Screenshots from Serval Nightly Builds

Hi all,

Here are a few screenshots from the nightly builds of what will likely become Serval Mesh 0.90 in a couple of months time:
The main display when running the mesh.  The number at the bottom is your mesh telephone number.  If you provide a display name, it also shows there. 

This is where you setup your mesh telephone number and provide your name, to make it easier for people to find you on the mesh.

The "Contacts" button on the main display gives you the choice of showing who is currently on the mesh, or showing who is in your Android contacts.  The Android contacts can now have mesh contact details, to make it easy to call or text via the mesh from the Android contacts.

Showing the current contact list gives you the details of any phones on the mesh, as well as their  secure identifier (SID).  You can call, text, or add them to your Android contact list.  Names are displayed instead of numbers when available.  The "Broadcast/Everyone" option lets you send text messages to everyone on the mesh, as a simple kind of group chat or micro-blogging service.  This will be refined into an off-grid Twitter-like system in a future release.
