Proton Contacts mobile app
Yesterday I used Google Contacts (and/or the default Huawei contacts) app on my Android phone.
Tomorrow, I will use the secure and lovely Proton Contacts app for Android (and possibly iOS - there are probably iOS users who would want this, too).
From this Proton Contacts app, I will also be able to do my regular calls, browse call logs, see favourite contacts and groups for contacts, and utilize a search function for it all.
Please strongly consider making this tomorrow today, Proton Team <3
I'd love to get away from Google's contacts app (which is not bad, it's just... Google)
and I would love nothing more than to be able to rely on my primary email provider to house my contacts remotely and securely

To further migrate away from Google, contacts needs to be fully featured in ProtonMail and replace the contacts app in Android, including integration with the phone app
I'd like to migrate from apple but am tied to it as proton mail contacts doesn't allow my phone to see the contacts and the format feels very 1987 in terms of fields and ease of use.. and the inability to code a type of contact unless there's an email is outdated given how many folks most text
The contacts aren't integrated at all in the phone. I also abandonned this feature of ProtonMail because it's a lack of usability.
You may also consider add a dialer application in order to replace the default one in Android, so at least it's possible to have some kind of smooth integration.
Would be nice if such calendar would sync android phone contact and email contact.
Seeems to be difficult cause GAFFA wouldn't like to loose our contacts ..
If possible, integration with thunderbird sync contact please.
Thank yu PROTON TEAM !
I don't necessarily need an app for this, but I would like to sync my protonmail contacts with my phone's addressbook and therefore keep both up-to-date. Perhaps one could compromise by adding a function that disables syncing for specifically marked contacts (and therefore keep them only in the proton contact list to warrant no leakage and guarantee privacy for that contact).

An app would be okay. I'd far rather have a reliable and regularly tested CardDAV server (which works with default Apple Contacts and default Android contact app).
Something must be done, as there's no way to securely and privately sync contacts with almost anything now. Contact sync is a huge hole in the Proton services.
For all of you waiting to get out of google:
You don't have to wait for protonmail to do all the lifting.
Just search for "degooglify" and you will land on pages such as
degooglisons-internet.org or framasoft.org which have everything you need
(and which you should support)

Also you need a standalone tab with a full contact browser/manager, right now being able to access contacts only from a popup within mail is very confining and makes it hard to manage contact records efficiently, especially since it closes the popup after every contact action!
Hello Proton Team,
getting away not only from Google, other Freemails but also - at least since they started (trying) to put backdoors into iOS and icloud (Calendar, Contacts, Email, Data) is not even encrypted: getting away from Apple is also paramount:
Therefore, Proton PIM (Personal Information Management) is really, really important:
integrated contacts, calendars and email functionalities - proton style and proton security with evolving functionalities.
One more kind request: all information must be capable of being downloaded acc. to standards like ical etc.
Do this, keep and improve your standards and you have me for life. I´d also pay for this unless you wouldn´t become greedy.
thank you !!

!!!!! PLEASE !!!!!
Make a "Contacts" app similar to Google's so I can get rid of Google. Until then, I cannot!!!
We need our contacts integrated with email(already is) and phone(for dialing and call history) and calendar(like b-days & anniversaries).
I like these ideas. I would add: ability to select contact(s) from a drop down in Calendar to link an event to that contact and have a searchable log of such events; and or create an event in Calendar linked to a contact, directly from the Contact's file. More here: https://protonmail.uservoice.com/forums/284483-protonmail/suggestions/43701423-calendar-allow-me-to-set-different-primary-time-z
I would also like to add a few things, the current contacts app isn't really that useful. Here are somethings I'd love to see:
When you leave notes in the contact, you can't do bullet points. I like to use this as a CRM and leave notes like "just moved to NY", "Met on 5/2021 on Clubhouse", ect. I like to use this app because most CRMs are kind of awful from a privacy standpoint. If you try to do dashes and press enter between bullet points, it ends up in one big paragraph and it's a mess.
The contacts currently only allow for phone number and email. Yes, us privacy conscious ProtonMail customers don't like social media and all of that garbage... but the thing is we often meet people who have them, and respond faster through that, so it's helpful to have input fields for that.
Have a standalone Proton Contacts app that can grant access to other apps (phone and messages).
Hi Proton, thank you for a great product so far!
I would like to see a Proton Contacts app to replace Android apps Dialer and Contacts.
With features like:
- encrypted storage on the device itself (business usage)
- call history
- - optional integration to relevant email threads and vice versa
- pin number option (like in ProtonMail app), with allowance for selected parts of the app without pin:
- - allow dialer
- - allow call history
- - allow selected contacts (or groups) visible
