Installing Star Contacts is easy. First, click on the over-the-air download link provided in the automated confirmation e-mail sent to you from our store. Click ‘download’, and within a minute or two Star Contacts should be downloaded and installed on your device. Once you’ve done this, you can access the application from the main menu (if you’re running OS 4.6 or 4.7, you can find Star Contacts in you Downloads folder). You’re now ready to start using Star Contacts.
Star Contacts is an Address Book management utility. What does that mean? It means the purpose of this app is to visually manage your contacts by giving you control of the way groups are separated and distinguished. To make this more effective – and to justify purchasing a replacement for an already information-rich Address Book application (at your discretion, of course), the guys over at Sparkle Solutions Inc. decided to include the option of adding more information about your contacts onto your device.
This is what the application looks like. You can only seem to sort names alphabetically according to a contact’s first name, and not his or her last name. While I personally prefer to sort my contacts by their first names, I recognize that the greater good – satisfying both preferences – is more important.
Star Contacts stores plenty of information about your contacts, and automatically parses that information into three large types: business information, home information, and personal information. ‘Home information’ contains much of same information one would find in their BlackBerry Address Book, oriented around location – addresses, phone numbers, web pages, etc.. ‘Personal information’ includes personal information like birthdays, spouse information and the like. ‘Business information’ allows you to add business addresses, the names of your contacts’ assistants, fax numbers and email addresses, and the like.
