Do you always find yourself moseying into the Contacts app to add new friends, family, and acquaintances?

Doing so can be somewhat of a clunky affair, especially if you need to do so while in a hurry.

NewContact is a jailbreak tweak available on Cydia that takes some of the thought process out of adding new contacts to your iPhone’s address book…

For $0.99 on Cydia, NewContact gives you the ability to map a quick contact-adding shortcut to any activator gesture that you desire.

The purpose of this tweak is mainly suited for quick on the fly contact additions that you can clean up later. I say this because it only features three initial fields on the pop-up window when adding your new contact.

If you’ve been searching for an easier way to quickly add contacts to your iPhone, NewContact is the obvious choice. Again, you will need a jailbroken iPhone to download this tweak from Cydia.

What do you think?

  • Really neat. I currently use Google Sync to manage my contacts.

    Where does this add the new contact? To the “All on My iPhone” group or do I get to choose where it goes?

    Do you think NewContact will let me add a contact directly to my Sync account?

    • The version I reviewed just did All on My iPhone. But the Cydia version may be a bit different. I had a pre-release.

  • nice app I’ll try it soon, thanks Jeff.

    A tweak i’d love to see some1 make for tweak week is an autohide dock, like windows does, literally just dissapears and pops up when you touch the bottom portion of the screen giving you easy access to all your icons however you have em set up but full visibility of your wallpaper.
