SUMMARY: A full featured replacement for the iPhone and iPod Touch contacts app

Check out, because your kids deserve the very best educational apps!

Friendbook is a multi-purpose contact managing app for the iPhone and iPod Touch. With this app you can manage your contacts very easily and even send contacts to others with the same app. The only real drawback to this app is the fact that it costs.

There are a few different areas to this app that you?ll need to get familiar with. To transition into this easily, we?ll start with the contacts page. This is essentially a more powerful version of the Contacts app that comes standard with your phone. Here you can browse through all of your contacts, edit them, send text messages to them, add them to groups, delete them, and add them to your face dialer page. You can also merge and delete contacts from the main part of this page.

The face dialer is the next part of this app that makes it stand out from the regular Contacts app. Basically, you can create a quick dial area using the pictures of your contacts. You can have up to nine contacts per page, but unfortunately the label under their picture isn?t their name, it?s just what line you would be calling. If you use any app that pulls pictures from Facebook, you may have a picture of a contact that won?t be a good enough indicator of who it actually is you?re calling.

You do get a lot of bang for your buck with this app considering it even has a feature to exchange contacts. It loads up very fast and is definitely more useful then the standard Contacts app. If it was possible to create groups for contacts from this app and rename the labels on the Face Dialer page, this app could possibly replace your phone app for everything except for missed calls and voicemails.
