If you love the Cover Flow interface in iTunes and iPod, you may probably like to navigate your contact list in this style. An iPhone developer, Fafoulon, has created an iPhone application called ContactFlow that lets you flip through your contacts in Cover Flow style.

Install ContactFlow Via Cydia

ContactFlow is designed for jailbroken iPhone and now available for download via Cydia. Launch Cydia > Select “Sections” at haptic menu > Select “Utilities” category > and select “ContactFlow” or you can tap “Search” in Cydia and type “ContactFlow" > Select “Install” button at the right top and confirm it to install.

How To Use ContactFlow

Once you launch the application, you’ll see the profile images of your contacts. By flicking your finger, you can navigate through all contacts. Simply tap on a contact, ContactFlow will flip the picture and shows you the phone numbers of the contact. You can then tap on the number to make a call or click the SMS icon to send a text message. If you’d like to write an email, simply tap the email address. Also, ContactFlow works on both portrait and landscape orientation.

To customize ContactFlow, you can go to “Settings” and select ContactFlow. A number of options are available for customization:
  • Contact order
  • Automatic screen rotation
  • Displaying contacts without photo - By default, ContactFlow only shows up contacts with profile image. So, if you want to display all contacts including those without images, you need to enable this option.
  • Displaying e-mail address
