    But it seems that I can't delete any contacts off my contact list. I tap and hold on the contact, the dialog menu appears where I have two options: "Contact nickname" and "Delete Contact". When I tap on "Delete Contact", nothing happens. Please help me fix this :) Thanks for this great app

The tutorial seems outdated si
