» PocketCM Description

PocketCM is a finger friendly contact application for PDA phone, it will allow you to scroll to you list of contacts, call them and edit them.

Actually it's the rewrite in native of ContactManager, a .NET version of a finger friendly contact.

Are you using a VGA device? You'll need to download and install a VGA theme here.
If you are using a device with a 240px square screen, you'll need the a theme that support this screen size.

What's different from other contact application:

From ContactManager here's what's new/modified:
- Native version: this version doesn't use .NET compact framework, it's written in C++.
- Faster version: I've put some time improving performance, on my device, it goes quite well, tell me about you.
- Faster display: drawing is also optimized, however, it may have some issue for advanced theming, tell me about it.
- New fade effect while calling/edit conact/set picture, this offer a better transition between application, tell me what you think.
- Contact update if added/changed/deleted from other application (including activesync).
- Memory footprint: No more .NET crap, picture of contact should also take less memory.
- Ability to remove contact picture.
- Edit contact now goes to edit page directly.
- New contact now goes to edit page directly.
- New theme packaging (a theme in one file instead of many).
- Letter bar between contact.
- New setting for non latin alphabet (coming with localization but now it's technically possible).
- SMS conversation panel: hitting SMS button now goes to an SMS page. It will allow to send an SMS display previous conversation with this contact...

To close PocketCM Contacts, press for 250 ms to phone button at the bottom right of the screen. To minimize PocketCM Contacts, tap in the upper right corner.

Oh, one more thing, I could not seem to turn it off without un-installing it. That is a shame since it is a wonderful looking app

This thing look great puts the icontact to shame; however two major issues. I own a HTC Touch Diamond and I found I could not assign a ring tone to a contact unless that ringtone was in the windows/rings directory and of a midi or wma format. This is a big deal to me since I like to use MP3s and place them on internal storage. The other issue was a skinning issue.

As a personal choice I would recommend iContact instead because of its better user interface (and its cooler)but go with what you like :-)

Installed it on my Sprint Mogul (PPC6800) running WM6.1 - Program crashes if I try to delete (remove) a contact from the contact list. Any thoughts?
