Hi, I wouldn't know where to start when it comes to creating an app but is anyone on here in the process of creating an app similar to Cabbage Mobile? I have a hero but I only get 200 texts a month, would be nice to be able to make use of another 300!

like eirtext on the iphone? to use your free internet texts provided by o2/meteor/vodafone/three?

I've been looking into it but theres not enough Android handsets in Ireland yet to make it worthwhile, I'm currently working commercially on an android product that will hopefully lead to the knowledge that will let me create something in my spare time in the near future though.

would be amazing to have an app like this for the hero. i bought an unlocked one so still have my free texts on meteor but my friend is getting shafted from going from free texts to only 200 per month

whoever develops this app first will have a major stranglehold on it and with more and more phones coming with android the smart money is on developing this app now rather than waiting for there to be enough phones in use

its a simple app...

hope that pleases you.

Good work!
Few issues, on the intial page could you add a link to configure your account, i found it a little confusing at the start and didnt realise to press the settings button on my nexus.
Also on my nexus the icon shows up fine but the text is aligned to the right and gets cut off, you can only see the first few letters of cabbage.

Regarding your two points:

1. Account configurations on initial startup
I have added a account configuration button when ur initial load the application. This button will disappear after you configure your account settings. But you will be able to access if from the menu button. I am only doing the menu button to save screen space and not be cluttered. The menu button is generally used as the defacto standard since the launch of the G1.

2.Nexus One "Cabbage" text not appearing correctly
I have a nexus one and I cant seem to see that problem. Is this happening to your phone on the Menu grid list?? could you give exact details so I can try to fix this problem later?

ya its happening on the menu grid list, its fine on the main phone page.
All i can see is cab and a little of the b. text is to the right, its like its been moved/spaned across
il try and take a pic later and upload it.

Also when i select a contact it doesnt paste the number into the contact field

be great to see a screen shot if its possible, just so i can try replicate it on my own nexus one... I just cant seem to see it here, but maybe I am looking at a different screen or something along them lines.

ryderster - excellent work man fair play.

any chance you could add a "top 10" quick contacts list? or even do you have the source for the code? my contacts lookup wont work since im using early beta of an eclair rom for my acer liquid.

could be a simple xml file that we could update manually by adding numbers to avoid having compatability problems with contacts.apk versions and even contacts in our web account!? just a suggestion

again good work!

No problem, working on the address book and the frequent used numbers,
il definitely stick them in, its just a matter of getting a couple of hours the weekend...should have it done for early next week
