I love the fact going to advanced setting in Dekko just brings up a 
message saying 'not implemented'.

It looks like the option to share a URL via messaging is there but the 
issues with copy and paste are well known and being worked on. I have 
just tried it and was able to load the browser, click on the url, the 
full url is displayed highlighted. I then hold down on the highlighted 
address and the option to copy was presented. However I can't see any 
way to paste and email it as you say.

Did you figure out adding contacts in the end?
