CNetX's Face Contacts is an interesting looking contact management utility for Windows Mobile Classic and Professional devices which combines the effectiveness of browsing contacts using an intuitive visual interface with the kind of features you would expect from a text-based Contacts application. Face Contact integrates directly into the Today screen of a Windows Mobile device, so contacts are always at hand.
When inactive, the Face Contact plug-in automatically shrinks its height (by hiding the caption), so it occupies as little screen estate as a couple of Today items.

Yet, by virtue of its 3D visual interface, it shows at a glance nearly as many contacts as can be seen full screen with the conventional “Contacts” application.

Key Features:

  • Intuitive 3D interface with kinetic scrolling.
  • Today screen integration, so contacts are always at hand.
  • No duplication of data: all contact information is taken from Outlook Mobile.
  • Integrated "Contact Manager" to add, remove, or edit contacts without having to switch between different applications.
  • Sort contacts at any time, by First Name, Last Name, Company or "User Defined Order".
  • Index-tracking shows current index/position in the list even when rapidly scrolling.
  • Jump instantly to any letter/position in the list by pressing the corresponding key on thumbboard or software input panel.
  • Single key calling using your phone "Start Call" key.
  • Shortcut menu provides quick access to common communication methods (mobile/home/work numbers, E-Mail, messaging, contact's web page).
  • Easy access to full contact details, contact notes, and other contact information.
  • Adjust, replace or remove contact's pictures, with photo rotation and cropping.
  • Integrated icon gallery provides dozens of ready-to-use icons you can associate to any contact.
  • Full control on display settings and 3D rendering options (photo shape, transparency, reflection effect).
  • Adjustable motion parameters (scroll speed, scroll distance, index-tracking).
  • Detailed context-sensitive help, with plenty of tips and tricks to get the best out of Face Contact.

Face Contact runs on Windows Mobile 5 and Windows Mobile 6 Classic and Professional Pocket PCs. Windows Mobile Standard smartphones are not supported at this point. Face Contact is available for US$ 14.95 (limited launch offer) but a free trial version is also offered.

Cheers ~ Arne
