For every Windows Phone 7-inspired app, launcher, or theme we've written about, a half-dozen more, often clones, go unmentioned. But every now and then we find something we haven't seen before, and this is one of those times. It's called WP7Contacts, and as you would surmise, it's a contact manager inspired by Windows Phone 7.


The features:

  • Sync contacts from SIM and Gmail
  • Add new contact or edit existing one
  • Search contacts by clicking search button. If one contact remains swipe up or click for edit contact
  • Sort contacts by clicking all under people. You can sort by phone or email
  • Chose own picture by clicking on the picture under the All/With Phone/With Email
  • Quick search by letter by clicking blue letters. This opens the WP7 full onscreen Search Keyboard
  • In Edit Contact: Swipe left for Call, right for Messaging
  • Login to Facebook and Wall Post

As of this writing the XDA thread provides no feedback for the app. Willing to be a guinea pig? Hit up the download link in the source post, then let us know how it goes. As always, any feedback or questions should be directed towards the source thread.

    A little drama unfolding in the XDA thread, seems it's in closed beta and the OP is not in the club.

    I thought this was a new test version of this app with the same name https://market.android.com/details?id=milkmidi.minicontact but judging by the different java package name, it doesn't seem to be.


    why would i want a windows 7 look? i bought an android by choice and didnt get a windows 7 by choice

      Not everyone is so shallow that they made their purchase based on looks alone. There's a lot more to the equation than looks, and I don't think many people would consider stock Android to be attractive.

    I don't get it... Metro that is... what is it about screens with fonts too big for the titles to for is attractive to people?
