NEW VERSION Uploaded (Feb 4, 2011): FB2ContactPicSync_v1003.CAB
Fully skinnable.
Images now fill the whole space.
And the potential for the initial contact crash is fixed.
And the skinning can use pngs with transparency.
And it should be installable to the storage card now.

I developed an app to add the facebook pic to outlook contacts.

Sense 2.5 automatically adds images to your device to be used for your contacts in Sense.

But, the image is not added to your outlook contacts.

I went through the threads that it suggested before creating this thread.

If you like this app, please use the Thanks feature of the site.

And of course donations are always appreciated;

https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/websc...ton_id=7380024

What does the app do:

Interactive Mode:
For each contact
{
... if the contact is linked to facebook
... {
... ... if there is a facebook image on the phone for the contact
... ... {
... ... ... if the contact already has an image associated with it.
... ... ... {
... ... ... ... display both images, ask user if user wants to replace current with facebook image on device
... ... ... }
... ... ... else
... ... ... {
... ... ... ... display facebook image and ask to add facebook image on device to outlook contact
... ... ... }
... ... }
... }
}

Later, it will also have a batch mode.

After pressing Start, give it a minute. It is looping through all contacts finding the ones that are associated to a facebook account. It stores them in a dictionary for processing with the other buttons.

Again, please use the Thanks feature and donate as you feel appropriate.

Note: initial version had over 200 downloads.
v1001 had 190
v1002 had about 50

I removed the other attachments, leaving only the most recent version to avoid any confusion about what should be downloaded.

Reserving Post #3 for bugs or known issues
Make sure to sync with facebook before running the app. Otherwise you will need to click on an eror for each contact that yoou sync with facebook.

Tips / extras
App is fully skinnable.
If you want to make the button look like it is pressed when you press it, there are images in the program directory for that.

All artists, please post custom images and backgrounds.

Control locations are not editable. (maybe in a future version I get screen coordinates from an ini file.) But, for now, just make images that assume things will be where they are.

Icon Request
I am making pretty good progress on the app.

Currently it is displaying the image for both facebook and outlook.

Interactive only.
No batch mode yet.

But, I am not much of an artist.

If some of you could make and post some icons, that would be very helpful.

Thanks,

JVH3

[EDIT]
Came up with my own icon.
Feel free to still upload any that you think are better. I can use it the next version.

I'm no good with graphic design, just wanted to stop in and say that I can't wait for this to come out. It's very annoying that outlook contacts don't retain the facebook pictures after a flash.

will your app allow the user to pick which facebook image to display as the contact image if the user has several profile pictures available on facebook?

Nope. It just lets you set the outlook image to be the image that Sense Facebook integration downloaded.
