NubDial – Smart Dialer for Android

NubDial – Smart Dialer for Android

NubDial is a smart dialer for Android, adding extra functionality not available on the stock dialer.   Developed by XDA member Wysie, NubDial is based off the open-sourced SpellDial (by Lawrence Greenfield).

NubDial enables you to search by both contact name and telephone number and supports accented characters.

Main features:

  • Quick contacts picture
  • Add to contacts from dialer
  • Set as default
  • Auto hide dialpad
  • Fling up/down & fast scrolling on contacts list
  • Search matches any number sequence

Other features include being able to initiate an SMS from the app and linking to the call log and contacts menu.  In addition it supports hyphens in US number format.

Currently coded for Android 2.0/2.1 (Eclair), Nubdial works on (but is not limited to) the Nexus One and Motorola Droid.

NubDial does not support GSM short codes.

Future developments include updating for Android 1.5 (Cupcake) and 1.6 (Donut).

Check out the application thread for more information including a link to the source code.

NubDial is available to download for free in the Market (Eclair market only).

I've been around XDA since 2007 when I bought the HTC Touch, well things have moved on a lot since then, and I've tried my hand at developing for WM and Android (still learning), but wanted to contribute more by becoming a News Writer for XDA.I write mainly Android articles, and some Windows Mobile. We're always sifting through the masses of threads for front page news, but do let me or the other guys know if you think anything is newsworthy including any breaking news!
