Free Download Facetones Android App For Your Phone
Staying in touch once revolved around the phone call. Most of the users now use social networks more then phone calls, and they increasingly see their devices as portals to social media sites.
As vringo CEO Jon Medved puts it:"Phone Class almost feel out of date because there is no social context."
Vringo got its start selling video ringtones, now its using a similar technology to give phones calls a social twist. Its a new Android app, Facetones, plays slidesshow of friends most recent Facebook photos every time they call you or you call them. All you need is internet connection in your phone, Facebook account, login to your facebook and login to your facebook. The most interesting part is you do not need to add manually names to your app. The app will automatically matches names of your Facebook friends with your phone contacts name, so all you need is to matching up the names that are inputted differently on your phone then they are on Facebook. Just make them just like their facebook names.
