Address Book

Joe Gallo

The address book interface is fairly simple, allowing users to add, remove, or edit an entry. When the program starts up, if the user has not already entered his/her own personal information, an entry form appears asking for such information. At anytime, the user may edit his/her personal information by accessing the preferences menu. An address book entry can potentially contain a description, name, username (for the Skype interface that the videophone uses), list of addresses and phone numbers, and a picture. Each entry can hold as many customly labelled addresses and phone numbers as the user desires.

The user may prioritize the address book by opening a separate application and customizing the order of the entries in the book.
