Finally someone has made a contacts list for people who despise reading! SmileDial Pro by Dejal Systems has streamlined my contacts list into pictures!
SmileDial Pro allows you to use pictures, instead of text for your contacts. Setup is painless as it takes your existing contacts and links it with a picture of your choice (although not all at once). Then flip through the full screen pictures of your friends, co-workers and that elderly postal worker you befriended in the autumn of ‘94. Once you find who you’re looking for you’re given two choices: Tap the top half of the photo to text or the bottom half to call. So simple, an ape or a physical education teacher can use it!
It’s easy to use and I really love sorting through the contacts by picture. Seems like something Apple should have developed. However, it does have a few limitations. First, you can only have one number per contact to call. So if you need to the ability to call the same person at different numbers, this may not be up your alley. Also, the flipping tended to be slow at times, but not enough to ruin it.
I’d use this instead of my favorites list, but it won’t replace my contacts list…yet. If you hate reading or need a simple way to contact friends when you’re at a watering hole, this $3.99 app has serious potential and is worth a look.
