Today we feature No. 4,892 in a perpetually ongoing series of applications that should be included natively in the BlackBerry OS. These are normally apps that perform a specific function that might not warrant a big investment, but are simple and convenient enough that they’re worth having around. This one is called Add Contact, and it makes saving numbers from your call log to an existing contact an easy proposition. There really isn’t much to the app. Normally when you get a call from an unknown number and you want to assign it to an existing contact, you have to copy and paste it. That’s fine — it takes just a few clicks and a couple of seconds. But I’d far rather have a native function that allows me to add it directly to an address book entry. As you can see in the screenshot, the app will ask if you want to save the number as a new contact or an existing one. Select existing and you’ll get a dialog box that prompts you for the proper field — home, work, mobile, fax, etc. After that you’re done. Again, this is so simple that RIM should just include it. You can get Add Contact for 99 cents. It is also available as a free trial.
