    I'm sure I've just missed this option somewhere, but I can't find a Just Type option for 'Add New Contact'.

    I've always wanted to be able to type a name using Just Type, then select 'Add new contact' and a new contact would be added to my address book with this name. Then I can fill in the other details.

    That would be great and with a semicolon as seperator you could even fill the first telephone number automagically (which is often the info you get when meeting someone):

    Name Firstname ; 00129383727634

    Code for this is already there in UC Patch for just type adding new events with date and place

    Should be fairly straight forward to be honest for at least 1 of the 2 parts

    There are 2 parts to it:

    1. Getting it in the actual list of actions to choose (easiest part):

    In /usr/palm/applications/com.palm.app.contacts/appinfo.json, replace the existing content with the following:

    Code:
    {
    	"title": "Contacts",
    	"type": "web",
    	"main": "index.html",
    	"icon": "icon.png",
    	"splashicon": "icon-256x256.png",
    	"splashBackground": "images/splash-contacts-list.png",
    	"id": "com.palm.app.contacts",
    	"noWindow" : true,
    	"keywords": ["Addresses", "People"],
    	"universalSearch": {
    		"action" :  { 
    			"displayName" : "Add Contact",
    			"url"         : "com.palm.app.tasks",
    			"launchParam" : {"action":"addContact"}
    		}
             }
    }
    The second part would be trickier, you would need to add the actual action (addContact) as per above to the contacts app. For inspiration you might want to look info /usr/palm/applications/com.palm.app.tasks/app/controllers/app-assistant.jsjsjs

    Around line 428 there are interesting bits:
    Code:
    	if (arg.taskSubject){ //quick action

    Funnily enough, the developer page for Just Type even mention this functionality as an example:
    Displays apps that launch with a specific task, for example: send a new email, write a new memo, add a contact, etc.
