build an iPhone app (read all 11 entries…)
Wow.

I actually made my own useful app mostly from scratch. It’s really simple. It uses the Address Book to allow you to email a phone number, email address, or other piece of contact information to someone.

Two steps:
  1. Click a button, and up pops your address book. Drill down to the email address or phone number that you’d like to send, click on it and the menu takes you back to the front page.
  2. Click the “Email to whoever you like” button, which opens Mail with “Contact info for So-and-so” and whatever you selected in the body. You have to fill in the To: line manually.

Super simple, but it’s something that I wish the iPhone could do. I’m not going to submit it or anything, since I’m positive that someone else will do it a thousand times better than I have, but it was a very rewarding exercise.

I have one technical question about this. I made the button in Interface Builder, but would like to enable and disable the email button unless after you’ve selected a contact. I couldn’t figure out how to get the button’s reference when it was created in Interface Builder. Anyone know how? Or should I delete it and make the button manually in Xcode?

I'd love this app

I’ve always wanted to be able to send contact info via email or text. If you expand it to text that would be hot, too.

Thanks!

I’d rather it send a text too. It’s a bit over my head at the moment how to send a text, if it’s possible at all, but if I can figure it out, I’ll update it.

Am I able to use your app when you’re done—or does it have to be part of the Apple app store to get it into my iphone?

I’ll take it when you’re done!

I would have to add it to the App Store for it to get on any phones. And right now, there’s some problem with my developer program token and they’re not answering my emails. Probably a bit busy at the moment with App Store madness, I’m guessing.

Don’t let this simple app fool you, I’m still FAR from being able to build anything that is worthy of launching. Maybe in a couple weeks though…
