The world's fastest app for contacts
K.O.Call (King Of Call) is a iPhone utility designed to search and call an addressbook contact. The name you want to call is not in favorites list? iPhone with its "Phone" app, give you only the contact list to search it, and this is extremely difficult and cumbersome.
The solution is K.O.Call, an iPhone utility with simple and clear UI designed to quickly search you contacts in the address book.
The search logic is that the T9 system, based on the letters assigned to each key of the old telephone keypad. When typing K.O.Call consult an high performances internal binary index to deliver immediately (literally) all the entries that matches the typed sequence.
Unlike many other Apps out there, K.O.Call indexes all the important fields of a contact , such as the name, last name, company, all phone numbers and notes.
Operation is very simple and straightforward: when the application starts the user has a comfortable phone keyboard, and may begin to type a number (or name, or part of it). As you type, the powerful search engine will immediately displays correspondences between typing and various fields of contacts that match the same type. Let's take an example. If we have a contact in addressbook whose name is Antonio, typing the sequence 2 -> 6 -> 8 -> 6 -> ... certainly we will see it appear on the list, along with other contacts that match this sequence, perhaps in footnotes or in the name. A special case is represented by the indexation of the notes of a contact.
Since the notes field is typically used to enter descriptive text, often consisting of several words or phrases, the indexing engine record matches with the text from each of the words. For example, if the note of our contact is the text: "Manager of the consulting company for the website", the application will record the whole sentence, then the phrase "of the consulting company ..." then the phrase "the consulting company ..." and so on. In this way writing any portion of the notes for a contact, the contact itself will be immediately identified.

Once you find the searched contact, you can make two different operations: select a number or an address for that contact, or access the system contact UI. The first operation allow essentially to call a contact, to send a message, or to send an email. To do so, simply touch the display of the contact row, the application will provide a list divided by sections: The sections allows to
- Call a phone number
- Send a message / SMS
- Send an email
In each of the first two sections, each contact's phone number is presented, while the last is a list of all their email addresses. Just tap the number or the address of interest in the appropriate section and the application will proceed to call in the first case or to prepare the message in the other two.
The other thing you can do with a contact person is access to the contact system UI. The contact UI is the same UI that is accessed by entering the details of a contact using the system application "Address Book". This means that you can make changes to the contact by simply touching the button "Edit". After making the changes and returned K.O.Call main view, the indexing engine will evaluate whether to make an automatic reindex operation due to the changes or not.
Note: You can also make a call from the system board, touching any of the telephone numbers of contact.
Note: To manually make a reindex operation, consecutively press the button "*" 3 times on the keyboard.
