If you’re running iOS5, RichContacts features the last twitter Status of a contact in the social tab. This is, of course, given that this contact has his twitter username filled. This tutorial is to show how
1. Go to the Settings App
2. Tap on the Twitter row
3. Make sure that your twitter account is correctly set up
4. Tap on the “Update Contacts” button￼
5. Once the update is complete, launch RichContacts, you should see a twitter username for most of the contacts you have both on Twitter and on your iPhone.
6. Tap on “Social”, Twitter Status is here!
As you probably know by now, one of the top new set of features of iOS5 is Twitter deep integration right inside the OS. One of those features is the apparition of a “Twitter” field inside the iPhone addressbook.
RichContacts 1.5 already leverages that feature by automatically displaying the last tweet of a contact whenever that field is set up. If the tweet contains a URL, just click on it to be directed to that link.
Tip: To populate this field automatically, go to the Settings App:
Twitter > “Update Contacts”
RichContacts 1.4 introduced a new way to sync your phone contacts with your Facebook contacts. You no longer need to go through each of your contacts to sync them. Upon the first launch of the app (or whenever you want from the Settings menu), you can sync all of your contacts at once. Contacts that have the exact same name across Facebook and your address book will be matched automatically, for the others, you will be presented with your Facebook contacts that are more likely to be the person you are trying to match. Try it now!
It’s a “bug fix” version. You can again call, send e-mails and use all the Contacts default action right from the Info tab.
Thank you all for your feedback. New versions are on their way with better exchange support, better syncing and even more rich contact information!
