Default [APP] Contactz Call Widget

Good Day everyone,

We would like to introduce our first widget here to gather feedback from all the android user/developers in the forum.

Basically the concept is to provide a huge/big contact widget to make it earsier for user to make phone call under certain condition. (driving, or fast call using single hand). Beside that, this we also provide the features for user to choose their own skin/frames of preferences.

Below are the official description in the Market:

Create Simple Life - Add your favourite contact to your homescreen.
With this, a call or SMS to your favourite contact is just a touch away.

Boring with the dull Android call widget?
We provide you the option to choose your own preference of skin for your widget.

Feature Details:
1. Add 4 favourite contacts to homescreen
2. Option to choose either CALL, SMS or both action for ONE Touch event.
3. Option to choose your own preference of skin for the widget. (Random features also included)
4. Now you can make a phone call with 'speaker on' by just clicking on your contact.

As we still new here, we cannot include any screenshot and download link in this forum. Sorry.
You can download it by searching for "Contactz" in the market.

If you like it, please support us by giving your high rate in Google Market, recommending to your friends and forums.

On the other hand, we are looking forward to receiving your feedback and comment,we will keep working and make improvement from current version.

Please reply to this thread if there is any issue. We really appreciate it. Thanks in advance.

Default No go on HTC Desire with Oxygen RC7

Couldn't get it to work on my HTC Desire with Oxygen RC7 and LauncherPro Plus.

The widget seems to work OK but when I click "Done" there's no widget added to my home screen.
