Default Does anyone know if it's possible to add a phonebook?

I wanted to know if it was possible to have a Phonebook in Rockbox? Not a yellow pages type phone book but one that you put the name of a friend and there number. I'm not good at compiling or anything that's why I'm asking here.

Thanks in advance.

Just put a text file with the names and numbers on your player.

That's what I've been doing but I wanted a phone book so that if I'm out somewhere
I can just put the number right in the player through the keyboard in the rockbox instead of having to memorize the number 'till I get home and type it in the .txt file.
(this is if for some reason neither of us have a pen & Paper.)

I've been thinking the same thing too.

I sort of thought of making a dummy mp3 file for each person, just to get the ID features. Then you might do something like

Genre = Phonebook
Artist = last name
Title = address
year = telephone number
etc.

from there, once you got the file loaded, you could view detail and get all the information.

I don't know, I need to think on it a bit more, but sort of thinking using the id tags may be one way to go about it.

Are there any compiled branches that have it included already? Like I said above I can't really compile myself. Mainly because I don't understand the instuctions given by rockbox.org.

Well why don't you just record the adress, number etc. and then when you get home save it on a .txt file? You don't have to memorize it! Or you can easil just use the text editor!
