The only thing stopping me from making it my daily driver (or should that be daily dialler?) is that the numbers without contacts appear blank.

I often find myself needing to call people who aren't in my contacts and then having to call back the same person a few hours later. I may not know exactly when I last called them, but I often recognise the number.

Otherwise, it has a nice, clean interface and is a great option for people who are stuck with a stock dialler that lacks features like T9.

Thanks

Will it be able to run without the contacts and phone apk on a rom? Because that would be great.

Looking pretty sexy, but the mention of DPI funkyness (I use a custom DPI on my Galaxy S4 (380)) and no easy access to my Contacts is a dealbreaker. Should these two issues (if the DPI thing is even an issue) be addressed, I'd happily endorse the crap out of this. Regardless, excellent work!

Thank you, Spiricore. I didn't quite understand, what do you mean by DPI funkyness?

Thank you, Spiricore. I didn't quite understand, what do you mean by DPI funkyness?
let me try to answer that.

he was probably referring to the 2nd pic i posted here. the left half of that pic shows the stock dialer at the stock dpi of 480 on my device. the right half of that pic shows the stock dialer at a (custom) dpi of 380. what he & i wanna know is whether your dialer behaves so. or, does it scale properly at various custom dpi values?

please also state whether dual-sim support can be expected in your app (as shown in the first pic on the post referred to above). thanks.

In the recent calls list all contacts with no picture assigned have a picture of a guy. Can you please fix this? I don't want to see a picture of some guy (even if it is you lol), literally anything else would be fine. There are no pics associated with these contacts for a reason. At least an option to disable the placeholder pic or swap it for a big "?" or something would be fine.

Other than that, I really dig this app! Searching using T9 is much smarter than my TouchWiz dialer! Bought the Plus version for the dark theme and I'm loving it!

Also I just noticed that longpress 1 to call voicemail doesn't work for me.

Ok, got it. Reactiv Dialer should not have any problems with custom DPI. Its layouts are made to display normally on any phone density.

Dual sim functionality is not supported by Android. Phone manufacturers modify it themselves to add the functionality. So it is impossible to implement without having access to any documentation.

I will replace the picture of the guy with the first letter of the name of the contact. Also I will add displaying the name of the contact below.

Voicemail bug should be fixed in the upcoming update.

Thank you for liking the app!

    Showstopper for me is no contacts list. All it has is 4 favorite contacts or the call log.

    Unheard of for a dialer to not give access to the contacts.

    Hi, I'm missing an option in stock dialer's Recent calls(when the number is not in my contacts), for sending SMS directly, the only options there is Redial, IP dial and Details - right now I have to press on the name, chose Details then the 3 dots in upper right, then choose Edit number before dial, then the dialer comes up and I have to press the 3 dots there and choose Send SMS - really a drag to have to do it this way.

    From contacts it's not a problem sending SMS directly.

    So I'm looking for an App that works on 5.1 and can send SMS directly from recents calls/history.

    Can your App do this? I can't see it on the screenshots or in the txt.
