Thats what inspired the app yes, but none of their code is in the app. I'm proud to say its all my own code =)

In the process of playing with lighting models, and different motion models for it.

So does anyone have any suggestions or requests for this thing?

Oh, btw - in case you havent guessed, I'm the developer =)

This app is AWESOME!!!

Good job!
Cheers!

P.S. When you search for a name would be great if the contact list scrolls faster to that position instead of showing only the contact without moving the list.
In a visual app like this I think it´s better with movement. What do you think?

Very nice. Would like to be able to click on a contact and message as well.

Also, this is minor but if it was possible to make the default contact icon (no pic) the little green android instead of the current generic man, I think that would be a nice touch. Otherwise great job and look forward to seeing more.

Could you please send the logcat output either to myself or AzureNightwalker (above) so we can look into resolving this!

Thanks

hehe i wish i could understand how to do that.. i just though, i describe how and when it happens, maybe that they can search for the problem themselves.

but i dont understand anything about error-log's, sorry. great app tho'!

Love this app but turning off the 3D Rotation (rotating of boxes during scrolling) does not work on my Droid X.

on Sprint Epic 4G disabling 3d rotation does not disable either. would be nice to be able to push the search button on the phone as well, instead of having to press menu > search, dont know if its supposed to or not, but if it is it doesnt work on epic. Also would be nice to be able to have an image background, i.e stars or something instead of just colors. I would also like a txt option and agree with the person that said something about doing a speedy animation to the contact instead of just making it pop up. ill pm you with a diff icon for the app if i can think of one

its possible to scroll past (way past) the top and bottom of the list... makes sense to stop it or have some sort of rubber effect at the ends of the list.. also maybe some sort of animation similar to the touchwiz animation for the swipe commands. Also, as someone posted above I cannot turn off rotation either.
Other than that this is a cool app. maybe look to adw as for what kind of settings to be able to change animation wise (speed/elasticity).

    Updated app with a few little changes:
    * Integrated more tightly with the phone (Now allows setting as default for viewing a contact(
    * Bound search functionality to search key on phones with a search key
    * Fixed 3D rotation bug

    Thanks for all the feedback you have all given - It is definately helpful!

    List of things that I am currently working on:
    * Phone only display option
    * Scroll bar & first letter previews
    * Pinpointing and fixing the 'scroll past boundaries' bug

    A major work item i'm wanting to do is replicate functionality in the stock contact list, since as yet this app is not suitable as a full replacement

    Keep suggesting features though! I'm always open to suggestions =)

    Anyone want to make an icon for the app? Credits will be given where due!

    First of all let me congratulate for an awesome app!! Let me confirm that it is running peacefully on my dell Streak Stock Froyo!!
    However there is a small suggestion that I would like to make here:
    There should be an option to have selective accounts of contacts
    Like you can select in the stock phone book, you can hide twitter and face book contacts or can just have contacts with phone numbers in the display view..

    However once again Great job!!:D

    Peace Out!!
