Dial - The Best Way To Call provides a wonderfully visual way of organizing your contacts by allowing you to clearly see them with large thumbnail portrait photos organized in a simple tile arrangement on your iPhone and iPad.

I really like the idea behind this app because it literally allows you to put a name to a face; or rather, the other way round! Either way, this is a great way of viewing your contacts that, if nothing else, is very visually appealing.

What we’ve got here is an excellent utility in the Social Networking category of the App Store that makes it easier than ever for you to manage your contacts in a beautiful interface, with each entry displayed as a large portrait image of the person.
