Sick of your boring stock dialer keypad? Well, here is an app that gives you some variety…an old school dialer….and when I say old school, I mean OLD SCHOOL! When you install iDial it will add the iDial app to your SpringBoard. Once you have found the app on your SpringBoard, just tap on it and it will open to a rotary style phone. To dial…just tap on the number to want to dial and drag it around to the mark (you know…like back in the day)! It even makes the right sound! As you dial a number is will show up in the middle of the screen and the complete number you are dialing will show at the top…once you have the number entered, just tap the Call button to call it. The phone number at the top, is not displayed with dashes or spaces (probably so it works internationally). Now, as cool as this dialer is…there is a reason we no longer use these kinds of phones!! It takes WAY too long to dial a phone number this way (unless you are like Doug and have a seriously huge amount of patience)!! You can also get to a list of your contacts by tapping the button in the lower left corner…complete with a sweet fade effect! You can also tap the About button in the middle of the screen to get more info about the app…complete with it’s own effect too! (however, the more info is in French so unless you speak French, or you want to see the cool effect, no need to go into the About section). Overall…a pretty cool little app…it would be sweet if it actually replaced your stock dialer (if you have the patience to use it!)! iDial is available thought the SOS iPhone source. Below are the screenshots.
Note: If you would like info on how to change your actual stock dialer…see THIS post.
