I'm trying to create a shortcut to open up the Recent Call Log versus opening up the dialer. I'm using Apex Launcher and searched through activities, but can't seem to find the one that leads to the Recent Call Log. Any suggestions?

Not a direct answer, but You can search the Google Play Store for "call log widget" or "call history widget" for active it possible.. I think it may be help you..

I was looking more for a shortcut to the stock recent call log and use that to dial people by swiping to the right. The Widgets sound like they would merely show the call log but I would be unable to call from it.

Was looking for a direct shortcut to the tab of the dialer shown in the screenshot.

It worked on the S3, but I can't find the same activity on the S5.

I never actually tried that method. I did write a script for my S3 to make it work, but without root on my S5 I'm not able to do the same.
