Get the power of an often asked for, but mysteriously forgotten feature of Windows Phone Search!

Adding your local search and Local Scout results directly to your Contacts is just a tap away!

Although local search and Local Scout results on your Windows Phone are fun, helpful, and powerful, if you want to add a search result to your Contacts, you have to Copy & Paste all information individually into a new Contact.

With Add to Contacts, the entire process is automated for you, including retrieving an image for your Contact if it’s available!

PRIMARY USE: Go to Bing Search, get local or Local Scout results, go to the apps tab, then tap 'Add to Contacts'!

SECONDARY USE: Search for local results from within the app itself and add them directly to your contacts!

The app provides integrated Local and Nearby search, with the ability so save your most recent search, but the real power comes from tapping Add to Contacts right from your search result profile!

Download one of the forgotten features of Windows Phone today!

THIS UPDATE: Added a fix for Bing Local results not returning correct location for businesses that have numerous location nearby.

    I'm changing my review. The developer responded to me with the reasons behind a new paid app, and quite quickly I should add. Once WP8.1 goes public the app will be free for a limited time to allow users that already own the app to purchase it for free. The developer is also very open to user feedback.

    Updated version works, but is fundamentally flawed. Search results are easily added to contacts, but not added to the contacts of your existing mail accounts--only to the "add to contacts" contacts. That's no big on the phone, but that means that I can't get to those contacts from my other devices/computers. That is a really big deal. Saving contacts to my phone only is severely crippling the value of this app. There should be a method for saving to a specified contacts account instead of just saving to this special collection.

    Local Scout integration doesn't work despite following (confusing) instructions. Turned Suggestions Off then On then launched "App" (Local Scout or Add to Contacts?) multiple times. Also tried Turning Off, running "App" (again which one) multiple times then turning back on. Nothing worked. Other apps show up automatically so obviously they are doing something wrong that it doesn't work, and blaming Microsoft. Silly developers.

    App now not received an update since 2013 😞 Opening app direct and performing in-app search and then add to contacts still works in WP8 (& WP8.1) BUT app doesn't appear in Bing Search Results Apps list to work in original main 'Integration' mode, even after following workaround instructions. Will update this score back to 5 instead of 3 star if/when updated and fixed for WindowsPhone 8-8.1

    It works just as advertised, but did anyone notice just how much control the app requires of your phone? Its unreal.

    Doesn't appear in apps list from search results, so it's not working as designed.

    I have re-rated this app. It does work, however, not directly through Local Scout If you know the name of what you are looking for, you can go into this app, search for it, and add it that way. So, it still works, but not integrated. Would be nice if they could take another look at this and fix it. but then again, maybe something will be included in the WP8.1 Update that will make this app moot.

    Please update. Many known local and established vendors and businesses are not found.
  • by Bob 2/26/2014
    Love the concept, but wish it worked. Toggled suggestions numerous times and it still doesn't show up in the app list, though several apps I don't own do show up with a price. Please fix this!

    This app still does not work correctly. I wish they would get it to integrate with scout, etc.
