Anyone using this app? It finds the contacts properly but it always syncs an outdated profile picture of the contact although it shows the latest profile pic before syncing. And it happens for all contacts. Anyone experienced anything similar?

You got overwrite existing on for synch photos? No issues here with it updating the pics

I guess that's because it has so many fields to sync and check.. But it's very frustrating to see syncing contacts forever.

I have the same problem and only noticed it today. Maybe theres a problem with the app?
Its syncing people correctly but doing old profile photos from their facebook pages.
Bizarre

Edit: Ok, looked through facebook and it seems to be syncing the first ever profile pic in the contacts folder rather than the mose recent.
Maybe something in the way facebook has been coded?

I was trying to sync with FB and it works but then google sync just changes them back. Any way to fix that?

I have a little(and temporary) solution for this issue: Open SmartSync>Tap synchronization(NOT synchronize Facebook)> go in "size"> Tap "Thumbnail"> go back> Tap Quality> Tap Normal

Finally, Tap Synchronize Facebook and do the sinc.

Now the profile pictures shoud be right. ;)

Cheers! That worked. Hope they fix it though. Would like the fit to screen and high quality option working.

But now...

... are the contact photos thumbnail. The photos now are displayed in the right connor of the phone screen when you phone with someone.

Is there any way/wordaround back to the fullscreen photo while phone with someone?

I aren't know but I think if you switch of the photo sync off, the latest profil photo stay. But the thumbnail contact photo stay too.

Any ideas?
