Thumbs up [APP][UPDATE][02-09-2014][Honeycomb+] Slide Dial: dial from anywhere!

Hello,
I haven't much experience in android developement and I started to develop this app for learning puroses mainly.
I didn't do any work on it the last months, but I'm using it a lot and I find it pretty useful. So I desided to share it with you. I hope you find it useful too.
The app is free without limitations. You can show your appreciation by give a donation though via the in app, donate button.

SlideDial is a floating dialer. This means that you can launch it from anywhere.
You just need to slide to the right from the device's lower left side area.

Main Futures:

- Direct access to Starred contacts via the list on the right
- Direct input phone numbers via the dialpad, or
paste a number previously copied to Clipboard from any app by tapping on display block.
- Access to phone's contacts and history.
- Search for contacts by number or letter

Support: Android 3.0 and above
[B]

Great concept. I have a few requests/suggestions, I would like to be able to adjust the trigger width and sensitivity, I have fat fingers and it takes me 3-4 swipes to trigger the app. Also, I would like to see the letters and digits on the dial pad, in my case it would help to eliminate the guess work. Transparency levels and the ability to theme would make this app a hot item. Good work, this one is a keeper.

Thanks for putting this up, it's something that I think would be very useful. I'll try it out and let you know what I think about it. I think I'm going to like it.

I think I can do something about the width, but maybe will interfere with other apps functions as homescreen sliding or onscreen keyboard.
About letters/digits, I'm thinking to put some indicators on buttons, or to put all letters in one list. The lists are already scrollable, so it' s a quite easy change. I don't know if is better this way though.
Themes is a nice addition, but I don't know how to do it. I haven't much experience in programming and there are a lot of things I don't know.

In case you don't do it right: tap and hold on trigger position(default is bottom-left), when you fill the vibration move your finger.
Otherwise maybe there is some extra security function on these roms/devices which prevents the service from start. A logcat will be useful.
