    Welcome. I believe that was a Moto UI widget, looks like Samsung has one called "Favorite Contacts" it is a 4x6 widget. Could put that on a secondary screen, or re-size.

    Interesting, must be a carrier specific thing? None on my VZW S4.

    Ah I am sorry, I didn't realize that was a Nova Launcher widget. I just went to my Touchwize home launcher and saw it is not there. Sorry OP, looks like Samsung does not have the same feature.

    Nova Launcher does though. :)

    Great launcher, faster than touchwiz, imo.

    I am with you. Came from Bionic, then MAXX HD and liked the favorite widget. I am currently using several 1x1 direct contacts on a page, which does virtually the same, but not quite as nice. There are some widgets on the Play Store, but haven't tried them yet and some are paid. I have played around with the Nova Launcher and there is a one, as Sydman said. It does not do the pull-down, to show numerous other contacts, like Moto's.

    I agree. The pull down was convenient. And having my top 4 was awesome as well. I'm doing the same thing with the 1x1... :-(

    I have retrieved the Favorites.apk from my Droid RAZR and it worked fine on my RAZR HD and now on my Xperia Z.

    I have uploaded the APK here:
    www.kochka.ru/users/dimmie/Favorites.zip

    I hope it will work for you as well!

    There is an app in play store called contacts +. It has a few similar "favorites" widgets. I really don't use it. (Not enough friends :-( lol) but I like a lot of the other features of the app.
    Hope this helps.

    Thanks, but the apk did not work for me. The widget loads and has one row of favorites. It says pull down, but but will.. Not slide down to show more contacts. Thanks again.

    What I did was make a folder on my home screen that says favorite. I then add direct call into the folder. I did this for my most called people. When I open my favorite folder it shows my direct contact people like the old favorite widget did. It just takes a while to set up because you have to select each person and drop them into your favorite folder.

    motorola favorites.apk on Galaxy S4

    Same for me - got the widget to load, has a "Pull down to open" bar across it, but will not pull down. I would REALLY love to make this work... any other ideas??

    The Samsung widget doesn't offer the collapse/pull-down functionality, which is what makes the moto widget so good. Hope someone can help us figure out how to make it work on the S4...
