Found bug in "Cards" today

Visited furniture store and wanted to have pictures of coffee table (along with price) to be linked to note card. After 5th picture taken/linked, note card is crashing on opening. Looks like memory is not enough to scale all the big pictures to thumbnails. Need to optimize it and cache thumbnails somewhat in database.

Better tiles caching with Maps (-)

Next version is almost ready. Works pretty snappy on emulator and my phone. Did optimization and constant feedback, so it's clear what application is actually doing when map does not have enough tiles to show on a screen.

Cards (-) progress

Working on including bunch of features to the app. I also found it doesn't do well on starting speed. Shows too much of a black screen. Should fix it as soon as possible.
What's up in next release? Schedule type got 'Weekdays' field. Would have an ability to specify set of days when schedule apply.
Included 'Picture' type. Could be assigned with any picture from the gallery.
Working on reimplementing search. Making it asynchronous and using standard search widget.
Date/time formatting is fixed to default phone settings.
Fixed some UI annoyances.

Would probably release it before fixing contacts import for Droid.
