You can add shortcuts to just about anything to the home screen, including contacts. Just long-click the Home screen and select "Shortcuts." You'll see a list of shortcuts that includes three types of contact options, as shown in Figure 4-6. Those options are direct dial, direct message, and contact.

Figure 4-6. Shortcuts

Direct dial and direct message do what they imply, and immediately call or SMS message your contact with the specific number you've selected. Adding the contact option (the middle shortcut in Figure 4-6) is the most versatile.

Click once on the contact, and you'll see small icons for quick navigation to phone, message, Facebook, and the full contact file. These shortcuts are contained in a local, private database.
