People App RRS feed

  • Question

  • Can i add/delete/search contact in the People app using the URI scheme provided from the store.

    Secondly can i add my app in the people app to every contact so that when the user clicks on a particular contact he gets an option to open the contact through my app.

  • First I hope for you someone with inside information can tell you if that is implemented.

    About the second; it isn't possible. THe people app is just an app and no real api's to directly talk to that app are available.

    Maybe you can implement the ContactPicker contract in your application. THen other apps can use your app to search for contacts through the ContactPickerUI.
