There is a new issue in Android that causes accounts to beremoved during an app update, see http://code.google.com/p/android/issues/detail?id=66905The bug causes accounts of paid apps to be removed whenAndroid boots up. To work around this issue this app pretends toprovide the same account type that CardDAV-Sync provides. That'senough to convince Jelly Bean to keep the account.That's all this app does.Please open the app at least once from within Google Play to"enable" the workaround. It may not work properly otherwise. Onsome devices you'll have to install this app before you installCardDAV-Sync. Please try that if you still have problems.Please note that the bug is in Android 4.1, not inCardDAV-Sync!If you're not using CardDAV-Sync on Jelly Bean, you don'tneed this app. There is no need to give it a bad rating in thatcase! Please don't install it in that case.

Contact Editor Free 0.6.3.1
Marten Gajda
This is the contact editor (and only the editor) from the Android2.1 sources.I just fixed it to make it work with arbitrary contact sources(like CardDAV-Sync) and removed the dependencies on the internalAPI to make it work with Android 2.2 and later.So all credits go to Google.This editor is a replacement/alternative for your native editorand it's invoked in the same way. It will be started whenever youtry to edit or create a contact (and you select "Contact EditorFree").If you can edit all your contacts you may not have any benefitsfrom this app. It is useful if you use some custom Sync-Adapterthat does not feature its own editor (like CardDav-Sync) and youreditor can not edit those contacts.However some people reported it is useful if your phone'smanufacturer removed the ability to edit custom labels.Also, have a look at "Contact Editor Pro" an improved version ofthis editor. (https://market.android.com/details?id=org.dmfs.android.contacteditorpp)Get support and news via Twitter https://twitter.com/dmfs_orgThis app can not edit or remove contacts from read-only sourceslike Facebook or Cloudtact! This is due to the definition ofread-only!Also, if you see a blank screen when editing contacts that areaggregated with a Facebook contact, try to remove and recreate yourFacebook account. Facebook limits access from other apps whichbreaks the contacts API in a way. For further information seehttp://techcrunch.com/2011/02/22/google-android-facebook-contacts/Note regarding Events:There is a big problem with events in this editor (better: withAndroid). The Android SDK documentation states about the databasecolumn for the date: 'The event start date as the user entered it.'Unfortunately does every manufacturer have it's own opinion aboutthe format. Some are happy with 'yyyy-mm-dd', my phone uses unixtimestamps.So if your phone doesn't accept the 'yyyy-mm-dd' format tryentering a unix-timestamp ;-). Seriously, I think about removingthis feature until I've found a proper solution. You can help bysending me mails with your phone model, os version and whichformats work or don't work for you.Btw: just writing a comment like "Doesn't work on..." won't helpneither you nor me to get it running on your device. Please contactme if you have problems.Please report bugs by sending me a mail stating what happenedand what you did before it happened. Often the Market bug reportsare not very helpful without additional informations.known issues:* on some devices this app hangs when it is opened. If thishappens to you, please send me an email!* crashes in some very rare cases. I've no further informationabout those cases and I'm not able to reproduce them. Please sendme an email with your phone model, your OS version and what kind ofsync-adapters you have installed. Thanks!

Contact Editor Pro 0.6.6
Marten Gajda
This is the contact editor (and only theeditor) from the Android sources.I fixed it to make it work with arbitrary contact sources (likeCardDAV-Sync).Also this version got some improvements. Write me for additionalfeature requests.Get support and news via Twitter https://twitter.com/dmfs_orgCurrently, it has the following enhancements (compared to thestock contact editor of Android 2.1):* stateful editing: return to an unsaved contact with the newlauncher* option to set default account for new contacts* copy/move contact between accounts* merge data from another contact* remove a contact from a specific account* basic group management (still needs some work)* more predefined labels for phone numbers and emails (for customcontact sources)* labels for websites* support for editing "Relation" (not for Exchange)* support for Google's custom fields (Google Contacts only)* extra confirmation step when deleting fields (to preventaccidental deletion of fields)* additional fields in organization: department & role* date picker for events (can handle phones that store dates astimestamps internally)* set contact ring tone and "send directly to voice mail"* field for "Internet Call" (Android 2.3+ only)* allows to set behavior when back-button is pressed* collapse editor sections for aggregated contacts* option to disable phone number auto-formatting* more to come (write me)After installing this app you won't see any launcher icon inyour app list. It will be started whenever you try to edit orcreate a contact (and you select "Contact Editor Pro").This app will not edit or remove contacts from read-only sourceslike Facebook! This is due to the definition of read-only;-).Also, if you see a blank screen when editing contacts that areaggregated with a Facebook contact, try to remove and recreate yourFacebook account. Facebook limits access from other apps whichbreaks the contacts API in a way. For further information seehttp://techcrunch.com/2011/02/22/google-android-facebook-contacts/Please keep in mind that your sync adapter may not be able tosync all fields that Contact Editor Pro offers.Also, this app lets you edit some fields, that many contact apps donot even show (department, role, website labels). This is not aContact Editor Pro bug.Note regarding Events:There is a big problem with events in this editor (better: withAndroid). The Android SDK documentation states about the databasecolumn for the date: 'The event start date as the user entered it.'Unfortunately does every manufacturer have it's own opinion aboutthe format. Some are happy with 'yyyy-mm-dd', my phone uses unixtimestamps.So, before you can edit an event's date you will have to set thedevice's internal date format. Open the menu and select "settings".If your device doesn't recognize one format, try another one. Writeme if no format works for you!Btw: just writing a comment like "Doesn't work on..." won't helpneither you nor me to get it running on your device. Please contactme if you have problems.Please report bugs by sending me a mail stating what happenedand what you did before it happened.
