PicDialer 1.0 now in beta (01/01/07)

Updated 01/17/07

Thanks beta testers! I haven't gotten many problem reports so i'm going to assume everything is running fine.

I'll try and get a 1.0 final release by this weekend.

Updated 9/29/06

I got my 700wx on Friday, and by Saturday, I had created my first .NET compact application!

I'd been wanting a way to see a list of all my contact pictures, and then dial them. This functionality didn't come with the phone, and I didn't bother searching the web, so I created my own:

Ok checked it out...its nice to be ur first and I do have a few suggestions. First as per microsoft, they say make ur expanding menu on the right soft key and one action on the other. Then if possible maybe making it where u can also scroll the contacts on one page with the joystick/d-pad. Then make the right soft key scroll through pages maybe. I dunno but I think this would help with using one handed. if I think of more I will let u know.

ps nice app to be ur first.

This rules for the mere fact i only have pictures of the people i would ever call :P

Works great on my 6700 i dont mind the interface...likely going to use this as a Today Screen "Contacts Button" replacement

If you are looking for feature ideas to add: SMS, MMS, Email options maybe just to interface with VJPhonetools via commandline...mmm

Thanks for the feedback guys, i'll release a new version soon.

I started my 2nd app yesterday, and that's when I figured out the softkey standards.

There's not many Actions I can put on the left softkey, other than Refresh/Settings. I'll probably just put Settings there, and move Refresh over to Menu.

As far as usability goes, I initially tried to design it so that individual pictures could be selected with the d-pad, but that proved to be pretty difficult due to the default d-pad behavior. So instead I have the dpad switch screens, then to dial, you have to click the picture. I figure that's the best compromise I can do for now.

For SMS/Email/other ways of contact, I can add in a context menu on each picture, so that it'll bring up a list of ways to contact that you can select.

Speaking of which, does anybody know how to put my app in as a menu option on the today screen? Or know who does? It'd be sweet if I could insert it in there under the contacts item.
