    Hello,

    Today I released my newest app called Picture Dial.

    Picture Dial features a large (2x4) and small (2x2) widget which allow you to select favorite contacts to be displayed on your home screen.
    There are 4 different customization options which allow you to choose the way a contact can be reached: SMS, Phone, Email or Ask Me
    You can also choose between a light or dark widget theme.

    Features include:

    * 2x4 Widget
    * 2x2 Widget
    * Touch contact to launch SMS, Email, Phone or "Ask Me"
    * "Ask Me" feature allows multiple ways to reach a contact with only 1 touch
    * Light and Dark theme
    * Landscape compatible
    * Separate contact lists for each widget
    * Compatible on all android OS

    Can the contacts be in folders or sub folders, or is it limited to one of the main screens?

    Also, if you don't have a picture of the person, do you have a means by which you can use a large font ID, like BOB, or MIKE, etc?

    As long as the contact is saved to your phone, it doesnt matter what contact group the contact is located in..it will display.

    If there is no picture assigned to the contact, it will display a default android picture in its place. There is really no room to make the font larger if there is no photo present at this time.

    Just purchased the app, and I love that there is a better way to display Direct Dials other than the default links.

    The functionality is just fine. I'm running it on a Moto Droid with Bugless Beast v0.1 (Froyo 2.2).

    I've found two MINOR glitches (while running on a beta of Froyo 2.2, mind you). When I hit settings on the widget, than return to the home screen, I can't press settings again unless I close the process using a task manager. The other glitch, which is purely cosmetic, is if I have "Rounded Contact Portraits" enabled, I see this:

    Both are VERY minor glitches that I honestly don't care about. This app is definitely worth $0.99. Maybe some day we'll have custom color choosing? *nudge nudge* It'd be nice to have it match with Droptheme!

    Bought it this morning, very nice. I am greedy though and even though I have put two of the large side by side.... 8 is not enough dancedroid Any thoughts on providing the capability to tying it directly to contacts and being able to scroll through?

    Ooops, just tried to use it, if I have Ask Me and select (dial, email, sms) I get nothing. If I have a method selected (dial) then it works. Guidance please??

    Never mind, I figured it out. You have to hit the icon not the word.

    Hi Grimshak,

    Thank you for posting the bugs you found. I will take a look at this and see if I can correct it. Once 2.2 is officially released, I will have a better idea on where the bugs lie :)
