"Not happy with the default Android phonebook? Change it!"

Reviewed by / May 31, 2011

Go Contacts is a replacement of your default phonebook and dialer featured by fast search, easy grouping and backup/recovery

That the default Android phonebook and dialer could be improved it's not a mistery. It's a bit annoying searching contacts, merge duplicates and it hasn't easy backup/recovery settings. Go Contact comes up to solve such a catches. First, search contacts is quicker: you will find them by any letter, name or keyword fast thanks to its search engine. The group contacts set by default in Go Contacts (family, friends work) makes easier sort and fin them. It has a great engine to identify by name or phone number those merge duplicated contacts.

Go Contacts also includes a dialer. Regarding it, the app will match numbers and names while you are dialing. IP Dial is supported, what's going to be an important feature shortly. Unlike the default Android phonebook, Go Contacts allows you to change the theme. By default you will get the Go Contacts blue theme or a black one, but you can download extra free themes. One of the strong points of Go Contacts is the Backup/Restore feature. It allows you to save contacts to or restore them from SD card.

Let's zoom on the flaws. One thing that we missed and that we can perform on the default Android phonebook is the call by dragging to the right or send an sms by dragging to the left (it seems something useless but some users really appreciate it!). Another catch is that it has some problems to handle accented names. That must be solved as soon as possible to make it usable. Transition speed between menus could be improved as well.

Go Contacts has been developed by Go Launcher Dev Team, the author of the well-known Go Launcher EX and some themes and widgets related to it. They’re being quite successful: Go Launcher EX is one of the Top3 Android launchers by downloads.

If you pleased enough with the default Android phonebook & dialer performance don't take this in account. But if you want to improve its interface and usability, Go Contacts it's a good choice. In spite of the small bugs, this is a great phonebook & dialer app.
