ContactsTap release 1.6 has been approved and it is now available for download from the AppStore.
The next release 2.0 (only compatible with iPhone/iPod OS 3.0 and later) is in testing phase and it will add a brand new feature. This feature will enable the user to choose whether s/he wants the action menu to pop up when the user taps on any given contact. If the user doesn’t want the action menu to appear (which is a default setting), s/he will be able to change this and replace it with a display of contact details. This is a useful feature for iPod users who cannot make calls from their device, but they can still use it as an address book.
ContactsTap release 1.6 has been submitted and it is currently being tested by the AppStore team. We can expect it to be approved by the beginning of next week.
What’s new in this release:
- Initial contacts load has been significantly accelerated.
- The Search option on the main contacts list screen has been improved. It no longer searches the contacts by the initial letters/figures only, but also by any other letters contained in the name/title. Say, if you want to search for a Richard, and you only type in cha, it will find the correct contact (and all other contacts containing cha).
- In the Action Menu for any contact from the main contacts list, the title has been added: thus, the user can now see which contact has been selected. Also, the “Delete” button has been given a makeover, and it is now red; and “Done” button has turned green.
