Do you have a hard time connecting names to faces? Wouldn’t it be easier if you could just sift through your phone book using pictures rather than just names? With PhoneFace for BlackBerry, that’s exactly what you get.

The new service supplements your existing address book by replacing just the name of your contact with a photo. The kicker is that you don’t have to provide the picture yourself. Instead, the photo is pulled from that person’s Facebook or Twitter account. Just “flick effortlessly to the friend you want to call.”

When you come across the face that you’d like to dial, click your trackball (or the touchscreen in the case of the Storm) and a dialog will pop up asking you what you want to do. You can call one of the listed phone numbers or send a text message.

This can be pretty handy tool, especially if you’re a much more visually-oriented person. The PhoneFace application is currently available for BlackBerry and Android, the former of which comes with a free 7 day trial.
