Android / IOS Adobe Air Native Extension Contact Manager

My first contribution to a public repo.
A few simple functions enable reading and writing contact informations from ios and android devices from adobe air application without directly accessing the database. This very nice and straight farward extension has been started by memeller.

As always android requires manifests. Just for accessing contacts informations:

<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.READ_CONTACTS" />

But more if Your app is going to add or remove any info:

<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.WRITE_CONTACTS" />
#only if adding:
<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.GET_ACCOUNTS" />

This extension does not allow any acount info to be read but beacause Android manages it differently GET_ACCOUNTS is needed for displaying a native popup single choice box for defining to wich acount contact will be added.
