DejaContacts

DejaContacts is an address book focused on productivity and maximizing screen space for information display. The image on the right shows you how your Contact List appears in DejaOffice.

Each contact displays phone number, company name, contact photo, and color-coded category. The information displayed is more comprehensive than the built-in Contacts app on Android devices.

Swipe up and down the contact list to scroll, or swipe along the right edge of the screen for accelerated scrolling.

Add a New Contact

Tap the plus symbol up in the top-right corner to add a new contact.

The add contact screen lets you input name, multiple phone numbers, email addresses and addresses, company name, and much more. You can also assign the Contact to one or more Categories from this screen.

To save your new contact, tap the check mark symbol in the top-right corner.
