Resco Contact Manager 2 (beta) Goes Live; Brings the "Social"

Contact Manager sort of came out of nowhere from Resco and quickly became a very popular phone app for WinMo (see our positive review here).

In a very quick turnaround, Resco today announced the beta of 2nd Edition of the app, which starts to focus on Facebook and even Google Maps.  Specifically, here are the changes:

  • Enhanced Facebook Integration
  • Support for Google Maps Application
  • Group Operations
    • Send SMS to group members,
    • Send MMS to group members,
    • Send E-mail to group members
    • Set Ringtone to group members
    • Delete Contacts
  • Fully Customizable Today Plug-in

We have to admit, using it for the last few hours, this is a very strong beta.  The replacement caller ID screen (always a tricky hack) runs very smoothly, our keyguard works on the Treo Pro and the customizable Today Plugin, while quirky, offers much needed flexibility. 

Curious about giving it a spin? Head to Resco's forums here to grab a .cab which is good for a 7 day trial (your previous registration code for 1.x works with this beta).
