In general: this should be part of app settings.

I have >1500 contacts imported from gmail; many of them (unfortunately not all) are correctly tagged by First name and Last name (eg First name is Adam, Last name is Smith) All of these names are sorted by First name: Adam Smith in at the beginning of the list. Is it by design? I find it very annoying...

Anyway, thank for the developers.
