    Now, why is this program called 'Custom' Addressbook?

Custom Addressbook is unique, among the many apparently similar programs, in that this program enables you to define your own addressbook. Each person has different needs, wants to store his data in a different order, and wants to store different things (not everyone wants to store birthdays or first names, but some people do!).
! Custom Addressbook even enables you to define your own addressbook from scratch!

For instance, you can easily define your own 'attributes' (like 'Phone Number', 'Email Address'). You can also define 'categories' (these are groups into which you can organize your data, e.g. 'Friends', 'Office', 'Family', etc.).
See this screenshot to get an impression on how to define and order attributes yourself.
