Looks good. Please add a button so I can easily paste my google voice # to clipboard.

Hoping something like this (something like the aforementioned Vocito) comes out soon that's not a widget… An app like this really deserves to be on my real desktop…

Needs the ability to combine duplicate contacts... Also, how about some growl support?

I have been waiting for something to fill the gaping void left by Vocito for the longest time. While this isn't the complete solution I am looking for, it is a huge step in the right direction.

There are some visual glitches in Snow Leopard, but it is still functional.
