If you have a lot of friends and acquaintances that you regularly contact via different methods - telephone, Skype and email - you might be interested in a desktop address book application. There are plenty around, but many are throwbacks to the early days of computing and don't really seem to have changed since they were first launched.

Luckily for us, Custom Addressbook is a light, fresh address book app that will keep your contacts in good order. The concept is simple - each entry has various fields for name, number, address, etc. - and the tool facilitates search and grouping so that your addresses will always be close to hand. The Custom Addressbook interface is also very versatile - you can customize the information fields, apply different skins and create or delete categories so that the program will always reflect your life.

Password protection is always a welcome addition, and the Asian language support will mean Custom Addressbook appeals to a broader audience.
