Ronny Gydar and Gydar Industries, the developer behind the fantastic Windows Phone Game Trine's Hangman, is working on a new Windows Phone project. Nope, the new app isn't another word puzzle game but a contacts search engine for your Windows Phone. What started out as a project to help his mom with her Windows Phone has become People Search (Finn Folk for those in Norway).
People Search is designed to make the process of searching for contacts and contacting them with your Windows Phone a little easier. People Search indexes all your contacts by user selected fields (name, phone numbers, email addresses, etc.) and as you dial the number, name, email, etc. a list of contacts is generated above the dial pad. People Search reminds me of the old Windows Mobile type that would pull up a list of contacts as you began to dial out the number.
As you see the contacts and tap on the contact of choice, you will see options to call, text, email, and other options depending on how much information you have on that particular contact. People Search looks like it could be a useful app but Gydar Industries needs your help to iron out all the kinks.
Gydar is looking for Beta testers for People Search and if you're interested, head over to Gydar's website and use this contact page. You'll need to provide them with your Live ID and the Beta is limited to 100 participants.
Got questions? There's a discussion going on over here in the WPCentral Forums about the Beta and the head honcho himself, Ronny Gydar, checks in on things regularly. People Search looks interesting and we'll keep you posted on its progress.
Update: Well that didn't take long. We just received word that Gydar Industries just received their 100th request. Unfortunately that closes the Beta to new users but you can always chime in over in the Forums and follow the Beta progress.
