sync with your contacts
First of all my appologies for so many days without any sign of life from the backstage! We are still extremely busy behind the scenes, but as we don't want you to lose sight of our work, here is the next post (b.t.w. thank you for all your feedback in this early stage!). In my last post I presented one of the main concepts of fruux - synchronizing data with the fruuxDatabase and other computers. Thats the foundation of the whole system. Staying in sync with all your different devices is of course very important and thus nice to have, but not really beneficial if you are syncing outdated data all the time. your friends, family and business contacts move from one town to another, get new emailaddresses, new phone numbers etc. this is why we are adding functionality to fruux, which will allow you to connect your virtual (business)card with the addressbook of your contact (and the other way round). nontechnically speaking that means: you and your contact will always have up-to-date emailadresses, phonenumbers, adresses etc. of each other - automatically. your addressbook will maintain itself in the future. of course you'll have comprehensive privacy settings for each connecting to another user (like just sharing your business contact details or just sharing your private contact details, etc.).
