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
Would love this, but rolled into the Proton Mail app. Somewhat like Microsoft's Outlook app.

This would be very helpful, I currently still use my Google account for contacts because I can not sync Proton contacts to my phone.

This feature is very much needed for those trying to replace services from big tech on their mobile devices.
In my opinion it will increase user adoption and retention, especially if properly advertised to current user base and appropriate security and privacy oriented channels.
Yeah it's neccesary and more private than Google, good suggestion!!
Contacts having phone number support without contacts having an app for phone kinda threw me off. +1.
Would help make migrating from another provider easier. Without this another provider's contacts app has to be used(like google/apple) for phone/daily life and keeping proton's contacts up to date thus becomes a dubious chore.

There are many methods that you can use. First of all engage with your audience. Provide them services that they want from you. If you will be able to provide this thing then you don't need to improve anything.

This feature would make it a lot easier to recommend ProtonMail as a service to friends and family. It would also make my own life much simpler and more secure.
The app would be nice, but the most important thing is sync with the contacts apps on iOS/Android.
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 !!
