Important for users with HTC Hero in the US: Due to a bug in the Sense-UI , this widget won’t work correctly on your phone. When you reboot your device the widget isn’t updated anymore. If you delete the widget after a reboot, you will get a force close error. If you want more details on this bug or if you have already downloaded the widget, please contact me!
HTC Desire & Incredible: It looks like as if this bug also occurs on these devices. I already started working on a new version that can handle this. Unfortunatly this means a complete redesign of the architecture of this application So, this might take a while.
Displays a customizable list of contacts on the homescreen. There are various sizes in vertical and horizontal orientation available. You can choose between a call log and a custom list, where you can directly define the shortcuts shown by the widget. You can extend the number of shortcuts by building groups of widgets. This way you can have 16 shortcuts (=4 widgets) on one part of the homescreen. Of cource you can have multiple groups active on the homescreen, e.g. a call log and a user defined list. If you want to directly dial a contact (or write sms, mail), you can define default actions for every contact.
To add this widget: Longclick the homescreen, choose widgets and select “Contacts! Widget”. If you want more than 4 contacts, just add more widgets to the homescreen.
