Tip #2: Auto-generated Groups

Buddy Groups supports a feature to maintain two automatically generated groups: A group for people whose emails share the same company (or organization) name, and a group for people who live in the same city as you. These features can be turned on/off in “Settings -> Auto-Generated Group...”

Work Email:

If you have labeled any of your emails as a “work” email address, Buddy Groups can identify the organization name (that comes after the “@” character). Buddy Groups can then find all individuals in your address book who have an email address that ends with the same organization name.

City Groups:

If you have specified your home address (city or zip code), Buddy Groups can use this information to find others who live in the same city (or share the same zip code).

Tip #3: Changing Visual Themes

Buddy Groups provides 12 themes to choose from. From the start page, tap on “Settings.” Then select “Themes...”

Tap on the theme you would like to use. You will notice the background image change as you select new themes.
