Re: [Inf-IT DAVcl] Android CardDAV client


Do you use CardDavMATE on the server or do you use any other client?
Notes should sync well. By "custom fields" do you mean labels of phone numbers and email addresses? Or do you mean real custom fields with custom content?

To overcome the address field issue you might want to try an alternative editor app like "Contact editor free" or "Contact Editor Pro". They use a structured editor instead, which means you enter all values into separate fields.

Sorry for that. I must have been misled by the name 'davclients'...

Anyway, which Android version do you use?
Samsung Note 10.1 (N8010), Android 4.1.2.

What exactly is the problem with the stock contacts app?
Most notably, it doesn't seem to handle notes and user defined fields. I
can add a Note field, but this does not reflect what's in the notes
field on the server.

Also, it lacks configuration capabilities to control display of
addresses. E.g., it insists in putting the zip code after the city name,
while in our country the zip should come before the city name.

... so any contacts app that supports the contacts database on Android
should work.
That's what I expected. But as I said, I'm missing the Notes and user
defined fields.

But probably I'm doing something wrong?

BTW: Many thanks for CalDAVsync and CardDAVsync!
