    Only 2 things but pretty big things:


    1. A contact - when I visit a contact's 'card' in HTC People it has all of the numbers listed in a pretty similar fashion which makes it really difficult to quickly find the one I want...the iPhone has everything quite clearly marked and it makes calling a much simpler process. Is there something I can do about this?
    2. Music by folder - thiis one really annoys me. I just want to be able to play tracks in a given folder that I've created and copied on to the SD card. I use endomondo and I have to create a playlist on the phone which is annoying.
    If I can fix these then I'd feel much better about the phone.

    Thanks,

    Lylos

    Meridian (sp?) player can do folder play. It's actually the only way to access podcasts, but it does work nicely. It's my mp3 player of choice anyway.

    3 player also for audio, not sure about contacts. Certainly its not as big and bold or maybe as much whitespace as the Iphone. Is it that bad? There are a fair few alternatives on the marketplace if you search for "contacts"

    Contact Flow and MyFaces look pretty neat, not sure if any of them fit the bill.

    I use an app called 'Phonebook'

    There is a contact home page with options to call, email, text or even find address using maps.

    Thanks for the response, I've tried out the phonebook app but I'm not that impressed - I'll just wait for something better to come along, they may eventually sort it with newer updates.

    As for third party apps, I like em but endomondo looks for your default player which means I can't use the 3rd party apps.
