Originally, I conceived this solution in order to solve many problems that I had with my contacts datas, spread between multiple email contacts databases on different mail websites (some without syncing options…), around 100 phone contacts entries on my previous phone and even an old paper booklet with phones numbers ! I wanted to centralize all the data on my smartphone, keep it private (no phone number list of my friends on the web, please !), edit it, add data quickly and easily (I’m not good at taping fast on a touchscreen device…) and, top of it, get rid of the multiple syncing problems I had encountered with my smartphone (cut numbers, lost contacts, etc…). So, I came to the idea of a combination of 2 apps to do the job. Maybe this app will help you too ! (if you want to know, yes, I got rid of the old booklet and the old phone device)

And how ?

XlcontactImport use a formatted Excel file containing your contacts datas as an input, where :

The import excel file must uses the classic Excel format (.xls / Excel 97 – 2003) which can be edited using old and current Microsoft Office suite on computers, and alternatives like OpenOffice, or Thinkfree, Document to go, AlwaysOnPC and several others on the Android platform. The current Excel format (.xlsx) is supported in the pro version of this app (see below).

XlcontactImport can look for an input file on your phone SD card, download it automatically from a website or a FTP site. Download from a Dropbox Account is also available with the pro version of the app.

XlContactImport has been tested on Android 1.6, 2.x, 3.x and 4.x devices (with extensive testing on a Samsung Galaxy S under Android 2.3.4). Tests on Android 5.x are currently in progress, but as the early results show, the app should work fine too.
