We all know that CoverFlow is integrated in the iTunes,Music App,Finder but why Apple doesn't implement this feature into the iPhone Contact App? The current UI is stale and CoverFlow is something to be part of it from the day one.

What's You Thoughts?

Nice idea however I guess its purely eye candy. Scrolling up and down a sorted list of names is the quickest method of finding a contact rather than by image.

I'd rather have the list and the pictures of my contacts in icon size on the left (much like the Cydia tweak Cyntact http://cydia.saurik.com/info/cyntact/)

Cover Flow is on the way out I guess, at least in iTunes they removed it and who knows how long it'll still be there in Finder and iOS...

I like it, but it's not always the best way of presentation.
