ContactFlow App Moves From Cydia To App Store

Share:

ContactFlow made its iPhone/iPod Touch debut in Cydia. Since then, the app has now moved to the App Store and is available for free (see last paragraph) for all iPhone/iPod Touch owners!

ContactFlow by Fabien FOULON

Jailbroken iPhone/iPod Touch users, and especially first gen iPhone owners, would have remembered ContactFlow. Maybe you’re still using it? Well the app is now officially supported through the App Store.

With ContactFlow, users can navigate through their contact list using a view that mimics Apple’s CoverFlow feature. If you have ever used CoverFlow, you’ll know exactly what this looks like. If not, grab your iPhone/iPod Touch, go into music, and turn the device sideways!

When ContactFlow is launched, users have access to all of their iPhone/iPod Touch contacts. Contacts are viewed by their photo and tapping on a contact will flip the contact photo and display associated numbers and e-mails (if they are entered already). If a contact does not have a photo, a placeholder will display instead.

Just like in the normal iPhone/iPod Touch Address Book, by tapping on a number (or email, etc), ContactFlow will begin calling the contact (or launch Mail, Messages, etc).

ContactFlow also has various settings that users can customize. Some of the available options include:

  • Order contacts by last name or by first name
  • Automatic screen rotation
  • Choice of displaying contacts without photo
  • Choice of displaying e-mails

If you have used ContactFlow before or just want to check it out for the first time, the app is available on the App Store for free $1.99 (at the time of this story, the app was a free download which seems to have changed).

    Not showing as free. $1.99

  • Same thing for me… 1.99$

  • Haywood

    the app is $1.99

  • Groan

    Sigh,
    I appreciate developers time but I can't justify an app that puts a pretty face to something that's built into the iPhone already.

  • Speederd

    review is not too good coupled with $1.99 no thanks!

  • Sylanel

    Everyone is right about the price not being free but $1.99. I checked on both Canadian and US App Store and the price is indeed $1.99. Too bad for everyone that was curious and wanted to try it out.

  • rorypiper

    I guess this is cool, but not worth $1.99. I like the fact that developers are crossing that line between mainstream and underground. Seems ContactFlow has been pulled from Cydia, where it used to be free.

  • At the time of the review, it was free in the App Store! Guess it got pulled
    too soon! 😉

  • Ari

    I would pay 99 cents but not 1.99.

    Why don't you take down this article. It not correct and it's misleading. !!!

  • If you actually read the additions to the article at the end, it clearly states that it is $1.99 now, but was FREE at the time of the review.

  • Natas

    I did Gary. Just seems odd to have to read comments or additions to get the truth about an article.
    Don't you think?!
    Almost makes it seem like you don't know what your talking about, and it takes comments from others telling you your wrong for you to fix an article. Editting it only seems right, though It must have been embarrassing to admit your wrong.

  • What?!

    Do you understand that the application WAS (past tense) free at the
    time of writing this story?

    Since then, the developer changed the price and the article now
    reflects that. That is no reason to take down a story.

    If the price bothers you so much, you should be speaking to the
    developer, as they control the application.

  • If you did read the article in the first place, why did your original
    comment indicate that you didn't?

    We are always happy to hear from readers about mistakes in articles!
    The article has been edited to clarify the new price.

    Nobody is perfect. Your comment is riddled with grammatical and
    spelling errors but you don't see me nitpicking you about it.
