More eye candy for Contact Search Pro
Added photo icons to the main application screen. You can toggle these on and off from the settings menu. Contacts with no photo’s do not show a ‘place holder’ icon, I thought it was neater without.
The settings to show contact photos does not affect the Quick Search screen, these will always show photos.
I’ve reworked photo loading within the application so that photos are loaded ‘on-demand’. This has improved performance significantly, but also I’ve seen this working on OS 1.6!
The problems mentioned below are no longer an issue.
Note that there is a noticeable performance hit with contact photo’s displayed that is proportional to the number of results returned. I’ll see if I can reduce this hit in later versions.
I’ve tested this on OS 2.2 and OS 2.1 using real HTC devices and all looks well. It doesn’t work for OS 1.6 which appears to be a ‘bug’ or unimplemented feature in this version. I’ve left the code in the application, so if you try it on OS 1.6 you’ll just see an empty placeholder for the photos. Sorry, I tried 😦
