OutSync-Sync Facebook Photos with Outlook on Windows Mobile

"OutSync is a free Windows application that syncs photos of your Facebook friends with matching contacts in Microsoft Outlook. It allows you to select which contacts are updated. So you can update all contacts at once or just a few at a time. OutSync is for Windows Mobile users. OutSync is compatible with Windows XP, Vista and Server 2003. It requires Outlook 2003 or 2007. Updated contacts are automatically synced with Windows Mobile devices by Exchange server or ActiveSync. Thus new and fun photos appear during calls and other places where contacts are used."
