PhoneFace for Android and BlackBerry

From SmartphoneToday:

Electric Pocket has released a new version of PhoneFace for BlackBerry. Phoneface, which enables users to get their friends' profile pictures from Twitter and Facebook, is a speed dial application that launches phone calls, text messages and e-mails when you click the photo of a commonly dialed contact.

The company asserts integration with Facebook and Twitter gives users a ready source of excellent photographs for their contacts. Also, uniquely, the speed-dial picture becomes a photograph chosen by the contact themselves.

In addition to BlackBerry, there's a version of Phoneface for Android smartphones like the T-Mobile G1.

SplashID for iPhone review

From iPhoneApplicationList:

It's one of the biggest headaches of the modern world, and yet there seem to be relatively few tools that really help. I'm talking about data security, specifically your private data: the PINs, the account numbers, the serial numbers, the passwords, of which most of us have several hundred. Some people get by by writing these things on 'bits of paper'. Others put it all in plain text in their Contacts. But you, the informed power user, can manage your data properly AND keep it safe from prying eyes. At least, you can, now that you've got SplashID.

SplashNotes for iPhone/iPod touch Review

From Smartphone Fanatics:

SplashData SplashNotes is an outlining tool that helps you capture your ideas and transform them into bite size actionable tasks that, when put all together, produces a completed project or product. The SplashNotes manual describes this process as having four discrete phases: brainstorming, organizing, analyzing, and finishing. If you don't know what that means, don't worry. The SplashNotes user guide gives you good examples for all of the phases of idea and task organization.

txtForward review

From TreoCentral:

Right off the bat, I don't do a LOT of texting. But, there are times when I receive texts and I'm busy or just don't wish to read text messages at the moment. Then there's times when I'm using another phone and friends text my Centro while I'm carrying my Treo 750. With txtForward, both of these situations are easily handled! txtForward allows forwarding of those missed texts to email!

Review of Ringo Pro for Android

From AndroidandMe:

The Android based T-Mobile G1 with Google allows you to set a unique ring tone for each person in your contact list. It doesn’t, however, allow you to set a unique SMS, or text message, tone for each person. This could be handy if you are busy, and need to know whether the SMS you just received is an answer to a critical question, or simply another bit of SMS spam.

If you have ever been expecting an important call or message and fumbled through your purse or pockets to find your G1, only to discover a telemarketer, the Ringo Pro could be for you.
