    Direct dial and direct message shortcuts missing!?!

    Hey guys,

    I got the Droid X today and came from the moto droid.

    I LOVED the direct dial and the Direct message shortcuts on the moto droid. I used launcher x to put 6 in one row and my homepage was VERY useful.

    The Droid X has that Contact widget but it is ugly, huge, and i cant put it into tiny icons with launcher X.

    So my question is how do i get the direct dial and direct message shortcuts on the droid x.

    If i root and upgrade to 2.2 do u think i can get them back?

    If you select shortcuts instead of widgets, you can then click contact. This will give you a shortcut to that person's entire contact info. Not QUITE the same, but it works...

    Emitted from X.

    Yeah that is what i am using but it sucks. I need 1 click dial and 1 click text and i need regular icons so i can put like 20 of them on my 1st homescreen.

    I am in a fast paced business and need to be able to reach 10 people instantly.

    Have you tried a different launcher, or an app that allows you to make a widget with several items?

    I use Better Cut as well. Doubles as the way I was replacing icons.

    Why not use the Moto Blur "Contact Quick Tasks" available under Widgets? Doesn't that do what you want (1-click calling/messaging)?

    Also, I notice that Launcher Pro seems to blow up (zoom in?) on Moto's Contact Quick Tasks widget. It installs and loads fine, but you power up the phone and then the contact's icon (profile photo) is huge and has to be resized down to its original size. Not sure if this will be fixed in future versions of Launcher Pro.

    I was going to suggest this as well. It does exactly what the OP is asking for.

    I also hope the Launcher Pro issue can be addressed. The widgets look great when they're properly displayed.
