Last week I was very happy to get the 3.1 update and I really like the changes and improvements.

There are still a few things that I think could be better:

  • The search in the people application and dialer should remain visible
    • Though I love that we have n9 style scrolling back when you jump to a specific letter you still may have lots of contacts under said letter and scrolling back all the way up to get to search is counter intuitive.
    • By having a fixed/permanent area at the top of the screen the pulley menu can be accessed regardless of location in the scrollable area by pulling on the fixed area.
  • The search in the dialer and people applications should function the same
    • I have contacts that are only saved as a "company" search in the dialer does not search that field so I have to switch to people and search there this is counter intuitive especially since in SFOS3.1 the company field seems to have been elevated in it's importance when adding a contact. Also there doesn't seem to be a good reason why it should not search through the other available fields there too, the page looks the same as the people application it should behave the same.
    • As mentioned in the bug[1] I filed, the pulley menu in the dialer should be accessible at all times from the top tab bar in a similar fashion to what I proposed above for People.
  • Company only contacts need to be sorted according to their company field and not end up in the "#" section of the contacts.

To make search identical in phone add the following line to /usr/share/voicecall-ui-jolla/pages/PeopleView.qml

searchableContactProperty: PeopleModel.AccountUriSearchable | PeopleModel.EmailAddressSearchable | PeopleModel.PhoneNumberSearchable | PeopleModel.OrganizationSearchable

I added it right below

searchActive: true

I suspect that modifying PeopleModel will allow for companies to be sorted as I mentioned, however I have not found where it is defined yet (Sailfish.Contacts 1.0 probably but where is that located?)
