What's New in Version 2.0
Search Contacts!!! You asked for it and now you have it!
Who would have thought? I assumed I was the only one who wanted my Google Contacts and iPhone address book separate, but both still viewable from the iPhone? Well I guess I'm not the only one. And this application does it simply well and straightforward. I assume those asking for more functions want integration instead of separation (why? if you need a full address book, there's one already, or sync it with Google). For those who want to keep the books separate (I use Google as an archive, more like a contact manager), this is the app for you.
No caller ID, possible spam enabler?
I just got my iPhone 4. I had been using a Blackberry which does a great job of integrating Gmail and MS Exchange mail, contacts and calendars.
I was diasppointed this app didn't integrate more completely with the phone - it is useful, just not as useful as it could be. It really needs to integrate with the inbound dialing and map numbers to contacts for caller ID.
More concerning to me was that shortly after installing this app my Gmail account started pumping out spam before Gmail automatically changed my password. I can't finger this app definitively but the coincidence is significant. My account had never been hacked like that before.
Found this to be pretty useful for my other gmail account. No issues at all with it
