NewContact: Add Contacts From Anywhere (Activator)
Having the ability to add contacts fast is always a plus. Whether at a party, an event, or something of this nature, you're bound to find someone you want to exchange numbers with. Generally speaking, you have to go to the Contact.app, press the "+" button, and go through a lengthy process to get a contact in. A newly released tweak named NewContact, by Andrea Oliva (@abart997), brings an alternative method to quickly adding contacts.
NewContact offers a quick and easy solution by providing a basic window to put contact information in. Setting NewContact to an Activator method and using the method will bring up the window. Within the window, you type the respective information in (First name, Last name, Phone number). When you tap "Add" it compiles the new contact information into a contact profile in your Contacts.app. At this point, the tweak is a simple implementation but could be greatly improved. Here are a few suggestions for future updates and features:
- Have the ability to add email addresses
- Specify what type the number is (mobile, home, office, fax, etc.)
- Be able to add multiple numbers/email addresses at the same time
- Add a photo (either from camera roll or by camera)
It is currently available on Cydia for $.99 so give it a shot. It is available on all firmwares and devices up to 4.3.3. (does not include any of the iOS 5 Beta firmwares)

I can see how some will like this, but I've never thought it was hard to add a contact. All I do is hit the phone button, dial the number and hit add contact. Seems like this takes the same amount of time to me, and costs you $1. :?
