    The new app from Tapulous is in the App Store.

    This free app lets you share contacts with other iPhones/iPod Touches through a feature called "hand shack"

    I tell ya Tapulous is the #1 company for the iPhone.

    App Store Link

    WARNING!

    The app has been removed and you need to REMOVE it from your iPhone/iPod Touch there are serious issues with this.

    that's pretty sweet, very interested to see how well this works (no one I know has an iphone so I can't even try it out!)

    just got it from the app store. It looks good and works faster than the contact app put out by apple lol. I would really like to see the App oprn up to the friendbook section instead of the full contact list. Like that you don;t have to navigate to the friend book. This would allow you to basically make a call with 2 taps instead of 3.

    Tapulous are looking good. All for free as well. However, this is useless to me as I don't know anyone with an iPhone. :rolleyes:

    I don't know the face speed dial section is pretty cool, I have it set up as the page that opens up when I open friend book.

    Yup its off the App Store, I guess there was something wrong with the version posted.

    Check with the Tapulous Blog throughout the day, they do a good job of keeping us updated.

    I think there was a security issue with the handshake feature.

    I've fired an e-mail off to Tapulous to ask why they pulled it, I'll post the response if/when I receive it.

    Just leave the face dialer open when you quit. On reopen it should go straight there :D.

    The Favorites tab in the default phone book should really have a face dialer in there, perhaps in landscape mode.

    Sbj: Thank you.

    Hi,

    Friend Book was indeed cleared for sale and on the App Store for a few
    hours, but we decided to take it down after we received several
    reports of mishaps with the handshake feature.

    Hopefully it'll be out in a few weeks.

    Bart
