Other than that, cool app and very handy!

It should automatically fold the notification drawer. It did in my trials. I don't know why is it not working for you.

Another idea: Than 4-5 would be too much but the alternative for those who really do want more would be ... slide 'em. I think Nokia's widget works that way.

I could add more contacts, I just thought four were enough. In my screen more than four wouldn't fit, though.
I cannot make them slide, because notifcations cannot be laterally scrolled. They can be expanded in JB, but I don't have a JB phone to try it, and the emulator doesn't really work properly.
Thanks for the suggestions.

Nice app! I have two feature requests:

1. Can you remove the icon in status bar? I like to see the carrier name and on my AT&T Samsung GS3 your app icon replaces that.

2. Could you add a feature to configure a default action for a contact such as "call mobile" or "call home" or "sms", etc? I'd like to just hit the icon and have it start dialing. If you can do this you want want to add some overlay text or an icon to indicate the action (a phone or text icon).

I can do both things and I think these are very good ideas. I'll implement them if I find some time. I'm a bit busy right now, but for sure I'll add these options.
Thank you very much!

Thank you very much!

Great app with a lot of potential.
Some suggestions (also mentioned by some other users)
1.Give option to show or not the icon in taskbar
2.Allow to choose default actions when icon is pressed for direct calling
3.Give option to show selected contacts OR latest contacts from call log (it will give the program a call notification function also) !
4.Fix the total look especially in the settings and a quick way to access them (maybe put small settings icon-half size,before the 5 contact pictures.
5.Translate it If you want Greek i can do it for you

Thanks and keep up the good work

Tried both the apk on here and also from the Play Store, both had the same problem. Could just be the ROM I'm using, still a cool app, I'll keep up with the versions to come!

On my Galaxy Note 1, with ICS, I'm sorry to say it won't open the contact. It hangs and hangs and eventually I have to fc contacts.

It happens with Galaxy note 1, I tried with one and the same thing happened. It is because some sort of bug in samsung Contacts app, that's why it is contacts that FC and not my app. I don't know how to fix or go around that bug. I am sorry.

Does the version posted here work for you? If it does, I will enable it in the Play Store.

I will implement all of this, eventually. I am now adding the fifth and sixth contacts and the option for direct calling/sms .
The option to get contacts from call log is very interesting, I'll try to do that. About the look, I know it is really ugly. I'll try my best but don't expect wonders, I'm not very good at UI.
Translations will come later, because I am still making changes to the program and nobody would like to be translating new text everyday, and users wouldn't want to wait for the translations. Thanks for offering to translate to greek.
I believe in "release early, release often", that's why I offer preliminary versions of my software, and lots of updates. This forum suggestions really help me a lot. Thanks!
