    So far its working great for me. I like that the search feature is fast to access. Maybe add the "( ) - -" to automatically be added when entering a phone number.

    I am loving the app so far! Thanks for allowing me to use/test it. I have had no problems or crashes. I do have another suggestion, if you are open to it.

    I live in the US, but receive calls from international locations. Would it be possible to have an International mode that rather than using the local country will attempt to decode the incoming number to determine where to look it up, and if the decoding fails or there is no good path, then default to the local search provider?

    I realize this might take a second longer, but for people that receive a lot of international calls, it would be nice to have.

    If it is not able to find a match, perhaps a simple reference to what the country code is, would help. For Instance, I got a call from New Zealand, which doesn't happen often. The number started "+64 ". If it wasn't able to look up the actual number, a message of "No Match (New Zealand)" would have been great. I assume the country codes are limited in number, so they could easily be a simple offline look-up table in the app.

    The program parses the phonenumber and uses the search engine that is the best for the country the call comes from. Today i have 13 countries it can use (havent addes new zealand). It's a great idea to show the country when a parse failes etc.

    Ahh.. Ok.. Than nevermind.. I thought I read earlier that it used the search engine of the local country code.

    Seems like cydia has downloaded the wrong information. Try to remove the source repo.lannerhjelm.se. Then add the source again. Hope that will help!

    Soon it will be in Cydia. But repo.lannerhjelm.se should work.

    Thanks. Removing and re-adding the source fixed the hash sum mismatch error.

    Another request. Can you add audio feedback?

    For instance, if the number is not on the phone book and thus it is searching for a match, play a short sound of Sonar. Then if there is a match, play a light bell ringing. If there is no match play a buzzer.

    Then later, it would be cool if these three notifications are configurable.

    It would be neat if I knew what was going on as I am trying to get the phone out of my pocket and can't see the screen yet.

    Thanks again for such a great addition to the iPhone.

    Great idea. That would be cool to implement. I put it in my wishlist.
