[My APP] Initial Search
Finally we have an app that makes searching for contacts in Korean quick and convenient - something that is taken for granted in the English-speaking world. Whereas English speakers have long been able to type in any letter of the alphabet and have a list of contacts stream across their screen, Korean requires that the person’s whole name be typed out. This app creates a much appreciated and time-saving shortcut by providing a list of names from your directory that corresponds to the first consonant in Korean and directly links these with options to call, text or e-mail the chosen recipient. The only drawback is that it does not work for vowels, in which case the first character of each syllable of the person’s name must be punched in. This app can also help foreigners deal with hard-to-spell Korean names.
