LS Contacts - Your Unlimited Contact Bar for LS/NC
This tweak will add a horizontal scrolling bar where you can add unlimited selected favorite contacts!
Right after you will install the tweak for the first time the view will appear with an option to add contacts right from the lockscreen. PLEASE NOTE - this is a multi-selection adding contacts and has no search function from the lockscreen, if you wish to add your contacts with the search function do that from the settings pane. You can add as many as you want!
What you can do with those contacts?
- Call them
and with LONG PRESS GESTURES you can:
- Send them WhatsApp message
- Send them regular text message
- Email them (if email address is defined)
- Have a little cake near their image to know that this contact have a birthday today!
LS Contacts has a lot of options to configure and a lot more to come, currently the options are:
Choose between 2 existing view styles!
Always On Top - configure the LS Contacts view above every other UI aspect (such as media player) if disabled - it will go down in your notification stack (if you have something more important to see above it for example)
Page Contacts - A different feeling when scrolling between your added contacts, it will not be free scrolling as the default option offers, it will divide your contacts into pages
Ask Before Calling - will present a confirmation dialog before you call your contact (so you wont mistakenly call anyone)
Dark mode - dark mode style your view! (currently applicable only to stackview style)
Main View Transparency - You decide how transparent your view that holds your contacts will look like!
Title can be removed by setting it's alpha to 0 in the colorpicker or by removing the text from the field completely
Position - set your title position (Left,Middle,Right)
Text - You decide what your title will say ("My most favorite people", for example)
Choose title font - choose the style font for your title
This is where you add/remove contacts from your list
Restore to default & Respring:
Will delete all your tweak preferences & Respring
PLEASE NOTE -
if you are going to use the feature “send WhatsApp message” please make sure that your contact’s phone number includes a prefix with your country code BEFORE you add him to the list - this is due to WhatsApp API limitations.
You cannot add the same contact twice, it will skip the addition and you won't be notified. if your contact has more than 1 number it will recognize the first one only.
I have tested this tweak with over 200 contacts, performance are great! The view is added once to the stack (unless it is re-added with always on top) so you won’t feel any battery consumption since no actions are happening in the background, only when you scroll through your contact cells.
And as always, waiting for your feedback and requests if any, always love to hear new ideas!
