Android 1.6 and up
Search your Contacts - Fast!
The search tool for people who need speed or professionals with large contact databases (tested with over 25,000 contacts)
A very fast contact search tool that indexes the contact search database for superior performance.
====== New in 3.0 ===========
A new way to search within categories to narrow searches down to a specific category. For example, you can search for contacts called Ian who work for Google.
Just swipe right-to-left to access the new form based search screen.
Searches ALL the major contact fields like Contact Lookup Pro, but is an order of magnitude faster.
For example. Searching all categories of 1300 contact records in Contact Lookup Pro takes 1.2 seconds using a HTC Desire.
With Contact Lookup Fast, this is 0.1 seconds!
Fast version contains the same basic functionality as the free Contact Lookup application but adds:
- Select the groups to include in the index. Now you can exclude all the Google Plus people you are following ;-)
- Improved phone number search by default
- Specific category searching
- 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 all the contacts in a group
- Email/SMS contacts in search results
- Show organisation in the results, rather than search snippet
- Contact photos show in the app screen
- Use SQL wildcards for pattern matching
- Quick launch by long-press on search key
- Automatic search on key press
- Support for larger screens without 'letter boxing'
- Search text is highlighted in Contact View.
- Choose which accounts are to be included in the index, e.g Gmail
- 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
- Contact group names
- Custom fields entered via Gmail (labels and data, OS2.0 )
- Custom labels in the standard contact fields are searched too!
See the developers web site for more details and the differences between Contact Lookup Fast and Contact Lookup Pro.
Caching the contact database requires space on the Android device. It will be dependent upon the number and complexity of the contacts, for example
500 contacts requires 0.4MB (5 seconds to build).
1300 contacts requires 1.75MB (20 seconds to build).
Make sure you have enough space on your device or SD card. There appears to be NO noticeable performance loss in having the database on the SD card.
This application uses Google's licensing service which will check every 7 days to validate the license. You will need an internet connection to enable this check. If the check fails, the application will run in reduced functionality mode.
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.
A third party provides the default Android editor that works well with the SoftWyer suite of contact applications.
Note, Email us first if there's a problem with the application. We're happy to refund your purchase if you are not happy with the application.

I have 8k contacts and didn't think it would work. Lookup was incredibly slow with ics and now its lightening fast!A Google User - September 19, 2012
Very fast, very good!
Very good, very fast. No more fumbling through lists and flipping pages. I recommend it very highly. No more frustration with the native Android "People"!A Google User - September 10, 2012
Never lets me down
Was using Pro version for a few months and upgraded to Fast. It is much speedier for my 2500 contacts. Makes my business life a lot easier. Thanks for providing such excellent products! Would recommend to anyone.A Google User - August 16, 2012
Thanks for the shout out Karl
I went ahead and downloaded this app for a simple reason... Google doesn't have their act together on some things. I operate with an iPad 3 at work and I personally have the first EeePad Transformer. On the iPad, if you want to send an email to a group you created in the contacts, you just need to tell it to. There was no such way in ICS. Same with the fact that you can create pinpoints on maps with an iPad but not on ICS. So I went ahead and downloaded this app to send emails to my groups since I coach athletic teams and I go to college. It worked great, but on top of that, I noticed something the app writers put on their page, "don't uninstall this app if you're disappointed. shoot us an email..." So I did that in order to question the ability to send to multiple addresses for a single contact. Karl responded very promptly and proposed a number of viable options; some were extremely refined but tedious in programming, and some basic which depended heavily on us users. I was very impressed with how well he handled everything. I think the Wyers have a good thing going. I will support their software based on dynamic yet simple programming, and for their superb customer service.A Google User - September 12, 2012

This really works great
I never comment on apps. I been around since the first personal computers. What impressed me I was having issues with galaxy nexus. Sent email to developer he fixed the bug and sent me update. He made the extra effort. Thank you.A Google User - May 5, 2012
I have been using this app for three months now. It has palm style first initial + last name search. I just cannot do without that. The search is fast. And it searches thru all the fields. The dev Karl is very responsive. He fixed couple of defects I found pretty quickly. I have a couple of items on my wishlist that I have asked him to add. Overall a, must buy for all.A Google User - April 21, 2012

Contact lookup fast
This is great. I have hundreds of contacts. I can find anything with just a couple of letters. It searches all fields for key words. Well worth the $3 . I had used the app Contact Search before and it was slow and couldn't find contact by company name or organization. Contact look Up app was exactly what i need. I emailed support for help on something and they replied immediately . Great customer service. Excellent! Using LG Spectrum.
