Using Tizen’s C API

Posted on

Hello everyone, I have dedicated some time to hack the Tizen’s source avaliable at and to be more specific I’m focusing my effort on contacts integration. So I found a way to communicate with the Tizen’s contacts database, there is a C API for that and you can find the code here:;a=summary . To be honest I didn’t like this API and here are the reasons:

  • Some search functions like contact_foreach_contact_from_db() does not return all contact information, like the phone number. And I can’t understand why.

I upgraded my SDK to the new one and I realized that my SMS App wasn’t working anymore and I discovered that they made some changes in the messaging API after a quick  investigation. I couldn’t find a place where they say what was changed in the API for the 1.0 version, so if you made an APP download the newest SDK and test it !

Now that we are aware of this little inconvenience I will explain that changes that must be made to the SMS app to work in this new version.
