Vringo syncs up Facebook profile pics with caller ID

Comments

VringoYou know how you can get a picture associated with contacts in your BlackBerry’s address book so it pops up when they call? It’s a cool feature, but a bit of a pain to get set up; either you’re sideloading a bunch of personal pics and laboriously chewing through your address book one by one, or you’re relying on mediocre snaps taken with your Pearl or Curve. Well, Vringo is working on this great app for Facebook and your BlackBerry which brings up profile pictures in the exact same way. It doesn’t work with the address book, but rather pops up another window when you get a call with the caller’s picture. Too bad, since it’s a bit cumbersome having more windows open and accessing the pictures at other times would be nice, but this is a beta, so there’s hope still. Head on over here to get started, and hey, while you’re on Facebook, you should check out the BBCool page.

    Neat concept. I use Fonebook to sync my Facebook friends display pictures with my Outlook Address Book. This synchronizes wirelessly with my BlackBerry :)
