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!
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).
