PocketX Software releases Photo Contacts 2.0 for the Windows Mobile Smartphone

This major update includes Caller ID Override to help with non functioning Caller ID on some Smartphone devices and includes many new features

We're pleased to announce the release of Photo Contacts 2.0

Photo Contacts 2.0 is faster, better and more fully featured than its predecessor and the competition.

Here is a full list of new features in version 2.0:

  • Featuring 2 new Photo Caller ID modes (SIMPLE mode displays a smaller photo, THEMED mode displays a medium sized photo)

  • Awesome new photo adjust engine lets you crop and adjust contact photographs on the Smartphone

    preferred option for assigning many contact photos at once.

  • Contact photos can now be sent via MMS, Email and Infrared (via PhotoBeam)

  • Caller ID Name Override feature fixes the Caller ID bug in US based Smartphones (i600, MPx200)  Read more about this...

  • Ability to sort contacts by Company Name

  • Photo ZOOM feature (just press * to display a large photograph of the selected contact)

  • Incoming Call forwarding info is shown in Themed Photo Caller ID (support varies by network)

  • Enhanced call dialog remembers the last selected number for each contact for Talk-Talk functionality

  • Automatic auto-run at startup loads Photo Contacts in the background

  • Enhanced support for memory cards

"Photo Contacts was a great app in 1.0 and now it looks like a must-have for American users. To make the deal even better, 2.0 is a free upgrade for anyone who purchased the previous version!" - Read More (source: SmartphoneThoughts.com)

"One of the key things that kept a PocketPC in my pocket every day after I bought my MPx200 was that I couldn't keep all 693 of my contacts on my phone and still see caller ID.  I guess I don't really need caller ID but I like caller ID, I like it a lot.  There is a underlying problem with the software in the MPx200 and the i600 that if you have more than around 200 numbers in your phone you will never see the name pop up on the caller ID screen.  This drove me crazy......I think I would call Photo Contacts 2.0 a must have app, this is one that I won't remove right after the review...." -  Read More (source: mpx200.org)
