Hi Guys!

I don't know if this has been talked about much before. But i was playign around with the new google contact manager and i was able to get it to show up by itself, in google apps accounts and for gmail accounts that don't have it yet. I have documented my work here:

So the jest is you can just go to the url of the contact manager ;)

and it will show up!

If you use google apps, its:

Pretty simple.

I wish there was a way to do posts and what not so that the "api" that is exposed in the ajax transactions was accessible. I would love to sync with my phone. Let me know your thoughts.
