Spruce Up Your Phone’s Phone with TouchPal Dialer 3 for Android!
As mentioned before, the seemingly endless customization possible with Android is one of its greatest attributes. If you don’t like your home screen, swap it out. The same can be said for nearly every other aspect of your Android-powered phone, including the phone dialer itself. XDA forum member CooTek has created a wonderful replacement dialer that adds features, polish, and improved aesthetics for the off chance that you may actually use your phone… as a phone.
In the words of the developer:
TouchPal Dialer is an amazing dialer and contact application for Android phone. It’s fast, cool, and powerful, and will make your dialing much easier than ever!
– Fast search on numeric keypad
– Search by anything: first/last names, initials, numbers
– Contact grouping and filtering
– Favorites (with big icons)
– Show caller/callee location
