I would like to highlight nicknames in the contact list using a bigger font and first/last name under that, in smaller font (practically opposite as implemented by default)

Is it possible?

I am running Android 2.2 (CM6.0.1)

    Could you suggest me a different way to reach the result? Another rom, or a market app?

  • There are quite a few Contact List replacement apps in the market, you won't need to root or replace your ROM since the default Contact apps is just another regular Android application. I haven't actually used them, so I can't recommend any good ones, so you will have to play with them and see which ones you'll like.

I've tried Go Contacts and Go Dialer and it seems really handy with useful features and beautiful look!

P.S I wanted to post a comment but I don't have adequate permission for "comment everywhere" right now!

  • This seems like an answer to me.
