Adr_Book is a way for users to keep a little black book of names, numbers, and addresses on their computers. For users managing contacts in e-mail or other programs, this program offers no extra benefits.

This program's interface is the simplest display an address book could have. With a design that could be 15 years old, it will not win any beauty pageants. However, it does have a simple premise that should be easy for any new user to master in minutes. By simply clicking on new entry, users are prompted to enter details such as name, address, e-mail, phone number, and even notes about the new entry. The book automatically alphabetizes each entry, which is nice but fairly standard in programs of this type.

The extras that Adr_Book throws in could be useful but seem to be missing some of the niceties found in other similar programs. Users can create printing labels, envelopes and reports with the push of a button. While this feature is nice, it does not have a print preview option, so one must be confident their item will print properly. The option to dial a phone number is confusing and unnecessary to most casual computer users.

There are a great number of programs from e-mail to personal planners that let users these same freedoms, with added options and more intuitive setup than Adr_Book. We recommend downloading and using something else before trying this primitive address book program.
