This is an extension to the Android search facility that lets you search your contacts.

Whilst Android includes a native contact search, it will only search for names, and not parts of numbers or addresses.

Contact Lookup will look in MOST of the contact category fields for your search terms.

Includes powerful search modes including a true AND search that works across categories.

THERE ARE TWO PAID VARIANTS, full details on these applications can be found on the developers website (click the link below if browsing through the market). The free version is considered to be 'feature complete' and will not be updated, whereas the Pro and Fast versions enjoy the regular addition of new features.


Go PRO and get the following additional features:

- Uses the whole screen on larger devices.
- Improved phone number search.
- Search group names.
- Search contact events (OS 2.0+)
- Search SIP addresses (OS 2.3)
- Search Gmail Custom Fields (OS 2.0+)
- Sort by Surname
- Show organisation in the results, rather than search snippet
- Contact photos in the app screen
- Regular Expression search mode
- Auto-complete on Search History
- Keyboard suggestions
- Choose whether to use Contact View as the default
- Quickly show all contacts in a group (OS2.0+)
- Email and SMS the contacts from your search (OS2.0+)
- Full word search by using the '-' prefix
- Choose between light and dark themes
- No adverts!
- No adverts in Contact View, either!


Too slow with PRO? Go Fast!

Contact Lookup Fast can search your contacts very quickly, even for large numbers of contacts (~19,000).

An overview of the new features in Pro and Fast can be found here ->

Contact View

Contact View is a companion application developed by SoftWyer that is based upon the default Android viewer to provide a more clear view of the contacts. To use Contact View with Contact Lookup you must install it from the Android Market.

Contact Editor

A third party application provides the default Android editor that works well with the SoftWyer suite of contact applications.


This application requires Internet permissions to enable adverts to be shown.
