Quick Add 0.5.2 update!

I've done a very brief update to fix some little bugs and make things more stream lined.

I've got some unique features coming to the first stable version 1.0, keep it updated!

Please update and tell me what you think! Your feedback will make it better.

Great news!

I have been given the chance to develop this application as part of a Design process module in my degree that I am studying.

Which means I will have a lot of dedicated time to improving and updating it.

I've done a huge amount of research the past few days into features that aren't available on current applications and I'm going to be adding them over the next few weeks.

If you have any suggestions it'll be sure to help!

neat

I see you've added tyler durden to your contacts. be careful with that dude, imo!


Anyways, Dev question -- do you add it to a specific account, or do you add it just to the (null) phone account. Or do you use the deprecated 1.5/1.6 contacts API?

(none of these things are wrong or bad, im just curious)

I'm a big Chuck Phalanuik fan, can you tell?

I've actually built a contacts object/class (I'm an OO programmer :P) based on the 2.1+ contacts api to make it easier for adding contacts.
I can basically write newContacts.addName(name); instead of the 8+ lines of code each time to add a single bit of detail to the contact.
The accounts are all stored on the phone currently but I will be adding the extra functionality as I go.
I'm debating putting the newContacts class on github as an open source for people to add to their projects because the api is bloody annoying.

Oh by the way - listables is awesome, nice work!
