Speedy Dial!: iPhone App Written and Video Review
Do you wish you could call your friends, family and coworkers much more efficiently on the iPhone? Wish there was an app that would enable you to do this? If so, then step up to the queue, my friend! Speedy Dial! by developer BFSApps fits the bill and more. It makes it exceptionally easy to load what’s already on your phone’s contact list, and then display it in such a way that allows you to instantly call up to 48 contacts. If that sounds like something you might be interested in, then keep on scrolling beyond the break for our full review!
Concept and Functionality
So what is Speedy Dial? Essentially, the app is a modernized edition of speed dial for your iPhone. This is a cool concept, as the phone itself does not come with any form of quick calling, while platforms like the HTC Sense UI do. Here’s how Speedy Dial works: The app trolls through your contacts list, looking for names and numbers. It then displays these across three unique pages with color coded buttons to make your life easier. All in all, it’s a quick setup, too. The app is automatically tied to your contacts list, though you’re also welcome to peel back the hood and plug in those numbers yourself. You can also edit the buttons and their colors if you’d like, ensuring that you get the perfect fit for your auto-dialing needs. Overall, the app is a smooth criminal and we have no real functionality complaints with the app. It dials out as expected, and typically we did have a significant ease-of-use increase while using Speedy Dial.
Design and Interface
Thankfully, Speedy Dial! delivers quite nicely in the design department, as well. Its buttons are very clear and easy to peruse, and the wide spread makes it incredibly easy to hit your favorite contact for a quick dial out. We also liked the option to turn on “Prompt Before Dial,” that way we don’t accidentally call our boss, and can return to the app once we’re done dialing. Furthermore, we liked the variety of colors that are open to us to arrange and modify our contacts. And lastly, the app’s interface is intuitive enough that there’s hardly any learning curve.
On the subject, Speedy Dial is only a dollar for a limited time only. If you ask us, that’s not a lot to ask for the app. If you’ve been looking for a quality speed dial application for the iPhone, but haven’t been sure where to look, may we be the first to recommend the app. It’s got a lot to offer, and as future updates continue to improve upon the functionality already contained within, we have no doubt that Speedy Dial! will be the premier quick-dial app for iPhone in no time at all.
Speedy Dial! requires iOS 4.3 or later and is compatible with iPhone. A small expedite fee was paid by the developer to speed up the publication of this review.
