    Not a single shortcut widget, but one that gives a grid of a group, etc?

    I was looking for something like i had on my X. At the top it displayed there facebook picture then you could add quick tasks like Call and text with one widget, you could make the widget have more functions if you wanted to. They SORT OF have it on this, but it looks like you have to create a seperate shortcut for each task (text, call, etc). Anyone know if there's a way to get it like on the Droid X?

    if you go to your apps then scroll over to widgets you can add a contact for each person to a home screen. Tap on their picture and it brings up phone/email/text/address/online accounts. If you do not want all of this info you can just add a direct dial or direct message button to the home screen the same way as described by using the appropriate widget.

    Yes, that is how I have it now, but a scrollable widget (like the one for bookmarks) would be nice. I had this with Launcher Pro and it was very handy, without having to create a series of separate contact icons.

    Create a single contact icon on your screen and then continue creating more single contacts and drag them onto the original contact to create a contact folder. If that doesn't work for you, then there are several nice contact widgets in the market for free.

    That is a pretty good idea! I will try that out. I have Beautiful Widgets, but they don't have a contacts app, either. I could try a standalone from the market if I don't like this folder idea. Thanks!

    Edit: tried it out and it works great! And it takes up even less screen real estate than a widget, thanks!

    is there a "People" or "Contacts" App on ICS? or do you just use "Phone"? i have an EVO and i believe "People" is an HTC App. i'm wondering what stock ICS uses. i forgot to check this when i was looking at the G-Nex yesterday.

    There is a separate contacts app and it is called People, it is a redesign of the earlier Android version.
