AB Search

AB Search



The full text search for your iPhone or iPod Touch contacts.

Apple's spotlight search does not search all contact information.

AB Search searches in ALL fields of ALL contacts in your address book - in a split second, even if you have thousands of contacts in your address book!

• Are you looking for a really-simple-to-use contact search application?

• You have tagged your contacts and still cannot find anything using Apple's original search?

• Do you want to search thousands of addresses quickly?

• Would you like to see hits including hints where and what was hit while typing?

In each of these cases AB Search is the application for you!


• very easy to use

• search works while you are typing

• display of the complete contact information, like in the address book

• bookmarks

• landscape mode (iPhone OS 3.0 required)

• direct calls/emails/opening maps, like in the address book

• editing of addresses directly in the application

• boolean/logic operators (AND, OR, NOT)

What's New in Version 1.30

- landscape mode enabled on iPhoneOS 3
- more preference settings
- bug fixes

Dailer error Number+abuid698

I notice a number of users have problems with this app appending abuid698 to the phone number it is dialing. This was working fine until the latest update.
I would expect that a paid app would have better support from its developers.

Keeps crashing

Installed and launched AB Search. It indexed my 932 contacts. I performed a search on a city. It returned results. I saved the search as a bookmark, touched Done, and cleared the search field. The app crashed. I re-launched it and discovered the bookmark had not been saved. Performed the city search again, saved it as bookmark, touched Done, quit app. Re-launched. Bookmark was there this time. Selected the bookmark. App displayed results, then crashed. Re-launched, tried something else. Crashed again. Removed app from iPhone. I hope the developer stabilizes this app, because I'd like to use it. For now, though, it's too crash-prone. (Am running first-generation iPhone with 3.0 software.)

Poorly tested

Just purchased the app and found that it crashes incesantly. Seeking a refund.
