>> There are quite a few iPhone applications for setting up a one-touch speed dial icon on your home screen, but FaceCall is one of our favorites. I'm Jessica Dolcourt with CNET Download.com. In this First Look video let me show you how it works. FaceCall takes a few steps to set up, but the application gives you step by step direction, so it's actually pretty easy to do. You tap the app to get started and you tap again to choose the contact from your phonebook. If you've already added a photo for them in the contact menu that's the picture that will be used. If you skip this step while adding a contact to your address book, you can grab a photo from the iPhones camera roll instead. When you're done just click create icon. After that FaceCall will render the image through its web server to create your icon. It's a more complicated process than it seems, but thanks to the application's clear directions you really won't notice. When you press OK FaceCall will shrink it to your image and you'll be prompted to press the plus key and then tap to add the photo to your home screen. After that you can drag the icon around their screen and let it land anywhere you want to. That way you'll use the icon as your speed dial instead of tapping into the phonebook to call a contact. It's pretty neat, huh! FaceCall costs 2.99 in the iTune store. You can also go to cnetdownload.com to go straight to it and to add your own rating. I'm Jessica Dolcourt and you're looking at FaceCall for iPhone. ^M00:01:25 [ Music ]
