We’ve just released our second application for the Apple iPhone. I proudly present Quick Connect, a visual speed dial application which uses contact photos as icons.
Speed dial is usually boring – you either click a number that you’ve assigned to a phone number or you click on a person’s name to call them. I’d rather scan my contact’s photos (complete with their name as a caption) and tap their icon (or if you’re really mad at them, you can mash their face with your finger).
Quick Connect not only allows you to call a contact, but also works with the Google Maps, Text, and Email applications. With the Google Maps application a pin will be placed on the address you have assigned to that person. With the Email application a new email will be addressed to your contact. And with the Text application your text conversation is quickly opened (or if there’s no ongoing conversation, a new one will be started).
Personally, I’m excited about a secondary function in Quick Connect – the ability to sync your photos with your friend’s Facebook photos!
