iPhone Application: SmartSync – $0.99 US – Score: 3 IV’s
What is SmartSync?
SmartSync is an iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch application that syncs with Facebook to keep your contacts up-to-date with their latest pictures and information such as birthday, status, address, job title and place of employment. Even your caller ID will update with your friend’s latest Facebook picture! The best part is this application merges birthdays with your iDevice’s calendar and I never miss anyone’s birthday. If you like Facebook, you’ll love SmartSync!
What is this application lacking?
This application lags when it comes to updating pictures. It would be much better if it didn’t have to constantly re-sync.
What are some key features?
- When your Facebook friends call your phone, their latest Facebook profile will be displayed as the Caller ID
