currently, people appcover just displays favorite contact avatars. instead it can display some useful info.

Add cover-actions to the appcover would be nice too.......

if a particular contact's details are being viewed, I prefer to have that information shown on the appcover when the app is minimized.

advantages: since there is no global clipboard functionality and since the text selecting is not similar to the usual ctrl+a/c/v behavior, I find myself typing the phone numbers to other messaging apps very often. and i prefer peeking and typing (over going to edit the contact and then copy etc.)

this could be applied to the phone app as well

I think adding some cover actions would be better.

"Adding a contact" can be one of the options.

Adding a contact, as suggested above, Plus directly to Search page... Essentially both the pulley options that are currently available can be added as cover action

Don't worry about copying to clipboard. Anyways, this option will be added in the forthcoming update. However your 'cover' idea is good.

I think a "copy to clipboard" would be most useful. OwnKeepass does this with 1st R->L swipe of cover copying username, 2nd copying password. It would be good if the People cover cycled through all the contact info for the selected contact, displaying them on the cover and copying to clipboard. This would remove the need for peek and type.
