My company has just launched an iPhone app which finds pictures for your address-book contacts. This brings the benefits of my popular OS X Address Book plugin to those who don’t have a Mac. For the impatient, it’s available now in the iTunes store.
The app does a lot more than the Gravatar plugin:
- It works in batch mode to find pictures for all your contacts at once.
- It finds appropriate pictures for non-person contacts based on their homepage URL.
- It can optionally generate unique images for any contacts which do not have an appropriate Gravatar.
- You can pick whether you want the image to be full-screen or a thumbnail when it is used in the caller display on your iPhone.
