Is there a way to sort contacts by date added, or at least see contacts that have been recently added? I'm running android os 2.2.
I suppose it might vary by carrier, but I only see options to sort by first or last name. (Motorola Droid, unrooted, Android 2.2.1)
I also don't see any apps in the Market that would display contacts sorted by date added.
I'm not even sure "date added" is captured.
If you're syncing with Google Contacts you might be able to kludge something together by applying a group to all of you existing contacts ("Old Contacts"?) then, whenever you review your contacts anyone without such a label is, by definition, recently added.
It is, as I said, kludgy. I don't see any other way to do it.
This is useful if you want programmatic and CLI access to your contacts in sorted order.
If you're on Android then most probably your phone contacts are synced with your Google account's contacts which you can access using Google Contacts. Now, using the Google Command Line Tools you can return contacts in order of filing if no other sort method is set.
For example, use the following command to get all contacts in a text file in recently added order:
Was looking for something similar. Looks like this might do the trick, $1 though... Recent Contacts
