Sign Syncs with EAS/3rd Party Contacts – Beta Testing
Simply Applied’s lead programmer has implemented EAS contact syncing with Sign. We have received a significant amount of interest in Sign from users who use EAS as their primary contact management, and we appreciate everyone’s patience as we have worked to resolve the issue. This has been our primary focus since releasing Sign 3 weeks ago.
Significant changes to the Android OS between versions 1.6 and 2.0+ have changed how the OS manages contact information and syncing from various sources. To implement a comprehensive solution which works effectively for both the earlier and later versions of the OS equally as well has proven challenging. However, the initial reports are that users who experienced contact syncing issues are now finding that all of their contacts are now available in Sign.
Simply Applied is now beta-testing the EAS syncing and optimizing the code so it runs efficiently and smoothly. As soon as the beta testing/optimization is done, we will upload the update to the market. Also look for a couple other new features in the update,including allowing the user to set the default action when opening Sign to either call or text.
