Recently, I got an Android for my father instead of the iPhone he always had.
Well, his main complaint is that his contacts have no picture associated, that would be simple to sync with facebook. I had done that before in the old days for my phone using an app, but now, since facebook removed the capability of apps to access users pictures, all the apps that should do that, such as "Contact photo sync" became useless and are nothing but a swamp of ads.
Now, the only method I found is manually is going to someone's picture on Facebook, doing an export to external application and then choosing "Set as contact picture" in the export selection.
Would be simple if it wasn't for this simple feature missing in pure Android, the contact photo export does not appear in the "export options" as an application (I am using 6.0 on Nexus X5) . So now what I have to do is save the picture on the device, then setting it as a contact picture, having to navigate on multiple windows instead of directly exporting.
I am pretty sure I've seen the "Set as contact picture" before on another version of android, or some branded version.
Ultimately, my question is: how to export to a contact without having to save it on the phone? Are there any apps that would export from the "transference area" directly to the contact picture?
