    Is there any application currently available that will take images, email addresses, and all other useful contact data from facebook and add it to your contacts in the iPhone contact list?
    Even if you had to manually match the contact to the friend it would help a ton.

    Does anyone out there have Facebook Sync V2.0 the version that allows you to sync your facebook contacts to your contacts database, as the later versions don't allow it. I've been able to find one torrent but there doesn't seem to be any seeds for it so if someone has a copy the can place somewere to download (and not rapid share cause that sucks) that would be great.

    Cheers!

    Not sure what's wrong with the newer versions, but I also have version 1.21 if you want it.

    I'd love the older version. Facebook crippled the new ones cause they comply with their EULA. Ill pm you my email address.

    Errrrr...... stupid question coming up.

    I download the version 2.0 zip file but what should I do with it. Do I just change the zip extension to APP and SSH it across to the app's folder on the iPhone, or is there something more involved to do?

    Thanks
    Barry

    It's much simpler than that -
    This isn't an iPhone app, it's a mac app. Unzip it and open the application on your mac. It'll sync all the contacts from your facebook to your address book on your mac (or at least the ones you want). Then, as long as your iphone settings are set to do so, it will sync over to your phone next time you plug it in. Easy peasy.

    There is a free equivalent out i noticed in the app store today called vringo. It works okay, but I can't complain for it being free.

    If someone is doing you a favor, you don't get to tell them how to do it.

    PS. RS works just fine.

    Facebook iPhone app

    The Facebook app for iPhone does now (not sure when it came in but it's there in 3.1.2).

    Go to Friends > Sync (top right).

    FriendSync

    FriendSync lets you choose different image sizes, sync names, and also lets you manually choose which contacts & friends to match and sync.

    Facebook Sync Not working...

    Does anyone else have find that the new Facebook app doesn't sync the contacts properly? It adds everyone's profile link into my contacts, but doesn't add thier profile picture... I've tried deleting the data and doing it again but its not working. Really annoying because I don't want to pay for friend sync when facebook should work fine (as it seems to with some people!).

    Any help would eb appreciated!
