Vito Technology today announced the availability of FunContact, a Windows Mobile contact manager that brings iPhone experience to your non HTC Touch or HTC Touch Dual Windows Mobile Pocket PC. While HTC Touch (with a future ROM update) or Touch Dual users don't need FunContact, since HTC's TouchFLO application works similar, other Windows Mobile phone users can scroll through the contact list just with a flick of a finger. The animated menus and sparkling interface with big tap-ready buttons make contact managing a real fun!

Apart from its fancy finger-friendly interface FunContact provides quick access to the list of favorite contacts and to call history. Contacts can be sorted by first name, last name or company. The touch & feel principle of FunContact makes it a truly indispensable Windows Mobile contact manager.

Vito FunContact is now available from Vito Technologies also new released iWindowsMobile.com website. It costs US$ 19.95 but a free trial is available as well.

Cheers ~ Arne

It seems VITO has stealed the work from a Belgian developer.
It is SOOOOO similar to PocketCM!

Ok, to be fair, the idea originally belonged to Steve Jobs. Now, FunContact actually reflects the ideas of user interface implemented in AstroNavigator II (originating from iPhone experience) released by VITO Technology in April 2007. Immediately after release we started working on FunContact. PocketCM appeared somewhere in August 2007 and the ideas of this program were also clearly borrowed from Steve.
PocketCM is currently free but you don't know if it will become paid or not. And its theme is not great and somewhat said I should say with all the dark colors. Anyway, you can download FunContact from http://vitotechnology.com/files/Funcontact.exe (.zip or .cab) and see for yourself what you like better.

Pleeeease... save it. PocketCM is skinnable and has SEVERAL light skinned themes. There's even a theme now that makes it look EXACTLY like FunContact. As far as inspiration goes, not when EVERY module and EVERY function is being copied.

I can repeat again and again. Both FunContact and PocketCM borrowed the idea from iPhone, that is why they both look exactly like the iPhone contacts. Every module and every function is borrowed both by FunContact and by PocketCM from iPhone. If you like free software then just use it. Some like the guarantee that purchased software provides. Like we provide free updates for the whole year since purchase.

To be fair, there was a finger scrolling app available when I was using a wm2003se unit..Iphone concept isn't apple's..
