    Hi Everyone,

    I've just released my first serious iPhone app and am looking for some feedback. If you search for 'My Contacts Everywhere' or 'Lynapps' (my company) you should find it. It's a free download (for now) so please take a look and let me know what you think.

    Here is the blurb from iTunes:

    It's Friday night. Held up at work. Meant to be meeting a friend. Phone battery dead. Can't remember anyone's number! Panic!

    Relax! With the My Contacts Everywhere app your contacts will always be available, even when you're phone isn't. Download the app today to ensure you are prepared in case this ever happens to you.

    The My Contacts Everywhere application allows you to retrieve the phone numbers and email addresses of all your contacts via another iPhone with this application installed, or online at http://www.myContactsEverywhere.com.

    Best of all, to use the service you don't need to register for a new account with us. Simply login using your Facebook username and password and you'll have instant access to your contacts.

    You never know when you might find yourself without access to your contacts. Download this application now and ensure your contacts are secure and accessible whenever you need them in the future.

    For assistance, more information, to report a bug or suggestion please visit the website.

    The iPhone is a poor man's computer, phone, and music player all rolled into one. I don't sync my iPhone pto a computer (generally I just use it for iPhone updates, and iPhone restores).

    I've had to re-enter all contacts, calendar events, and notes twice over after my iPhone crashed, and found online back-up and restore services ASAP.

    I'll check this out. If it can back-up more fields than the service I now use, I'llmake regular use of it.

    Although I'll wait till I have a lot of free time.

    One service I tried 'failed' (that's what the app status bar said) halfway through sync, and my contacts were a magnificent mess.

    Nope, you can use anyone's iPhone as long as they have the app installed. Besides, do you have your contacts synced to all your computers (work etc)?

    Currently the service allows you to store contacts' first name, last name, company name, phone numbers and email addresses. If there's interest I might add other fields but I figured those were the most important when you need to contact someone. There is no risk of the app messing up your phone as it is a one way sync (phone to server). I did that purposely so that you could use the service on anyone's phone without messing up their address book.

    Anyways, let me know what you think or if you have any suggestions!

    Cheers,
    Lyndon
