Easily Store and Launch Secret Phone Codes

Fortunately, XDA forum member appelflap has written an Android application that can store these for you and launch the hidden menus from the application.
Phone Codes comes preloaded with some codes that are known to run on most Android devices, however some codes may not work on your device. If this is the case, you have the option to edit the buttons and amend the codes.
You can download the application for free from the application thread, or donate by buying the Phone Code from the Android Market.
