A couple of weeks ago I was looking around for an assessment for my students and realized that the whitepages didn't have an app. So I made one. What do people think? The students have made equally as good, and even better :-) Its a great feeling releasing a new app.

I don't have an Android device at the moment so can't try out the app itself, but I suggest that you proofread the description on Play. In my experience people are more likely to download an app when the description doesn't have spelling and grammar errors.

Not a complaint, just a suggestion :)

Wow really cool. Would be great if you could edit the contact info prior to saving... I'm very particular about the format of my contacts... also if it saved the address aswell?

Other than that its pretty cool.

Sigh .. it always happens to me, I really get into creating something but can't get enthused with the paperwork. I'll get on to it immediately :-)

I looked at editing the content, that is doable, if I can connect in to the contact edit window, otherwise I have to make my own. I never thought of saving the address, its now on the todo list. BTW ideas like this are great for my students to work out as well...
