PicDial unites the fun of mobile communications and social networks in a practically usable way that can bring a new meaning to mobile communications and for sure you are going to love making call and text over and over each day. Once you are through the initial setup of the app you will see the full screen image of caller when they call you or you call them along with the latest status update on their social profile. These little additions to the call screen give a new start to your conversation and the talk actually begins even before the other party or you lift the call. A status update that includes messages like “ having the most wonderful evening” or “ Bad Monday mornings” or just a new vacation picture can strike a conversation that is good enough to refresh you both. Additionally if you are far away from your friends and hardly meet them, watching their picture can brush up your memories of the good times with them, thus also adding some personal touch to your conversation.
Texts have an additional capability to popup over the screen along with the FaceBook picture, status and text message received. You can also quickly reply to the sender from the same popup, thus saving time and avoiding the possibility of delayed reply or no reply from your end while you are busy. You can alternatively open the original text with default message app or just hide the popup. Popups can also be disabled if they tend to get too annoying. If you are using the PicDial app for replying to messages you will be able to use the group messaging functionality as well as an integrated spell checker that can avoid a lot of spelling mistakes that usually occur in quick and short replies. The PicDial texting interface does not miss the voice to text and attachment functionality which can be enjoyed right from the reply screen in the app.
