    Saw this story on iClarified's site just a few moments ago:

    To perform the technique, the user's device must have Control Center enabled on the Lockscreen. First, launch the Timer app from Control Center then press and hold the power button until the power slider appears. As you tap cancel, double press the Home button to bring up the Multitasking switcher. Thankfully, the only app that can be switched to is Camera; however, tapping the last photo taken thumbnail at the bottom left will bring up the entire camera roll. Then tapping any photo will let you email, tweet, or share from the accounts that have been setup on the device.

    And if you assign a picture to a contact, you can see all the names in the phone's contact list. You can't see any of the personal info for the contacts, though (not that I've found).
