Live Groups Lite

Live Groups Lite


This app allows you to place shortcuts on your homescreen for your contact groups (Friends, Family, Coworkers, etc.). Clicking the shortcut will launch a folder showing the contacts in the group. As you add contacts to your groups, or remove them, the folders will always show the contacts currently in the group.

You can choose to have contacts in the groups sorted either alphabetically or by usage, with the most frequently contacted contacts at the top.

When viewing a group, the app also provides a means for you to manage the group, adding contacts to it or removing them from it.

If in the groups list, you see multiple groups with the same name, turn on 'Show group accounts' in the settings. In all likelihood, the duplicate groups come from multiple gmail accounts, or having the same named groups locally on your phone and also in your gmail.

Due to Google's new requirement to provide a physical address when selling apps, the unlock key has been unpublished. I will provide the APK file for the key free on request. Eventually the main app will be rewritten to not need the key.
