PhoneFace is a light and breezy speed-dialer aimed at helping anyone reach out to their friends and family more quickly with their iPhone
Wye Valley UK (PRWEB) August 4, 2009
Electric Pocket is now introducing its PhoneFace photo speed-dial application for the iPhone - the first of its kind to connect with Twitter to retrieve profile photos of frequently-called contacts. PhoneFace has been a very popular application among users of BlackBerry and Android smartphones.
PhoneFace will launch phone calls, text messages and emails with a simple click on a contact's photo or avatar. The app also comes with a fun set of custom-designed avatars, including a number of friendly robots and other quirky characters, to represent friends with no photos available.
PhoneFace makes it simpler and quicker to find and launch a call, text or email with friends, family and co-workers. Rather than forcing users to scroll through hundreds of contacts in the Address Book of their iPhone, PhoneFace adds a twist to "speed dialing" by enabling them to flick through photos for their most commonly called contacts to quickly select the person they wish to call.
PhoneFace users can select any photo for their contacts, take a photo with the iPhone's camera or it can automatically locate and update the pictures of PhoneFace contacts with their most recent Twitter profile picture. This integration gives users a ready source of excellent photographs for their contacts - and uniquely, the speed-dial picture becomes a photograph chosen by the contact themselves.
"PhoneFace is a light and breezy speed-dialer aimed at helping anyone reach out to their friends and family more quickly with their iPhone," said Iain Barclay, Electric Pocket's co-founder and Chief Product Officer. "It's so much easier to look for a familiar face than sort through hundreds of names in a directory."
PhoneFace is available now from the iTunes App Store for with an introductory price of US$.99.
