Ok here was a thought. They already have the software for cover flow. Why not put cover flow on you contacts. I think it would be petty cool to scroll threw pics on you contacts and then just tap it to see all of the numbers and emails. So even when you want to compose a new email it would use cover flow and with text message too. Hey any one want to create a widget to do so? in case they open up third party? All i ask for is 2% and credit for the idea?

That is a pretty cool idea. Unfortunately, I only have pics for a small fraction of my contacts :(. If cover flow worked for contacts, I would definitely make an effort to get more pictures.

Let's hope someone from Apple reads these forums and will take your idea to Jobs :).

That is actually a really good idea to get around that..
Only thing is, I wonder if you can make the call like that.

Well, the iPhone automatically makes any mobile number "hyperlinked" to call that number, I doubt it would work for song titles.

Oh I did not know about that Hyperlinking thing. Well we will need to see I hope it works that way. I bet though a lot of people will copy my setup idea. I know the original idea itself wasn't mine.
