Android: Open Contacts Integration

Some people use a separate address-book app on android to keep their real contact list away from apps like facebook or whatsapp. One of this app is OpenContacts(F-Droid|sourcecode).

This would require a bit of collaboration with OpenContacts on a feature to expose api for getting access to the contacts:

I believe having an address book where you can specify what app is allowed to access which fields on the contact is usefull. You could even have the option to only give access to a special contact group like ‘work’ or ‘friends’ to an app. In general more access control is nice IMO.
