iPhone users with lots of contacts in their address book will be familiar with the sense of frustration at having to go through at least two screens before getting access to your favourite contacts. Aussie developers Mokten have created an app that lets you create shortcuts to your favourite contacts on the iPhone’s home page.
The aHomeIcon app lets you insert a wide range of functions to a dedicated button on your home screen. You can call a contact, SMS a contact, email a contact, as well as link to a song in your iPod library, or create your own audio file.
With contacts, you can even add a photo to the icon to identify them quickly on the homepage.
It's a free download, and should be a must for any iPhone owner looking for some pretty basic functionality Apple has traditionally avoided including.
