Hi does any one have the nexus 5 phone dialler as an apk file. This allows for Google now search contacts and for places nearby.

This has been a question asked when the N5 came out. I don't think anyone has pulled the dialer apk from the N5. I was disappointed when I realized that feature wasn't present after the kit kat update. Perhaps it's an exclusive feature of the N5. I've been using "contakts" for my dialer and contact list and have been happy with it. I love the translucency provided by 4.4 and its GUI. Here's the play link : https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...whney.contakts

I'll throw you a bone, since searching is so hard.

By the way, this was literally the very first link that came up when I searched for it on Google. It was really buried at the top of the page.

Mr Orange 645,

Thank you but the mega link is not available and that app crashes. Also Googledialer is not on the play web site. Some have said to rename files but as I'm not rooted I cant.

Thanks for contakts app but really want the N5 dialler.

Just shows that the Moto X is not vanilla android as stated

Found this to enable root is required and permission changes http://m.pocketnow.com/2013/12/26/install-google-dialer

Since I've no root can only hope that 4.4.3 update will sort ( that's if we get it).

Nitro used the nexus 5 dialer on his earlier releases of Eclipse. I believe it requires more work than just a simple apk.

I used the file manager inside of safestrap to install the apk in /system/priv-app, then changed permissions with chmod 755. There is an app in the play store called QuickShortcutMaker that allows you to create a widget of any activity. This means that you don't have to use Nova launcher to launch the Google dialer.
