    Does it link or let you link the FB contact to a Google contact? The description and reviews seems unclear on that.

    When you follow the procedure to sync it downloads all your facebook friends to your phone with their pictures in high res. Then you can merge them to the contacts you already have on your phone

    Do you have to merge them individually or is there a way to do it in bulk?

    I'm reading this as name and pic only?

    What about phone number if it's avail and email? <--- this is more important than pics to me.

    For some reason I CANNOT get this app to download. Everything else downloads fine, but this hangs at "Starting Download". Tried clearing the market cache and data, also emailed to have the purchase canceled, then repurchased with a different card but no luck.

    Anyone have similar issues?

    I found a great time saver when linking these accounts. Once you have set up the sync options clear you contacts data in the app settings for contacts and let the phone re-sync. Since these pictures are the only ones in the android system at the moment they started to sync without manually going into each one.

    I did. For whatever reason it wouldn't download, but I just left it in my queue. It just completed 3 hours after I purchased.

    For some reason, the order was just cancelled on me without doing anything. Not really sure what's going on.

    Update - The dev just contacted me directly and sent me the apk, so all is well.

    Actually I had just figured it out... the instructions were kinda vague; didn't know the instructions were referring to the sync settings in contacts of the phone itself (NOT facebook). after that, it's pretty easy.

    Does anyone know how to contact the dev? I'd be interested in seeing a way to limit how often it hits FB so I can limit data/battery usage.

    dantheman7, here I am :D

    I'm working on letting the user decide the sync frequency. But there is another problem which has higher priority right now, for some users, it doesn't sync all friends. If anyone here has experienced this issue, I'd appreciate a log of the syncing progress (You can record logs with CatDroid on the Android Market.)
    As soon as that is fixed, I'll work on limiting battery and data consumption :)

    I purchased it. Great app. So you gotta bring all the Facebook contacts in huh? You can't limit it to just the people you have in your phone already (like all older phones allowed you to do)?

    How are you merging them in ICS? I don't see the option.

    I'm interested in this app, however I want to hear more feedback about it. I currently use friendcaster for this same thing. However friendcaster doesn't download hi-res images. The only thing is I don't want to manually merge 200+ contacts again. If there's an auto-merge feature then I would try it.

    Has anyone tried syncing, then going to gmail (on the computer) and there is feature to "look for duplicates" and try merging that way? I am about to try this, I will report back.

    seems no better than the other free apps.

    Never got a response on if it can sync email addresses and phone number when they are avail on bookface.

    I've done most of mine manually, but would be a good feature. Nobody has implemented this yet.

    Version 1.4.1 is out, should be live on the market soon! This version should fix the sync issues some people have been experiencing.

    syntrix: unfortunately, the FB API doesn't allow access to email/phone numbers. This is probably done to prevent spamming.

    drive88mph: it's available worldwide, but ICS only, sorry

    Scottd9000: "Only sync existing contacts" was added in 1.3. :)

    Someone will make it happen, and when it does, I'll gladly pay for a working app.

    There's no way to make it happen, except scraping FB's html page, which is
    1. very inefficient
    2. a direct violation of FB's terms of use.
