    I'm looking for a separate Address Book App for iPhone or iPad. I like having all my personal contacts in my "Contacts" app but I hate having to fish through all those each time I'm at work and need to call, fax, or email my work contacts.

    You are aware that you can have various addressbooks linked to the Addressbook APP?

    Yeah I was just wondering if there was a different app so that I didnt have to go in a deselect the groups. Alright I figured it out I'll just use Cobook and only ever have it with work numbers when I open it

    Ooop.. i'll leave this here but, I missunderstood your reply. Sorry, maybe it helps another person

    I'll shorthand an explanation sort of assuming some of what you seek

    - Open a 2nd iCloud account
    - in iPhone preferences, link to it
    - but be careful to activate only the "Addressbook" option
    - stop the Addressbook APP
    - reopen the AddressBook and on the main screen you should have "Groups" button on the top
    - tap "Groups"
    - here you can activate, or deactivate what you see

    Note: do a few tests, and particularly be careful when you create a new entry that you pick the correct addressbook account

    hope this helps
