Fuchs' Address Book for Windows can be summed up in one word, "simple." The product is a 600K download, and the entire program is located on a zip file, so you only have to unzip it to a directory of your choice and you're ready to run. The software isn't anything to look at, and occasionally crashes, but this is on a Windows 2k system (what DOESN'T crash?)

Address book allows you to create a contacts database (address book J ) with fields such as; name, title, company, address, phone and fax numbers, e-mail addresses, and notes. All of these fields appear in your entries, and they are not customizable. The software does allow you to run searches of your records, as well as import/export/backup them. Another positive feature of this software title is that it allows you to directly dial up the phone number of any of your contacts. This is advantageous but I have doubts towards whether or not anyone even uses their computer to make phone calls. It's just plain simple to just pick up a phone.

There are a million and one address book titles out there. Shop around, and choose for yourself. This title is a small, cheap way to keep all of your contacts in order.
