  • Separate apps cannot communicate with each other except through contracts. There is no way for your app to directly see or modify the People app's data.

    Your options are the contact picker (since the People app will present its contacts that way) or to track contacts yourself by connecting to the various web services that the user may have contacts in.

    Which language are you using so we can move this to an appropriate forum?
