A light-weight photo dialer app
By on October 5th, 2009

Avatar is a photo dialer for your Windows Mobile contacts with ultra-smooth scrolling and low memory footprint.


Avatar allows you to flick to scroll among your contacts, and tap the contact photo to bring the contact details. However, if you have iContact (a Contacts replacement) installed, Avatar will use it. Tap-and-hold on an avatar to call using that contact’s "smart property" – the one that shows up in the standard contact manager. "<m>" = mobile, "<w>" = work, "<h>" = home, etc. The only downside is that the contacts without pictures will not show up.

Avatar has a very low memory footprint – only around 100KB on VGA, and works on all screens: VGA, QVGA, WVGA, WQVGA, Square. It also has AppToDate support. and integrates with iContact and iDialer.
