    Is there a Contacts or People app for use with Email apps like K9-Mail? The K9-Mail has an simple and easy interface but when I attempt to forward an email message by selecting the people button, K9-Mail reports no contacts/people application is available.

    I tried downloading several contacts apps listed on google play but they also reported contacts/people application problems.

    Thanks for your help.

    Assuming you mean for Gtv, Go Contacts EX. you need to export from phone, then import into gtv

    it won't be. you need to sideload it.
    install it on your phone, then copy the apk to your gtv and install.

    Jarhead, thanks for the suggestion to sideload the app. I don't have access to my gtv until next week. I will report back after I try it.

    Jarhead:

    1) I downloaded "Go Contacts EX" app from appsapk.com to my PC
    2) Put the apk file on a memory stick
    3) Plugged memory stick into Sony NSZ-GS8
    4) Installed "Go Contacts Ex" app using the "Download" app
    5) Entered two different contacts manually into "Go Contacts Ex"
    6) Had "Go Contacts EX" check that the application was current

    Unfortunately when I run the "K9-Mail" app it still reports "No application can handle this action" when selecting people button when forwarding e-mail message.

    I tried turning the Sony NSG-GS8 on and off but "K9-Mail" still reported the "No application can handle this action"

    Thanks for your help.

    Don't try the "contacts" button. Just start typing a name and it will auto-complete from the contacts you have stored.

    Also, it's a lot easier to install the app on your phone, export all your contacts, then import them into the Gtv.

    Jarhead, thanks for taking all the time to help me with the installation and "contacts" button issues.

    I like your suggestion of downloading to the phone, but I don't have an android phone (only a nexus 7 tablet). My wife and I spend a lot of time on our sail boat outside of cell phone converage and don't have a data plan.

    Thanks again.

    P.S. I bought the Sony NSZ-GS8 to replace my fathers WebTV unit.
