Contacts! Widget

Postby zuggabeck » Mon Nov 02, 2009 6:51 pm

Contacts! Widget 1.0 can now be downloaded in the android market.

This is a widget (4x1) for your homescreen, showing your favorite contacts (the 4 contacts that you have dialed most) with name and picture. With a click on a picture, you can call the person, write a sms or email.

Check out my blog for updates and screenshots: Contacts! Widget

Future updates will bring various options how much contacts and which contacts are shown by the widget (eg. the top 4 contacts in the call log).

Contacts! Widget 2.0 released

People who downloaded my app asked me two questions: Why is it not possible to directly define which contacts the widget displays? Why is it limited to only 4 contacts?

Well, now you can directly choose which contacts the widget displays. And the limitation to 4 contacts is also history.

New features:
- Define your own list of shortcuts
- Unlimited number of contacts
- Build groups of widgets and give these groups names
- compatible with Android 2.0

For example, you could define a group called "Work" where you put all your business contacts and another one called "Friends & Family". You could dedicate a whole screen to a call log, or split a call log up by putting a widget with 4 positions on the center of the homescreen and 2 more widgets (=8 shortcuts) on the right or left screen.
Now it's up to you :-)
