Contact management should be simple


I am hoping someone in Thurrottville may be able to help me. I am trying to figure the best way to manage my contacts.

The contacts app for Android is a complete mess and because I have 3 accounts – Google, outlook and work (G Suites) it is impossible to manage. 

I have tried a few contact management apps but find that most just organize contacts from my email accounts. I am looking for a solution that is completely separate from my email accounts that can be backed up.

What is the best method of handling contact info?

    I will be following this to see what folks say. For me the only real answer is to consolidate to a single contact list. I moved over contacts from all other accounts (including selected work contacts).


    I run on an iPhone but based on something Paul and Mary Jo had discussed I was slowly migrating off of the Apple apps. So far I've successfully elminiated Mail, Podcasts, Stocks, Photos and somewhat Safari (I use Chrome but couldn't kill the native browser). I wouldn't mind adding contacts to that list.
