The next update, ContactsTap version 4.2 will be available in a few days. Thanks to everyone who has downloaded, rated and reviewed Version 4.1, I have taken all your suggestions into consideration while preparing Version 4.2.
Due to a bug that appeared in iPhone OS 4.1, the Related Names are no longer shown in Contacts details screen like they used to be in all previous ContactsTap releases. This bug even made ContactsTap 4.0 crash whenever the users tried to view contacts details. I have reported this issue to the Apple team and they have admitted this bug and promised to fix it in next 4.2 release of iPhone OS. Because of that, I had to do a temporary workaround for the Related Names feature to make it available in ContactsTap 4.2. It will add one icon to the contacts details toolbar screen where you will be able to see and add/modify your related names along with adding your custom labels. This solution will stay in the ContactsTap until Apple solve the problems with related names.
This release also dramatically lowered the application footprint and improved the memory full events handling. Application now works nicer with the rest of the system and especially in low-memory conditions.
From now on, our users can also make Skype calls directly from ContactsTap. You need to activate the new “enable Skype calls” option and then, whenever you tap on any phone number in ContactsTap, it will ask you if you want to place Skype or native mobile call. Choosing Skype will launch the Skype application with the selected number ready to be dialed.
Some of the new features in ContactsTap 4.2:
- Enabling Skype calls
- Managing Related Names for each contact
- Seamless and transparent handling of all memory notifications
- Support of loading contacts even if the application is in the background.
- Memory full problem.
We are currently preparing a video tutorial and a complete Help and FAQ files, which will be available soon both here on the website and on the app itself. We are also preparing a version in French, which will be available in a few weeks. For now you can use Application Release Notes option from settings to see the short description of new features.
