Lightbulb [APP][Android 2.1+][v.3.5.1] A decent dialer

Hello,

Since switching to Android from WinMo I was so badly missing a decent dialer, that I made my own. It enables dialing and fast search through contacts by number or name, and enables search in two different alphabets:
  1. Latin (supports all european latin-based languages) and
  2. One of the following: Greek, Hebrew, Arabic or Cyrillic (Russian, Ukrainian, Bulgarian, Belarusian, Serbian and Macedonian) currently implemented.

For Android 1.5 and above

I'd appreciate to hear your feedback.

Latest version: 3.5.1 (3.1.2 for Android 1.5)

Android Market address: https://market.android.com/details?id=eir.dialer3

Looks nice. Does this have any advantages over Dailer One (info here http://www.appbrain.com/app/kz.mek.DialerOne)? They seem pretty similar.

Just curious: how does it compare (i.e. why is it better) than the other dialers on the market?

Very nice. It looks like the Sense dialer. Thanks

Just installed it, crashed when I hit the number 4.

You can search for contacts by name using two different alphabets at the same time. So if you have contacts written in, for example, both Latin and Cyrillic letters, as I do, this comes quite handy, not to say essential. I wasn't able to find another dialer that does this, please let me know if you know of one.

Above is the first advantage over Dialer One. The second, which is for me also crucial, is that it runs on 1.6 devices, while Dialer One requires Android 2.1.

Third would be, that Dialer One doesn't seem to handle properly some Latin letters, for example German umlauts - as far as I tested, it wasn't able to find, for example Andreas Köpke by pressing 56. Maybe it's a language setting, but still, if it cannot search using umlauts unless your language is set to German, that is a disadvantage. Fast Dialer searches using an extended set of Latin characters, covering all Latin-based European languages, regardless of what language settings you have.

I would like to examine this. Could you please tell me at least the device you ran it on, what Android version etc. From your signature I assume HTC Droid Eris, which runs Android 2.1?

Don't like the "trial" in the name of attachement. Why it's there? You didn't explained in OP.

Force close after touch first digit.

If it's trial, then it is obvious, that you are making paid app. LOL, make working app first, then try to squeeze money out of it xD.

True.

It's a backwards-compatibility issue. I thought the AVDs did emulate behaviour of an actual device... I'll fix that.

The app does work on 1.6 for anyone willing to try.

Thanks.

Actually I did try it on official 1.6 for my country (my signature is a little bit out of date).
Oh, a new version - 1.1. I'll try it, however now my phone is on CM6, so I can't try it on Donut .
