If you have been a heavy contact book user you know the dread of mass entering people. You need to copy paste their numbers, email addresses, and worst of all, pictures! Personally I love to have pics of everyone, it makes my contacts look nice and shiny, just the way I like it.
If you're a Facebook user you may have accumulated a lot of contacts who may even have in your Outlook contact list, but don't have pics for. OutSync is a free application that enables you to mass add all your Facebook friends, and their pics, to your Outlook contact list, with virtually a click of the button.
Sadly, phone numbers and emails are out of the questions, since this activity may leave you banned, therefore the app doesn't allow it. The reason is pretty straightforward, this way some bad intentioned people could just grab all emails from Facebook, flooding everyone with spam.
You can download OutSync from the developer website at Codeplex. The program's latest updated dates back more than a year ago, and some users have reported that it won't work under Windows 7.Advertisement
