This design pattern is part of the Mobile Design Patterns series.



In a keypad mobile we are calling a person by its name from the list, But due to the touch screen mobile it’s now time to change the contact list from simple to photo contact list.

By photo contact list user can call any person by the list of photo and name both. It is to use and scroll from the list of photo person available.





  • Better view
  • Fast calling by touch
  • Easy to touch and view
  • Send SMS from photo also.





Sometimes wrong touch may dial different person rather than required person.

Use when

To call a person we need to dial, the software which is used is called dialer.

Dialer is having number and photo of the required calling person. User need to touch the photo and again touch the call button. It does make call to the required person.

To make a photo contact list user has to first create a photo contact list.

User has to upload a photo or click a photo and enter the name of that person whom he need to call. There are so many kind of dialer style is given above which is used by different mobile company.
