Hurrah – we can finally add the iPHone Contacts app to the home screen …
This has been on *everybody’s* wish-list for the iPhone – the ability to add an icon to the home screen for the iPhone Contacts application. And thanks to Erica Sadun and MMI, now you can!
No more having to launch the phone app in order to get access to your Contacts list.
Erica had published a ‘TUAW Responds’ post on this a few days back, but it involved a bit of manual labor (a few steps, including editing a plist file) that the lazy and less tech-savvy among us may have shied away from.
Now the good people at MMI (ModMyiFone) have released a one-click solution. Good stuff … very good stuff. Just install the Contacts Homescreen application – and that’s it, you’re done and the Contacts app icon is on one of your home screens.
The Contacts Homescreen app can be found under the Productivity category, and in Recent Packages right now of course.
I’ve tried this on 1.1.3 – not sure whether it works on lower firmware.
