How to setup PeopleSync App to sync Contactzilla using CardDAV on Android

Contactzilla works best with the native iPhone or Mac Contacts CardDAV, however, it’s possible to get Contactzilla working on Android with the addition of a third-party app.

One such app is PeopleSync which can be found in the Android Play Store and it works great for syncing your business contacts between your team on android devices using Contactzilla.
