BigNames makes calling people in your contact list easy.

Large, high-contrast text allows everyone (not just people with reduced vision) to easily browse names and select the correct number.

* uses your existing contact list
* supports both landscape and portrait orientation (landscape orientation uses an even larger font)
* uses the nicknames you've defined in your contact list (e.g. Dad, Sis)
* skips loading contacts that don't have phone numbers
* browse names or jump to a specific part of your contact list
* add a star to frequently dialled contacts so they appear at the top of your list
* English, French, German and Japanese language support

Almost perfect


I am legally blind and use this everytime I look up a contact.
There is one disappointing flaw. When veiwing a contacts' info, the name of the contact and phone number ARE IN SMALL PRINT. Those of us who bought this NEED PRINT TO BE L A R G E R. Simply make ALL THE TEXT in your app LARGE PRINT, and this will be perfect.

Current bug: Ever since the last update, the app just closes after tapping about half of my Contacts. I don't notice any pattern as to why tapping some numbers will dial, and some will just close the app.

The Bomb


Much needed ror the low vision community. Like to see a recent calls, missed feature. And if there's a way to filter based on groups. For example I'd have home in BigNames but not work (which might have 1,000 contacts). Or at least a way to switch betw groups. But I'd gladly pay more.

Great App! Thank you!


My wife has poor vision, but BigNames allows her to see her contacts! She is not a techie, but it is easy to use. She loves BigNames. We are awaiting any other apps from xinsight to make her iPhone more useable.
