We are trying to use the contact api to get a list of contact on the device and it doesn't seem to work on iOS.
It's working on the simulator but not on the device.
We tried the sample included with the library on a device and it doesn't work. Maybe iOS 6 specific ?
Can you be more specific than "it doesn't work"? Are you getting an exception, a build error, what?
Sorry, I should have given you more details. There is no error, the list is returned empty. After some investigation, I found that this is caused by the new security feature included in iOS 6. You now need to request permission when accessing the contacts :
0.5.1 has been released with a new API to resolve this.
