hand corner.
  • Contact items: adjust default labels and reorder the fields for your contacts via the lined dots on the right-hand side. Click on lined dots, then drag the field up or down to reorder.

Now that you've finished the first five steps as a new user, next we'll walk you through best practice guidelines for getting the most out of Contacts+ for Android.

1. View Contact / Quick Actions

  • Click on the vertical [...] icon next to a contact to access quick actions: call, text, email, etc. Keep in mind that clicking the three dots will call the number listed at the top of the contact.
  • Otherwise, click on a contact to view all details, add the contact as a favorite (via the … button), edit the contact (via the pencil icon), etc.

2. Assistant

  • Apply updates where you see fit. If you ignore an update, it will not be offered to you again.

3. Search bar

  • Use the magnifying glass icon at the top of your contact list to search for contacts, email addresses, tags, and more.

4. Add a contact, capture a business card, and add a new sync source

  • Via the blue [+] icon in the upper right-hand corner, get immediate actions.

5. Tags

  • Add, edit, or remove tags -> click on a tag icon to view all contacts in it.
