I'd like to announce my latest app, 3 months in the making: Avatar! Avatar is a photo dialer with the ultra-smooth scrolling and low memory footprint characteristics you love about iContact and iDialer.

Avatar is extremely easy to use:
  • Flick to scroll among your contacts. Contacts without pictures will not show up.
  • Tap an avatar to bring up details. This is where iContact integration kicks in: if iContact is installed, Avatar will use it. If not, it will bring up the standard contact manager.
  • Tap-and-hold on an avatar to call using that contact's "smart property": the one that shows up in the standard contact manager. "<m>" = mobile, "<w>" = work, "<h>" = home, etc.
That's it! Easy!

Avatar features:
  • low memory footprint - only around 100KB on VGA
  • Works on all screens: VGA, QVGA, WVGA, WQVGA, Square
  • AppToDate support
  • Ultra-smooth scrolling
  • Integrates with iContact and iDialer

WOW!
Works great on imate 9502 wm6.1!

Impressive, as always.

But, can we have a way to close the program?

However...
Fdc Task Manager show 0% cpu usage when minimized.
Am I wrong? Amazing if this is true

Toggle
I made Mortscript prg to toggle Avatat display on/off through HButton.

AT = ReadFile ("\Storage Card\My Todays\a.txt")
If (AT = 1)
AT = 0
Minimize (Avatar)
WriteFile ( "\Storage Card\My Todays\a.txt" , AT )
Exit
EndIf
Run ("Storage Card\Program Files\Avatar\Avatar.exe")
AT = 1
WriteFile ( "\Storage Card\My Todays\a.txt" , AT )
Exit

Just requires a folder named "My Todays" on the Storage Card, a simple text file in that folder named "a" containing either a "1" OR "0" to start.
Then create a shortcut to your windows start menu, then hook up with HButton.

How about the first contact icon (top left) and last icon in avatar to minimize?

Or a left to right swipe across screen to minimize?

This addition to the iContact/iDialer/GreenButton family is awesome!

Excellent.

How about displaying a generic image/photo for contacts without custom pictures?

Closing Avatar....
If you touch the top right corner of the screen it will exit the program. (It stays running in the background though).
If you want it to COMPLETELY close after you exit, point your registry editor to

HKCU/SOFTWARE/SUPWARE.NET/AVATAR/exitOnMinimize
and change the value from zero (0) to one (1).

Hope it helps!

Thumbs up Avatar
and just to add my feedback to Doug - another great piece of software, well done and another essential add-on to my HTC Touch HD (Blackstone).

Superb!
