Those of you who’ve been in the jailbreak arena for a while might remember an application by Saurik called Cyntact, which displayed your contacts picture right next to their name in your contacts list. I think Cyntact hasn’t been updated for iOS 4 but it doesn’t matter because iPicMyContacts is taking over. Commenters confirm Cyntact was updated for iOS 4.

iPicMyContacts will display your contact picture next to his name inside the contacts and favorites screens…

It will also allow you to quickly search the web for the contact image and add his/her picture from there. To do that, just click the small contact icon next to the contact name.

Priced at $1.29, iPicMyContacts isn’t a bad app and certainly makes it easier to quickly find a contact in your iPhone. Give it a shot and tell us what you think.

    Cyntact is updated to iOS4… and it shows contact pictures next to contacts and favorite screens… and it costs 1.00$… so how again does your post make sense?

    Cyntact works just fine on iOS4. I’ve been running it since the day Jailbreakme came out. If it wan’t updated, it’s because it didn’t need to be.

    i was thinking the same, I feel as if in reaping monetary benefit!

    This is like one of those features that are so obvious you wonder why Apple did not do this by default by now.

    Why would you pay for for the same thing that Cyntact does?

  • Burge

    After installing iPicMyContacts I cannot see my friends in Facebook app on my 3GS. I can see only list of friends, but nothing happens after tapping on any of them. Does anybody have the same problem?
