    Does anyone know what the one touch dial application where the picture of the contact it is assigned to is the icon? I saw it somewhere either on appshopper or on this forum and I tried searching but found nothing. Thanks.

    I do not believe this is possible, because the icon is packed into the .app, and to change it dynamically would result in the codesign being destroyed.

    It is an application for Jailbroken phones, I had it installed back in 1.X firmware days, not sure if it is still available and I can't recall what it was called.

    Thanks

    Cool, I thought I saw a screenshot somewhere in the last month but I guess it could have been a while ago when I had a jailbroke touch before I got my phone.

    However there are plenty of one touch dial apps that are available on the iPhone that install as separate applications with different numbered icons/names, which personally I think is lame but I guess it tickles some people's fancy.

    Yeah

    Yeah, I found those and that is what sparked the memory of the app with the pictures for icons. I don't really want to bother with those others, the picture icons just have that extra coolness factor. I'll just use the built in favorites list in the phone app.

    Every application has it's own document directory so you can store dynamic images, I don't see why this wouldn't be possible unless I'm not understanding what the OP wants.

    To set the application icon dynamically to a photo from the library or just to use a contact's existing picture and then set the launching of the application to dial that contact's number ala speed dial.

    The problem comes in changing the icon image. You have to edit the info.plist to point to a different image file to do this, and as far as I (and other devs have found) you can't make changes to the icon key from within the excutable. It would corrupt the codesign.


    And the Jailbreak app was called Springdial, I'm not sure if it was ported to 2.x, and if it did if the name is the same still.

    The most they can do is change the badge, but the icon picture is off limit.
