It really sucks that Facebook forcibly adds new contacts to your contacts if you want to sync Facebook Profile Pictures to your phone’s contact list. Also, Contact pictures Sync is only limited to Facebook on iOS. To break these barriers two new tweaks have been introduced in cydia that allow us to sync contact pictures with Whatsapp Profile Pictures and other sources. One of them is called ‘Contacts photo Sync’ costing $1 and ‘AvtarSync’ costing $2. Contacts Photo Sync tweak is limited only to Whatsapp syncing whereas AvtarSync has more option like Facebook, Twitter, Gravatar etc. Both add a new icon to the homescreen for configuration.
Since most people have already got a profile photo in their WhatsApp account these tweaks simply import them and assigns the image to the relevant entries to your contacts. Once this is done the images start appearing in the contacts app without any hassle. Another important thing to note is that all the phone numbers should have start with a ‘+’ sign followed by the country code and then the phone number. They should not include the number ‘0’ at the beginning either.
If you are a WhatsApp user and would like your contact list to have profile pictures then head to Cydia and download Contact Photo Sync. It is available for $1. If yoy want to use other sources as well for syncing your contacts go for AvtarSync available for $2.
