Beta testers needed

for a desktop address book widget

Saturday, March 26, 2005 by paxx | Discussion: DesktopX

I am on the final tweaks of a desktop address book widget I've been working on for the past few weeks. Here is a preliminary screenshot:

It includes a larger view for more details about the contact, of course an edit/add contact dialog, a search function, etc. It's a standalone address book, as it doesn't integrate with any other software. But I did program an import feature that will import from a LDIF file. LDIF export is available from Mozilla or Netscape adress books. I have no plans to inclide an Outlook import tool.

I will probably be ready to send it to beta testers in a couple of days. I just want to fix a few last things here and there first. Would anybody be interested into beta testing it then? I'd like to have a few people test it on different machines before I make it totally public on WC.

Just post here if you're interested. The only requirement is that you have DesktopX 3. Thanks.

All right. Thanks for your responses. A first beta should be ready tomorrow. So: Alternate Setting, piers38, thomassen, roadrunnerm, Jeff T, crissy14 and chrism583, you should have mail sometime tomorrow. Happy Easter. If anybody else wants to beta test, just say so. The more the merrier.

Shakey: you want to beta test too, or you just want to wait for the final release?

As an admin, I can see your emails in your profiles, so unless you ask othrewise, I'll send it there.
Development update: I am trying to fix one bug right now. Once ths bug is solved, I should be able to send it out. Will probably towards the end of the day (Eastern Time: GMT -5).

OK, mail sent. Everybody who requested the beta, please check your mail. Note that I sent two. You can trash the first one and only keep the second. roadrunner and Jeff T: GMail doesn't seem to like the attachment for some reason (it says "Illegal attachment"), do you have an alternate email I can send it to?
