QrHello Friends

Hello Friends is an insanely great idea. Personally, my problem is that my contact store (both on Google and Microsoft's live.com) is only populated to around 10% with thumbnails - and some of these are of dubious quality. In an ideal world, I'd start again, building up contacts with pro-quality (as per the example screenshots above) photos... I guess I'm waiting on a rainy day to get started!

Comments welcome on how well Hello Friends works for you?
