    Default Flexible & secure mobile app for general contact details and web addresses etc

    I've been using the default Contact app on my Android-based mobile phone, but the more extensive the data I save there the more restrictive the app seems.

    Also, I'm pretty sure that storing account numbers and passwords in a Contact app is highly insecure, especially if other apps can access it.

    So can anyone recommend a flexible and secure app for storing (locally on the phone) web addresses, account details, passwords, misc notes, and preferably which incorporates a standard phone contact list I can use?

    I'm thinking some form of Filofax app that allows cross-links and structured notes, better still if I can define my own structures.

    TIA

    I'm not interested in apps that use the "cloud" in any form. The data must be stored locally, although if it can be synced to my PC so much the better.

    I use 1Password, as well as storing user names and passwords, it has a secure note pad facility and has customisable groups for memebership numbers etc.

If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones.ö

    I was looking for something similar, but found they were all focussed on "To Do" "% Complete" type lists and other tulip.

    I'm using Evernote now which seems quite good (you can title your own notes e.g. "Stuff to Download", "Books to Get" or whatever you want and it's fairly intuitive, but I suspect there are better ones out there.
