[prMac.com] Portland, Oregon - Dejal Systems, LLC today announced SmileDial Lite and SmileDial Pro version 1.1 for the iPhone. Call someone by touching their smile, or send them a text message by touching their eyes! Not as creepy as that sounds, really! SmileDial displays a photo of someone's face: tap the top half of the photo to send them a text message, or the bottom half to call them.
SmileDial Lite helps you call and text your favorite person. SmileDial Pro extends this to multiple people: swipe through multiple faces to choose the one you want. SmileDial Pro also enables you to call them via other phone numbers, send an email, visit their website, map their address, and more, in a fun way: shake the iPhone to show more contact information.
A tap of the info button flips the photo over to reveal fields to edit the name and numbers for text messaging and phone calls, plus buttons to show the contact info and change the photo. You can simply enter a name and numbers and choose a photo. Or you can pick an existing contact.
A contact's photo is used for SmileDial, if available. It is previewed in the background of the edit mode. You can also choose another photo: an existing one from the Camera Roll or Photo Library, or take a new photo with the iPhone camera. The photo can be moved and scaled as desired, e.g. to show just the person's face. The new photo is stored in the Camera Roll, so you can import it into iPhoto or use it elsewhere if desired.
SmileDial Pro includes a People button while editing. Tap it to display a list of people in the order they appear on SmileDial's main side. You can change the order, delete them, or add any number of new ones.
Version 1.1 includes a new option to display the person's name below their photo, an option to convert textual numbers to the corresponding digits, performance improvements, and other changes.
* iPhone version 2.2 or later
Pricing and Availability:
* SmileDial Lite is available completely free of charge.
