Zyb.com import for android (updated)

Zyb.com is a great service, and I have been using it for a long time (nothing worse than loosing all your contacts or having to copy them to the SIM card when moving between phones) but unfortunately the doesn’t have an Android client, and I have been unable to make any other clients work.

There for I have been working on a zyb importer, which can import JSON files with your contacts, which zyb makes available from zyb.com/feeds, the project can be seen at code.google.com/p/zyb-import, I will try to make the application available via android market as soon possible, until then you can download the source and build it yourself.

See screenshots here.

Update: the app is released to android Market, search for “zyb”.

Update 2: the app only works with android 1.5 and 1.6, I was planning a new version supporting 2.0+, however, zyb has in the meantime announced that they will close down on the 31st of July, I will not make an updated version, I thus urge anybody with android 2.0 or greater to use the method described here: http://www.consumingexperience.com/2009/05/zyb-export-copy-mobile-phone-contacts.html for importing their contacts, before it’s too late! Thanks.

  1. Aha… so now I have imported all my zyb contacts to my phone contacts – and have them double. 🙁
    I was assuming that – as zyb is intended to sync – that this would also sync. But I now have my contacts doubled. The idea of zyb is to keep the most recent, not double every time!

  2. Martin: I’m sorry to hear that, however, if you read the description in the market, you would know that it does not sync, it is simply a tool for you to import the contacts once, because zyb does not have a sync tool themselves for android, and in no way affiliated with zyb.

  3. Hej Søren.
    Jeg har hentet programmet Zyb i marked til min Android mobil. Men den vil ikke kenkende mit navn eller kodeord ???? Og jeg logger på med de samme oplysninger som på zyb.dk. ? Kan du hjælpe med evt en opdatering eller ?

  4. Jeg kunne forestille mig at du ikke fik tastet dine login oplysninger 100% korrekt på mobilen, tjek blandt andet er den ikke laver auto-correction. Virker dit login på zyb.com?

  5. Hej

    Laver du ikke en opdatering til Android 2.1? Det ville være helt kanon. Jeg savner zyp på min Desire.
