Description

Mel Sampat has created an application called OutSync. 

OutSync is a free Windows application that syncs photos of your Facebook friends with matching contacts in Microsoft Outlook. It allows you to select which contacts are updated. So you can update all contacts at once or just a few at a time.

The main benefit of OutSync is for Windows Mobile users. Updated contacts are automatically synced with Windows Mobile devices by Exchange server or ActiveSync. Thus new and fun photos appear during calls and other places where contacts are used.

      OutSync allows you to select which contacts are updated, which Fonebook doesn't. OutSync also has a nicer UI created with WPF, which supports Aero Glass.

      Cool.  Thant's useful photo syncing application.  It kind of makes me wish I used facebook, but I still prefer Live Spaces and Myspace.

      I am really glad I picked up a T-Mobile Dash after Jesse mentioned it a year back.  The Dash appears in almost every mobile application segment you folks do.  It feels like the official on10.net phone...so much so that I made a 10 background for mine.

      Thanks, Laura.
