I was talking to my developer about the limits of Android Widgets. A widget uses Android memory to store stock data. Since Android 3.0 we’ve been able to scroll widgets. This allows us to store more data than shows on the screen, allowing you to scroll to see it all.
I asked him what the limit was.
My developer didn’t know.
So I said “Let’s try making a contacts widget.”
“For what contacts?” he asks.
“All of them”, I answer.
So he does!
DejaOffice for Android now gives you an Android Desktop widget that shows All of your DejaOffice contacts. Whether that is 300, or 3000 or 30,000, they are all there.
From the Desktop Widget, you can dial the phone, email or text any contact on your list. All without opening any apps. Give it a try!
From Android Desktop, Long Press to get the menu for Widgets. Select DejaOffice. Select Contacts View 4×4. Place it on your desktop. On most phones you can resize this to be any size you find convenient.
DejaOffice also provides widgets for Month View, Today, Tasks, and Memos.
