First of all, let me say that I've been using the web app for about 5 minutes, and love it! It looks very polished and is very fast.
My idea is to include a way to browse your google contacts. Maybe include favorites or "speed dial".
Very excited to watch this app grow
Here’s the Google Contacts editor.
We have thought about making our own contacts editor (which would update your Google Contacts), but we think Google has done a very good job on the contacts editor…
Favorites/speed-dial — all coming :)
I have a contact that is listed as a number and I want to change that to a name and don't know how to accomplish that.
can you star a contact, instead of a text to make a favorite contacts list?
Instead of saving a message as a favorite, save the contact as a favorite, then it becomes like the speed dial that is suggested above.
I agree this looks very polished - can't wait to see how it behaves behind the corporate firewall!
How about an optional link out to the Contacts editor?
Ditto on Favourites
Oh my god, do they still have that Horrible old design for contacts?? It looks soo SOO much nicer if you go to gmail > contacts, its all the same thing, but looks so much more polished.
