Access the AddressBook without the UI

edited November 2013 in Plugins
My focus has generally been business apps and thereby most of my experimental videos are based around business-y requirements than game requirements. In the latest quest, I have wrapped the AddressBook (only for iOS) and might make that available for use as a Plug-in. Just wanted to know, how important is it for the users here on this forum? (I think there are not many takers)

Here's a peek into the lua part of things
 local addr = require "AddressBook"
 
 local addressBook = addr.getAddressBook() -- return the AddressBook as a table
  --[[ The table contains the following members
      id              --> use this when trying to delete a record
      name        --> The first name of the contact
      surname   --> The lastname of the contact
      email        --> The email address of the contact
      mobile, home, work, iPhone --> the different phone numbers that might be present
  --]]
 
 local tblRec = {fName = "Jayant", lName = "Varma", phone = "123456", email = "jayant@email.com"}
 addr.createAddressBookEntry(tblRec) -- creates a new record in the AddressBook (does not check for duplicates as yet)
  -- Need to standardize it with the field names returned from the addressBook, like name and surname
 
  addr.deleteContact(theRecID) -- delete's the record from the AddressBook
  -- Uses the ID as returned by the getAddressBook function above
This would be a paid plug-in, which is still better than paying the Enterprise (meaning very high) fees for this functionality on another framework.

and a video to see how it performs
