Query....help please.

I have set up a GMail account for the first time ever on a tablet on behalf of my sister-in-law. Having never ever used Gmail or a tablet before, I can't find an address book/contact list to enter all her email addresses. Is there such a folder in Gmail?.

It's actually a right shocker that Gmail doesn't have its own contacts available in the android app but what can I say?

Beyond stupid IMO

But there's a great app called Contacts+ in the Play Store and it's free.

Your sister will be able to sign-in with her Google a/c and all will be well again

PS - Can't remember if you can edit from that app or not (sorry about that ) but if you can't just tell her to install an app called 'Create Contact' which is also free.

I have a very sad and extensive knowledge of android apps

Yeah, unless Tesco have inexplicably removed it, the contacts list is just the People app - no need for an additional app for this.

Apologies OP, for telling you a load of old cobblers

Contacts+ is a great app though - links into FB

Other apps (Whatsapp, Skype, Google+) manage to sync with People just fine. If Facebook pulled their finger out, or stopped throwing their toys out of the pram, and updated their app properly then we'd be able to sync Facebook too without the need for a third-party app. Methinks it will not happen soon, however.

That FB app on iTunes is a mess

I uninstalled it (not that I really use Facebook these days) because it was shite but every now and then I check back to see if it has been improved.

Sadly not (as of yesterday) and it's now down to 1.5 stars

They clearly give not a shit about their users and all I can say is it's a good job its free
