    I am searching for a solution to export .nbu files into .xls (only for contacts), this app is ok, but it saves every item into a separate file, so if you have 400 contacts and export them, you will get 400 files, each with one name/phone number. Unlike Noki it is free, so I cannot complain, is a fine and useful app.
