    I like the way the widget shows up in the scene but what I cant figure out.. I dont want device to do anything but show me the contact card for the person. It wants to assign a specific action, like call mobile. Anyway i want for the default action to be view the contact card. I have only a few favorites but the action isnt the same each time I correspond with them. sometimes- email, sometimes - call, sometimes SMS

    You get the picture

    Anyone have any ideas? or Apps?

    I wanted the same thing as this is how I had it on my HTC mogul running touchflo2d. And just like on touchflo if you click on the person's name and NOT the photo, it'll bring up their contact card. And there lies the problem. With this capacitive screen it's almost impossible to be so precise and touch just that part of the screen with their name. It can be done but it's frustrating as hell and takes many tries. Usually you end up just hitting the photo and dialing out to the contact. This would be even worse with people with fat fingers.

    The only other alternative is to use shortcuts to those people and put them on a blank screen. By doing this you have the option of having it just "open" the contact when you press on it OR assign a default action to it.

    I had the shortcuts to people and that worked but didnt like the look as much as the people widget. Did figure out something

    It doesnt look at cool as the people widget but on a fresh screen you can show your favorite people and when you touch them it opens the whole contact card so you can choose the action

    Fresh screen - add - live folder - starred

    This is all your favorite people and the ability to show their entire contact info when you touch them

    Yeah I knew of that, and you're right it doesn't look as cool so that's why I don't use it. Haha. I just open up the people app and click on my "favs" from there. I wish they made a resistive/capacative screen that allowed you to be more precise with your fingernail then with the tip of it. And I don't like stylus' either.
