    Contacts Blast Lite
    [​IMG]

    Ever since we released Contacts Blast a few months ago people have been asking us for a demo version to try before you buy. You asked and we listened! I'm pleased to announce the release of Contacts Blast Lite to the Android marketplace!

    Contacts Blast Lite has nearly all of the amazing features of the full version that hundreds of people have come to love but at a try-before-you-buy price: FREE!

    Getting Contacts Blast on your Android smartphone has never been easier before. You can now download Contacts Blast Lite for free and get the sleek, high quality and stream-lined user interface with loads of features not available in standard contact management apps. You get all the high quality graphics, the polished icons, the smooth scrolling and everything else that makes Contacts Blast one app you will be using to show off your phone to your friends and family.

    Contacts Blast Lite includes many of the exciting features of the full Contacts Blast including:
    * NEW: SMS Blast - easily send a text message to an entire group of contacts
    * NEW: Email Blast - easily send an email to an entire group
    * NEW: List view - you can set Contacts Blast to use either the original Icon view or the new List view. You can configure whether you want icons or the list individually for landscape and portrait mode in your preferences screen. By default Contacts Blast will use list view when in portrait mode, and icon view when in landscape mode
    * NEW: Custom Background: You can select whether you want to use your main phone desktop background as your Contacts Blast background OR use the new color wheel color picker to set the background to a solid color (black looks great)
    * Contacts Blast easily becomes your default contacts app. Activate Contacts Blast automatically from the Android desktop with use of the green "Call" button and you will be able to choose between Contacts Blast or the default dialer. No extra work necessary. Easily reverts back to default behavior whenever you want.
    * Super high performance. Every aspect of the app has been highly optimized since the initial release and provides a smooth, consistent user experience whether scrolling through huge lists of contacts or browsing through your groups.
    * Configure exactly what buttons you want to be displayed on your main screen in the preferences menu. SMS, Email and Edit Contact can now be turned on or off to your liking.
    * Speed Dial your contacts with the new speed dial screen. Every group supports the speed dial screen which can be activated with a single touch.
    * Intelligent contact searching. Tap the search button or simply start typing and Contacts Blast will rapidly narrow down the list of contacts that match what you are typing. A single click will automatically select the contact you want. Search is very intelligent and will narrow down your results in real time as you type.
    * Sleek high quality and high performance graphics and icons.
    * Stylish and colorful user interface that shows off the power of your Android smart phone better than the default black and white contacts manager / dialer.
    * All standard phone features including touchpad dialer and call log.
    * Assign pictures to your contacts and slide through contacts by face and name.
    * Screen automatically rotates when the phone is turned or keyboard opened.
    * Voice Mail button for one touch voice mail dialing.
    * Switch between groups or view all of your contacts at once.
    * Perform most tasks in a single click on the main contact screen.
    * Click and hold a contact picture in the list to automatically speed dial their default number.
    * Full support for standard Android groups such as Recent calls, Favorites, and All Contacts
    * Scrolling interface neatly displays all phone numbers per user.
    * Have a contact with multiple email addresses or SMS numbers? No problem! Contacts Blast makes messaging easy.
    * Send SMS text messages or email in a single click.
    * See your current Android background transparently behind Contacts Blast.
    * Fully supports GMail "their picture" feature for your contacts.

    What are you waiting for? Load up the Market on your phone and search for Contacts Blast or browse to the Applications -> Communications category and try Contacts Blast Lite today!

    So just so it's clear from the long post...what is the main difference in the two apps?

    All of the features listed in this post are available in the Lite version. Certain advanced features in the full version have been disabled in the lite version. These are mainly related to using, creating, customizing and managing your custom groups. We also limit the number of times you can use some of the powerful new features just released in the full 1.4 version such as SMS Blast (send an SMS message to an entire group) and Email Blast (email an entire group). The Speed Dial grid screen is also limited. Once the clock hits midnight it will let you use those special features again (up to your daily limit).

    All of the core phone functionality such as viewing the main phone groups (favorites, recents, all contacts, etc.), making calls, browsing through contacts, using voice mail, using the dial pad, and so on are fully enabled and have no restrictions. We also provided all of the customization options for changing how your screen looks, including layout styles and color picker.

    Thanks for the information...sounds like a great offering. I use Star Contacts right now but I will certainly try out your app.

    I really like the direction of your app, your release came at the same time as Hive - look at their code, it is an open source app (I think) their export/import feature is very interesting.

    I'm sorry, I relaly i wanted to like this app, I did. However its just too slow, especially when switching from landscape to portrait modes. I've tried star contacts and phonebook too and keep coming back to the standard dialer.

    Yes it has fewer features, but the speed tradeoff is just not justified at this time.

    Firmware version - UK cupcake.
