Large Picture Contacts App?

    Hey all.

    I just bought my first Android phone and am still getting use to it.
    I have most of it customized the way I want other than my contacts and favorite contacts list.

    What I'm wanting to do is be able to see a larger picture of my contacts when scrolling
    through my contacts list.
    Right now they are these tiny little pictures that are kinda hard to see.
    I haven't found a way to enlarge them yet, nor have I been able to locate a good app that will do this.
    I'd also like to be able to see larger pics in my favorite contacts as well.
    Is there an app out there that lets you customize the picture size and other things in the contacts?

    I'd like to be able to keep my stock looking Black Background and layout if at all possible.
    I'm running Android 2.2 on a Casio Commando.
    Any help would be great.

    Desktop Visualizer will let you place large "buttons" to launch apps or links (direct dial contacts), that you can resize to any size you wish. You can use any photo in your gallery, so easy to have "large" pictures of contacts to launch their number.

    Thanks for explaining that.
    That will help in my search.
    Yeah...I've tried GO Contacts as well and they are too small.

    I tried Contapps.
    That's exactly the type of thing I've been looking for, thanks.
    I just need to find one now that lets you tweak things a bit.
    For example: Colors, Borders around Pictures, ect.
    Do you know of any like that?
    I know...I'm a very picky MF. :cool:
    I just wish Android would have made this an option out of the box
    because I really like my colors and dialer that I have already.

    This works excellent for throwing my contacts on a home screen, many thanks!

    I think I will also be able to use this for even more customization as well.
    I make my own icons.
    Can they be used in place of the existing ones?
    Well....I know they CAN,
    I'm just wondering what would be the best way to do it I guess.
    Will the Icon Files show up in a folder that I make on the SD Card,
    or do they have to be a JPG or PNG image?
