► Requires android 1.6 or later.
Shows contact photo if available, or random built-in image if not (several image kits available).

4 sizes: 3, 4 & 8 contacts, and a 1x1 smart list shortcut

Supported languages: english, spanish

Version 1.3.0 changes:
► Adds new 8 contacts 3x3 widget in addition to the other two.
► All widgets size increased to use better the space. Note that there are yet some empty space above and below. I can't avoid it because the widget must fit in landscape format.
► Widget interface more clean with improved text visibility over confusing wallpapers. Also, there is a new option to highlight contact names with a marker to get even better visibility.
► New settings to customize your widget.
Improved contact's image retrieval for some devices.
A lot of minor user interfaces enhancements and fixes.

Version 1.4.0 changes:
► Old 2x3 widget becomes a 2x2 widget. In response to many of your comments about the empty space for that widget format, I have been exploring many possible solutions. I think this is, by far,  the best option.
► Some minor bugs have been fixed

Version 2.0.1 changes:
► Redesigned, built from the ground, new widget draw system to use all the space for the widget. Available for 3 and 4 contact widgets. 8 contacts uses the old system yet. I'm working on it.

After update, remove the old widget from the screen and add it again. The old widget may not work right after the upgrade until you do it. 
► Several bugs fixed
► Now, the widget is more robust

○ This widget shows just the recently contacted numbers?
By default, it mixes recently and frequently contacted numbers in order to get the more "useful" contacts. You can customize it to get only recently contacted numbers o frequently contacted numbers.

○ My widget is frozen after some time of use
Version 2.01 solves all freezing problems and makes this widget very robust, so if you have this problem with the latest version, be sure that you don't have a task killer or this task killer is no killing this app. Contact me if you have this problem to help you.

○ Can I send sms with one touch or this widget is only for dialing?
Yes, of course you can. The bottom-right icon let you choose dial or sms mode.

○ The widget gets stuck in "loading" after first install or update
There are a few strange reports of this. Ensure that you have the last version and restart your phone. It will work fine.

○ How much battery uses this widget?
This is a widget with very, very low power usage. It's most time sleeping so don't consume battery at all. Only needs power to update contact score, that is made each 30 minutes. Unlike other widgets, this one can't connect to internet to send usage stats and other stuff. This allows lower power consumption, as well as being reassuring from a privacy point of view.

√ Feel free to leave comments about desired improvements, new feature requests or report a bug. Your feedback is welcome to make this the useful contacts widget that all we want.
