The datebook application allows you to look up for a record in the address book (menu Options/Phone Lookup), and to automatically insert the associated data.

For instance, let's select Mr. Neuman's details using the standard Phone Lookup :

Datebook view Lookup view Result

What is inserted isn't configurable : you get the first name, the last name, the phone number and nothing else...

Now look at Mr. Neuman's record in the adress book :

Address view

As you can see, there is a lot of valuable data that could be used by Phone Lookup.

PhoneLookup Hack allows you to define which fields Phone Lookup will return. You can even customize how they will be returned, with line feeds or additional text.

For instance, you may want Phone Lookup to insert the company name, work phone and full address, on multiple lines for legibility (left screenshot), and here's what you get when you do the same lookup as above (right screenshot) :
