At last, a good use for CoverFlow

I’m not a big fan of CoverFlow, but this is just a brilliant use for it.

    I don’t think this is a good use for Coverflow. If you want to get to someone’s telephone number quickly, normal indexing is much faster. In what situation would you want to scroll through loads of photos, when you’re idly thinking of people you haven’t called for a long time?

    Human have a genetic predisposition to recognise faces, usually before names. That’s what makes this a good idea.

    Still doesn’t make sense. Address Book holds info on people you know, or people you might once have met. Most of the time you know the name and go there for the information. If you’re trying to think of a person you once met and can’t remember the name, yes, you might sit and scroll through hundreds of faces, but that wouldn’t particularly be a brilliant use for Coverflow or an improvement on Address Book, in my opinion.

    Actually, I’m spectacularly bad at remembering names – but very good with faces. :)
