ContactFlow is not a new application…we had ContactFlow back in the day (firmware 1.1.4 and below). I’m not sure if this is the same app by the same developer with a slightly new interface or if it is a completely different application! Either way, we have had a similar application in the past (with the exact same title!).
ContactFlow is basically another way to view your contacts. When you open ContactFlow you will get a Cover Flow style list of all your contacts that have images. Note: It will only display contacts that have images assigned to them (see instruction below on how to add images to contacts). You can then scroll through your contacts by swiping your finger on your iPhone or iPod Touch’s screen. You can also jump to a certain letter by selecting the little magnifying glass icon…which will then bring up the alphabet and you can select a letter. The two arrows at the top of the screen allow you to quickly go to either your first or your last contact.
To view a contact’s information, you can either tap on the contact or you can select the “i” icon at the bottom of the screen. When you select a contact, the image will flip over and display the phone numbers available for that contact. You can then either call one of the phone numbers or send it a text message. Both features worked flawlessly when I tested them.
I also noticed that when you end a call, it will bring you back into the ContactFlow application. Overall, a simple application but, it is nicely designed. I also found it to be a sturdy app…I had no issues with crashing, all the features worked quickly and correctly and I did not experience any glitching while scrolling through contacts (though, I do not have a ton of them). You will have to let me know in the comment how it works for you.
How to add Photos to your Contacts:
1. Go into your stock Phone application
2. Go into Contacts
3. Select a Contact
4. Select Edit
5. Tap on Add Photo in the upper left corner
6. You can then choose to take a photo or choose an existing photo
*If you choose to take a photo…it will open your Camera…you can take the picture…then move and scale it and then set it as your Photo.
*If you choose to choose an existing photo…it will bring you to your Photo Albums where you can choose a photo and then select Set Photo.
7. Now you will see the added photo and it will show up in ContactFlow.
