Every Android app i have used crashes when trying to modify or add contacts.

  1. feature request interim, have alien dalvik launch people app to edit contact or add when selecting add/edit contact in Android app which would prevent crashing of the Android app, but without taking you to the specific contact desired,
  2. fully integrate Android add, edit contact function into alien dalvik, lets you do it from the native Android interface based on app wrapper design,

Most important function in a phone i believe is: 1. contact, message, call, address location, website-

Here is my reddit support post with additional detail:

coderus i am very happy with my NON-android phone. I am using sailfish, you should give it a try.

then why you want to use android apps so hard? aliendalvik is not standart android, it's very limited parts.

For me personally its for convenience as i transition my life from Android to Sailfish. First that takes time, and second sailfish doesnt always have a satisfying alternative to an android app. For example Yelp is a fantastic catalogue of businesses and business reviews but doesnt have a Sailfish client, so when i want to add the business to my contacts, or map directions to the business it crashes. I have to copy paste each field instead which is doable but not the mobile experience that i want.

For others i would say it loweres the barrier of entry and switching making it far more compelling to get Sailfish in the first place.

this is not android, this is different os with limited android support, and you want to make it android with limited sailfish support. no.
