Contact Sync

Just a short status update (I really need to configure Poster for this blog. ;)).

I implemented and published a first experimental contact sync. The contact sync currently has multiple issues:

  • Character encoding issue (for example umlauts)
  • Photos do not get synced at all
  • Some servers (for example eGroupware) behave very strange. I believe this is, because they don’t know my app
  • Contacts don’t show up on the TouchPad at all

The TouchPad issue is quite strange. The contacts are correctly stored in the database… the same code works fine on the phones. But on the TouchPad the contacts app and also Just Type won’t show the contacts at all. I need to investigate that further…

Currently I advise you to be very careful, if you use contact sync… maybe first try One-Way-From-Server sync.

BTW: I fixed an issue that made the app forget One-Way-From-Server (or similar) if the server requested a slow sync and made it switch to “Two-Way” sync. This is now fixed and slow sync will switch back to One-Way-From-Server correctly.
