PhotoDial: A quick and easy way to make phone calls

Launch PhotoDial and tap on a person's photo to place a phone call to them—it's quick and easy. The program lets you choose whether you want to display your contact pictures in rows or in CoverFlow mode (like the one used by the iPhone's iPod application). It would be nice if you could place selected photos on the Home screen and tap on them there to place the calls. But Apple is very protective of the Home screen turf, so that is not very likely to happen.

PhotoDial has a simple interface and works well. I preferred the standard rows layout, but the CoverFlow option is nice to have and will probably be well-liked by many users.
