A Decent Dialer – Fast Dialer for Android
If you are an Android device owner that made the switch from WinMo, then you might be looking for a decent dialer.
XDA forum member eirh was so badly missing a dialer that enables fast search through contacts by number or name, that he decided to write his own dialer app.
