[new release] go2contact
I'm using claunch and wanted an easy way create a "photo shortcut
" to call/text people. I wanted to click on a photo to jump to a contact's summary screen
(the list with all the phone numbers, emails etc). Then from the summary screen I can decide which of the contact's numbers to call/text/IM.
This is a command-line
utility and is really only useful when combined with "launcher". You create a shortcut in your launcher (perhaps with a photo) and set it up to execute go2contact with the name of the person you want to dial. go2contact then brings up the contact screen of that person.
There's some other great utilities if you want to jump straight to dialing a number or texting someone (VJPhoneTools), but I wanted to hit the contact's summary screen
first since many of my contacts have multiple numbers
This is my first WM5/6 app so if you're inclined to look at the source and comment, please feel free. VC++ 2008 source is in the zip, installer in the cab
. Also, I'm using a fairly liberal OS license so you can feel free to use this code for your own projects provided you follow the terms.
From the readme file:
go2contact v 1.0

Download the go2contact .cab file to the WM5/WM6 device and open it using "File Explorer" to install.
Execute go2contact.exe and supply the name of the Pocket Outlook contact you want see the summary screen of as a single command-line parameter. The name should match the "File as" field in the Contact's information.
go2contact.exe "Doe, John"
Assuming John Doe is filed as "Doe, John"
Note: Executing go2contact.exe from the "File Explorer" will not work because you cannot enter command line arguments using "File Explorer". You will need to create a shortcut or use sort of 3rd party launcher application, such as cLaunch.
