This was my first application which was finished up to a point where it works, released to the public, then updated to v1.0.1.
The software was a relatively simple phonebook tailored to romanian users, as it featured grabbers to the only two phone companies at the time. The user interface was translated to three languages: English, Hungarian and Romanian.
The first version called the grabber functions in a loop to get the results. This was relatively slow as it couldn't give instant results when the user clicked the Search button. After several user feedbacks about this, I researched multithreading and reimplemented the search to be parallel on all the providers.
Shortly after the software got featured on Softpedia, RDS started serving the results as images. Although I wanted to continue the development of the software, I couldn't crack the cipher text which was passed to the image generator and I also couldn't write a working OCR at that time, I chose to discontinue the development of the software.
I was able to dig up this animated GIF of the software from my archive. I couldn't take new screenshots as the grabbers aren't working anymore because it's been way too many years since they were implemented.
