Full featured TRIAL-version (will show a message on start-ups after 24 hours).

There are a couple of limitations in Windows Phone itself, that stops me from doing all I want to do in the app.

Apps have no access to call/messaging history, so call history will only show history for whats done in the app.
Therefore no quick-tile with lost calls.
You should keep the original phone-tile on start (for lost calls) together with the People search tile. 

Apps can not edit or open a contact in People hub.
Apps have limited access to Facebook contacts.
The background-re-indexing might not work if you have more than 1000 contacts.

This app do not copy nor send any contact info from your phone.
It does not send your location to anyone, unless you do it yourself with the send-map-link-functionality.
My apps respect peoples privacy, always!

    I've not been able to use it yet. I'm trying to get the name Heather and so far the keyboard can't figure it out. Why not just use my phones' keyboard or have us tap out the name as would be done on a remote control unit or an older style phone.

    Should come preinstalled with every WP.

    This is a great idea and a huge improvement over just browsing, which is all WP8 has by default. The problem is it's just to dis-integrated from the default. I can only hope MS adds this back in some time. In some way WinMo 6.5 wad better than WP8.
