This is an extension to the Android search facility that lets you search for any contact details.

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

Contact Lookup Pro will search for any part of your contacts that you choose.

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

Pro version adds:

- Improved phone number search.
- Search your contact notes
- Search contact events (OS 2.0+)
- Search SIP addresses (OS 2.3)
- Search Gmail custom fields (OS 2.0+)
- Search group names
- Palm like Initial + Surname search, e.g. use "ol" or "ola" to find Osma Bin Laden
- Sort by Surname
- Quickly show contacts in a group (OS 2.0+)
- Send and email or SMS to contacts in your search list (OS 2.0+)
- Show organisation in the results, rather than search snippet
- Contact photos show in the app screen
- Regular Expression search mode
- Quick launch by long-press on search button
- Automatic search on key press
- Support for larger screens without 'letter boxing'
- Search text is highlighted in Contact View.

Categories searched:

- Structured Names
- Nicknames (OS 2.0+)
- Phone Numbers
- SIP (Session Initiation Protocol) Addresses, also know as VOIP addresses. (OS 2.3+)
- Email Addresses
- Website Addresses
- Postal Addresses
- Instant Messaging Addresses
- Organisations (OS 2.0+)
- Contact Events (Birthdays, Anniversaries, etc)
- Contact Notes
- Relations
- Contact group names
- Custom fields entered via Gmail (labels and data, OS2.0+)
- Custom labels in the standard contact fields are searched too!

IMPORTANT NOTE: You need to explicitly enable the search for SIP as these are not searched by default. Similarly, to see contact PHOTOS these must be enabled. This can be done through the Contact Lookup Pro preferences screen.

If you find Contact Lookup Pro too slow for your daily needs, then try Contact Lookup Fast. It searches the same categories as Pro but in a fraction of the time. See the website for details.

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 provides the default Android editor that works well with the SoftWyer suite of contact applications.

Further details on this application can be found on the developers website (click the link below if browsing through the market). If you experience any problems, then please email me in the first instance via ContactLookupPro at

Easily best search app. Better than Power Search and the others. New Palm Initial search is a nice addition- good to see that again.

You gotta have it!! Love it! I didn't like my Droid because it didn't have a search engine like my old Trio. It works great even finds notes!

Pro version is great! Now I can search phone numbers regardless of the number format. Searching notes works when enabled in Settings. Thanks!
