We have just launched Tacts 1.4.0.   This new update includes some important features.

Find your contact by Source

iPhone allows users to connect to and sync with external contact directories such as Google or MobileMe. Thus many users has contacts from different contact Sources in their address book.

If you sync with multiple address book Sources, most contact managers can only view one Source at a time or are not able to distinguish these Sources.

Tacts 1.4.0 creates a special group for each Source. Possible contact sources include: Exchange, MobileMe, LDAP, CardDAV or Local. Now with Tacts, you can quickly access and manage different contact Sources.

So what are those colored dots?

Within a group, each contact will have a colored dot in front of their name. The color represents which Source a contact is from. For example, yellow represent contacts from an Exchange Source.

Customizable sort index

You can now choose the language index type for sorting contacts. So if you are using English interface, but have many Japanese contacts, you can use the Kana+Roman index type to properly sort both Japanese and Western contact names.

Previously Tacts automatically determined which index is best for users by detecting the system language used. However, some users would like the option to configure the index to accommodate names from other languages as well.

Sort by Department
In addition to sorting by Name, Company, City and State, Tacts can now sort a group by Department. So now you can easily find your Sales or Finance contacts for company ABC.
