Like most other reviews here I think this is far superior to the stock android dialler app and liked the free version so much that I purchased the pro version. I have recently found one annoying glitch related to android 5 and 5.1. With these releases the stock contact and dialler apps have dropped the ability to view the content of contact groups i.e. in case of emergency contact ... etc . It looks like a side affect of this update means that if I try to open any of my contact groups as set up in gmail within swipe dialer pro it unceremoniously stops the application. It lists them correctly and gives the correct number of entries in each but on selecting any dialer pro stops. It worked fine on 4.4 before my phone was updated to 5.1 so blaming android for the issue. Google the issue and you will find many seeing the dropping of ready access to contact groups in the stock applications as a big backwards step and are seeking workarounds using other 3rd party apps. However If the issue could be corrected in swipe dialer to return support for contact groups it would bring an elegant solution for the masses that are looking for a solution to the perceived android lollipop oversight.
not quite compatible w/Note 4 good features, pleasant design, but cannot be set as default phone/dialer app for Samsung Note 4. i try to make a call from Swipe Dialer Pro, but get prompted to select either the stock phone app or Skype to "complete the action". therefore, for me, this is a pointless app =(
Only one issue.... Right first off, I love this dialer over the stock android one. It looks better and this IS better. I can have a dark theme and that's just what I want. The only issue is, when in a call and using the keypad to select options (automated menu system hell) the dialer seems to default to the stock android one... How come?
Google Nexus Would love to see a few more stock options. Option to turn off smart dialer and ability to combine favorites with contacts. The option to toggle these off and on would be a great feature. Wish this app had Google voice integration
Improvement is always a plus ➕ At first a bit buggy & slow at startup which was very frustrating for me personally (I say personally bc it was a lag which some may not have even noticed bc they may likely be more patient than myself).. Anyway I recently replaced/upgraded my device & was hesitant to reinstall my SwipeDialer purchase, bc in truth I actually liked the stock dialer on my S5 & still currently has not caused any headaches for me or given me a legitimate reason to replace it. But I read up on the updates & so far so good devs👍
Ahhhh! I change the colors but there's just one tiny interface element that you cannot change... The little line under where the numbers appear when entering a phone number. It looks really tacky to have one color out of place. Don't believe me? Look at the white theme where it's a different color. Also, in the grid contact view the phone numbers under the contact are all messed up.
Some big changes in this update please let me know if you come across issues.
