Dial In Style With myDialer Lite for Android
We are always looking for newer cooler, faster, and better performing apps for our devices. Some of the stock apps (well, really most of them) lack the ability to undergo customization or are just flat out slow. One such category that happens to be suffering from this on Android devices is the dialer department. There are some replacements out there, but they several are simply skinned versions of stock dialers. Well, now thanks to XDA member mozarcik__, there is a new dialer in town, which is ready to take your phone experience to a whole new level. This new dialer is incredibly quick and responsive, features call history divided by contacts, it has support for several languages, and best of all, it is fully skinnable. It currently has 3 different skins available to choose from but according to the dev, there should be a few more down the road.
The dev is still working hard on myDialer and feedback is very important. So, please if you decide to go with this, please let the dev know if you run into any issues.

In fact, I'd say that without Android I wouldn't have chosen...
