    Hi All,
    I am looking for a standalone contacts app for my iPhone. I have 600 personal contacts and 1800 for work. If I merge the contacts, my address book is going to be a mess. So, I wish to have a separate contacts app for my work contacts so that both the address books remain completely independent of each other. I've tried Cobook, but couldn't sync contacts from Mac to iOS app. Could somebody please suggest a good app? Thanks a lot. Cheers!

    Have you considered making two groups in your contacts, one for business and one for personal? It's a very effective way to keep contacts separated. I do this, with multiple groups for different businesses.

    Thanks, but I'm looking for a completely independent app, which has dial capabilities as well.

    I added all the contacts to Cobook on my mac, but can't get to transfer them to Cobook on iPhone. Any solutions?

    My contacts on cobook and my iphone cont;;acts are the same. In both places cobook picked up these contacts so they are the same.

    Could you please guide me through the process? I created a separate user on my mac with all the work contacts added to the address book. On the iPhone, I've blocked Cobook's access to contacts, will it work with this scenario? Thanks.

    The way I did it is that I already had my contacts on my iphone and mac synced and then when I installed cobook on my mac and iphone I gave them both access to thee contacts.
