    is there an app to replicate the old keypad from the droid maxx?

    i think that i like that better than the current one on the droid turbo.

    please let me know.

    thanks

    When you say keypad, are you talking about the dialer or the keyboard?

    I don't know if there's a direct port, but there are a fair number of third party dialers in the Play Store you could check out. Might find something you like better, too. :)

    I upgraded from an abused S3 to a brand new Moto X (1st-gen) and I can't say as I liked the dialer at first. Still not a huge fan of it, but I adapted.

    THAT is a good-looking dialer! Thanks for posting the find. I'm sure someone else looking to get away from the unholy mess that is the new stock dialer will appreciate it, too!

    :)

    This is a nice looking dialer! But it makes me nervous the developers are in Russia. Call me paranoid I guess...

    I understand the paranoia, but keep in mind that being from the Play Store means it's far less likely to be malware. Also, if the permissions look suspicious, don't install it. :) Two good rules of thumb for any application.

    That's the problem, a dialer asks for permissions to just about everything on your phone.... a lot of data to give someone access to..

    Good read, I go over a bunch of permissions as I see them just to be sure I'm getting the same info. from all the reports. I too hate the stock dialer on the Turbo ... still have understood why they have a "clock" symbol for a menu button? But I figured I keep working it before adding to many strange new apps. until 5.0.? comes out and have a load of apps. that cause more problems than it already has or has had ( I hope ) LOL
