In ICS, when I make a shortcut with Direct Dial, it shows the label "Home" over the bottom-half of my contact's picture... 99% of my contacts only have one number anyway, so the "Home" title is useless & only blocks half their picture. Is there a way to remove this?
I've been looking for a widget that will allow me to direct dial (direct text a bonus!) from home screen. I've looked around online and there doesn't seem to be anything that suits me well. I tried making the "direct dial" shortcuts by long-pressing, but those icons are small and have a little "M" and image of Android which obscures the photo icon. I found the perfect app while searching for other stuff. I've attached the image to this post. Does anyone know what the app is that allows me to place those 2x1 icons onto the screen?
I am looking to customize my icons for direct message direct dial, to the best of my knowledge better cut can do this, however i have heard it is not compatible with launcher pro beta that i use, so does anyone know what it is compatible with? also what size do i need to make my icons and what format do i save them in?
I'm looking for the source code of the Direct Dial Widget (preferred from 4.1.1), I've looked and found the icon of the direct dial, in the contact.apk, it is - ic_launcher_shortcut_directdial.png, then I've looked in the manifest, and saw that it is used:
I found a way to get a Direct Dial shortcut using the free app Folder Organizer Lite. Long press the homescreen (or setup in Launcher Pro Dock) and select Shortcut, Folder Organizer Item, Direct Call, choose from your contact list. For the Direct Text using Folder Organizer Lite again. Long press the homescreen (or setup in Launcher Pro Dock) and select Shortcut, Folder Organizer Item, Direct Text, choose from your contact list.
Doesn't this phone support the direct dial shortcut on the desktop? I am trying to add contacts on my desktop that I would like 1-touch access to but the only way to add a contact is using the shortcut to contact. Clicking on that opens up the contact details and then I have to click on the number I want to call and select call or message. Is there any way to add a particular number for a particular contact directly onto the home screen? I know that the MT3G used to have a shortcut to direct dial option. Is there anyway to get that on this phone
I have been trying out new ROM's and it's been fun. Here is my biggest headache with doing this. I have about 10 contacts that are Direct Dial (speed dial to the rest of the world). What I do is put them in a folder as a shortcut to prevent accidental dialing. But I have to constantly redo this set up. Is there a way to save a folder and it's contents, such as direct dial numbers, to my sd card and bring it back with each new ROM or launcher? Starred folder doesn't work for me as it's more clicking when I am driving. The app Direct Dial still takes several clicks.
How do i create a speed dial icon on my home screen that doesn't ask me to decide if i want to text or call? when I make a favorites list, it still give options. I just want one click and call like my original droid.

call me stupid. I could not for the life of me figure out how to remove the preset Customer Service Speed Dial number 2. I would like to set #2 as someone else. Also are we only allowed 9 spots for speed dial on android phones?
I've been playing with various widgets, putting them on the home screen & building groups of apps to keep the screen simple, so I can actually see my wallpaper. (Nothing special, just pics I like.)
Problem is that huge Google bar at the top. Is there an simple way to get rid of it, like the select-drag-drop for other home screen stuff.?Also, there seems to be some limits on where I can actually put apps or widgets. Is there a way to adjust this too?I'd really like to put a dashboard widget in place of that Google bar.
Finally, is there a way to disable Google when I select or swipe nearby the bottom of the screen?
This is a real pain-in-the-patootie when playing solitaire & the cards get near the bottom of the screen.
Have sweeterhome and really like the way it works. Specific features are the trays that accept apps and/or speed dials. I also like the way I can have trays appear and disappear as needed allowing a great deal of functionality on 1 screen---1 button opens an app tray with my media apps, another for my utility apps, another for a group of speed dials I need for work etc. etc.
I have installed open home as my main screen replacement and last time I was in the menu option I selected the default button to Open Home. So now when I click the home screen I dont get the options to switch between Open Home, HTC's standard and or ahome etc. How do I remove the default setting?
