free app to search contacts by multiple fields, then dial/send the desired found contact?

I've got a few thousand contacts. Some I know the company name (organization) or street or city, etc.. I found one app called Contact Finder that searches effectively, but doesn't allow you to do anything once you've found what you're looking for.

I don't know of a single app that does both, but if you use the contact finder to find the name you can then use Google Voice to contact them via call/text/email.

Only have to do this once....

1. Open Google search

2. Click left menu button

3. Select Search Settings

4. Uncheck all except Contacts and Voice Search (This give faster search results)

Search this way will work now...

Pressing and holding menu button on the home page and start typing the name of company or person name.

You can also use the right search button to find information...

I also just noticed that a app that I have been using also has this option under the settings menu and I never enabled it, aTakePhone can search any area of your contacts and display results in the dialer...  Check it out on the market..
