“Dial – The Best Way to Call” now available in the App Store

Dial

Dial – The Best Way to Call is now available on the App Store.  It serves as a replacement for the iPhone’s stock Phone app.  The layout is colorful and bright, but not in an overpowering way.  The look is very polished, and almost has an Apple-esque feel to it.

As you can see from the screen, pictures are prominently involved here.  You tap an icon to access your contacts and then select a person you want to add to your favorites.  All of your favorites are displayed with their name and picture and can be reorganized at any time.  And, of course, the rest of your contacts as well as the keypad are fully accessible.

This is a free app, but there is a $0.99 in-app purchase for a handful of different theme colors.  There are no ads to be found here, which is a plus.

The app has serious potential, but there are some shortcomings.  Two big ones for me:

  • If you have a contact with multiple phone numbers, you can’t choose which one to add to your favorites.
  • I haven’t found a way to delete favorites.  You can reorganize the screen, but there doesn’t appear to be a way to remove a favorite after you add it.

The app was released only a few days ago, so there is some hope that these issues can get fixed in the future.  If and when they do, this will serve as a worthy alternative to the stock Phone app.
