[APP][v.2.1.1] A decent dialer
Since switching to Android from WinMo I was so badly missing a decent dialer, that I made my own. It enables dialing and fast search through contacts by number or name, and enables search in two different alphabets:
Latin (supports all european latin-based languages) and
One of the following: Greek, Hebrew, Arabic or Cyrillic (Russian, Bulgarian, Serbian and Macedonian) currently implemented.
For Android 1.5 and above
I’d appreciate to hear your feedback.
